<p>We are currently in the deciding stages of what we want to do with the boys soon-to-be playroom and I'm stuck on what color to paint the walls and all of that good stuff.  DS1 has a ton of toys and so does DS2 (passed down from DS1).  They also have a TON of books, there will be a TV for movie watching and there is already a unit like this one: <a href="http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3509991" target="_blank">http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3509991</a> in DS1's closet that we'll use.  We have an art easel, small table with two chairs and some plastic crates as well.  There will also be a train table as well.  The room is 13x13, roughly? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, lend me your ideas, your pictures, your thoughts, suggestions - anything.  I need some inspiration!!!</p>

<p>We have somewhat the same things in our playroom (no pics, sorry, I'm a work).  I try to contain most of the toys in a huge rubbermaid-ish container with a lid.  They have a bookshelf that the tv sits on and the shelves hold all their board games, legos, videogames, etc.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've rearranged this room so many times to make the most of the space.  Right now the toy box, a couple bins of other toys and the bookshelf are along one wall and the opposite walls has the table, a small shelf of art supplies, the easel and a couch.  Which leaves them a good amount of open space to play in.</p>

No worries.  I've got a mental picture of what you're talking about.  Do your boys share a room?</p>

<p>No they have their own rooms.  But the rooms have their bed, dresser and some of their treasured toys and that's it.</p>

<p>We have a long rectangle room downstairs that is 1/2 playroom and 1/2 videogame room. The game room has 1 long wooden toy box (used previously for tack), one air hockey table, one lego table, 1 train table and lots of small bins that house toys by type.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>However, in my kids rooms they have a table with containers under it, whihc is wonderful for art.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We also homeschool...so my entire house in a toy room LOL.</p>

<p>We have this on one wall, though we have 4 columns of shelves instead of two.</p>

<p>The kids use the table for Play-Doh and coloring and most of their toys are in baskets on the shelves.  We also have one of those units laid on it's side for all of their books. </p>

<p>I'm currently working on the playroom, so no pictures, yet. It's probably not going to be picture ready until after Christmas. <img alt="shy.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/shy.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>However, I love going to Pottery Barn Kids for ideas. <a href="http://www.potterybarnkids.com/room/rom/romply/?cm_type=gnav" target="_blank">http://www.potterybarnkids.com/room/rom/romply/?cm_type=gnav</a></p>

<p>You could also google search "playroom" and look at the images that come up. My favorites are:</p>
