Bye-Bye Play Room

Bye-bye play room, HELLO sanity!

For most of the Play Room's existence.....

it has looked something like this...

and rarely, after a frustrated Mommy finally cleans it, you could find it like this....

(I love the vacuum streaks!)

And then what seems like 2 minutes later...
(Look at her, sitting there, looking so innocent!!!!)

So my brilliant plan (and so far, it HAS been brilliant) was to 'tone down' the toys and therefore eliminating the constant mess.
I decided to forgo my extra storage space in the upstairs hall closet in hopes that it would hold toys and be a mini play area.
'Cause what Mommy needs a big closet for junk when she has a basement? ;)
And what children need a room, bursting with toys, that they can't pick up?
(Besides, now Gramma and Papa have a place to stay!)


Nada. Zilch. Nothin' stayed in that closet!!!!


And Mommy's favorite toy? The label maker!

And soon....
Ridiculous loooooooong shelf and hanging rack will be removed;
New shelves installed;
Re-organizing (cause I just can't do it enough).

Dear Dad,
When you're visiting this week, would you mind installing some shelves. I know we talked about doing a pantry... but, I was thinking, while you're in the mode maybe you could do another closet???
P.S. Free haircut and dinners in return! 


  1. Your dad does shelves about wherever he travels anymore! :) I love my labelmaker as has really helped get me organized.

  2. Looks great! And that's so awesome that your dad can help! I always try to have a list for my father-in-law when he comes to visit.
