If so can I see pics??<br><br>
We are moving again in 2 days (dont get me started on this...guy we rented from sold the house so now we have to move and we just moved 3 weeks ago, when the place we were living in was condemed), and the house we are taking has an area we will use as a playroom for all the kids.<br><br>
There is a bench seat with a little shelf on each side, under the window. I know we will cover the pads on the bench, and make curtains, but I am clueless as far as setup ideas and painting ideas and such. It will take us a few months to even get it finished but I want ideas so I can start planning and contact FIL cause he can get us the paint for cheap.

This is my son's playroom. It works our really well to have looks of shelves, a table for play dough, coloring, painting, etc. in there.<br><br><a href="http://groups.msn.com/Hopeelise/decluttering.msnw" target="_blank">http://groups.msn.com/Hopeelise/decluttering.msnw</a>

I have a playroom! I'll try to post pics later today. It is a medium blue, white trim, hardwood floor, with Beatrix Potter theme. It does have a crib in it for my daycare kids, though, and a changing table for the dipes.<br><br>
My favorite thing in the playroom is a piece of wood mounted on the wall with clothespins attached to it for holding the playsilks.

OK, here are some pics of my playroom. I didn't think I'd be able to get them up so early but one baby is sleeping and the other is having a snack!<br><br><a href="http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m258/StrawberryFields_album/DSCN2766.jpg" target="_blank">http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m...m/DSCN2766.jpg</a><br><a href="http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m258/StrawberryFields_album/DSCN2763.jpg" target="_blank">http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m...m/DSCN2763.jpg</a><br><a href="http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m258/StrawberryFields_album/DSCN2762.jpg" target="_blank">http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m...m/DSCN2762.jpg</a><br><a href="http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m258/StrawberryFields_album/DSCN2761.jpg" target="_blank">http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m...m/DSCN2761.jpg</a><br><br>
I like it here in person but whenever I see it in pictures I think it looks so lame so if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears (eyes? lol)<br><br>
I have to keep the crib up for now (naps--daycare babies) but I'm thinking of taking the changing table down and finding somewhere else to store the diapers.

I don't think it looks lame at all! I really like the little thing that is holding the playsilks,too! That is an awesome idea! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

We do. I'll try to remember to take a picture of it tonight. The kids are rarely in there these days, because the weather is gorgeous so they're always in the backyard. It's great to be able to have a room to devote to toys, though. Especially since we have 6 months of cold, horrible weather where the kids are house-bound. We have a few climb/slide-type toys that we keep inside, to help them stay active when they're stuck in the house.<br><br>
My favorite part of the playroom is a built in shelf that holds nearly all of their toys. The only reason it doesn't hold ALL of their toys is because they have a collection of Little People toys that are too tall for the shelves. I'd love to get rid of the damn Little People. They take up most of the storage in there.<br><br>
We're going to be painting it soon. The kids snuck some crayons in there and did some lovely artwork that even a "Magic Eraser" can't combat (any tips on crayon removal would be appreciated!) We rent, so I can't leave it like that when we move!

Yeah, the "playroom" is my 1400 sq. foot home.<br><br>
We try to keep the toys in one area though... specifically, in the house. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

Our dining room has become the unofficial playroom. It's conviently located in the center of the house between the living room and kitchen and easy to block off too. We don't have a dining room table in it, so it was pretty empty until ds's toys started accumulating in there... a small toy box, a learning playground, an indoor play tent. I also have a rocker in there. Nothing to really post pics of though.
