Hello, friends! Well, I finally got my playroom / craft room/ organized & done! Whew...it was rough!
Here is the room BEFORE! Wow, what a mess!
We had TOO MUCH stuff in a small space!
And, here is the AFTER!
Another view of the room ~ we have a jungle / animal print theme!
My desk area for crafts & such: the desk was my husband's when he was a kid, then I painted it to use in my classroom for my assistant desk, and now, it is a great craft desk! I have lots of zebra print accessories scattered throughout! Notice the zebra print cork board found at Hobby Lobby & the adhesive chalk board found at Tuesday Morning. I store my pens and office supplies in the small white 3-drawer plastic bin on my desk.
This three-drawer cart holds my craft & Moo Moo's & Tutus supplies. The pink craft tote holds all my paper punches, scissors, and scrapbooking tools.
I found this super-cute zebra-print fabric tote at the Target Dollar Zone ($2.50) last weekend!
I covered the back of my desk (that wasn't very pretty) with zebra-print fabric & pink ribbon. I've had the black & white toile lamp since we moved into our house. This room used to be a "Gone With the Wind" guest room (hence the paint color: Scarlett's Velvet).
I LOVE my chair! It was a flea market find last summer for $10 (already decorated). It just makes me happy! I call it my Dancing with the Stars chair because of the bright colors, sequins, and feathers! :)
These blue shelves were made by my husband for my classroom. Now, they hold Noah's big toys just perfectly!
Here is Noah's kitchen & McDonald's area. The McDonald's was a yard sale find for $3. He likes to serve us milkshakes and chicken nuggets.
To store Noah's puzzles, I put them in 2-gallon zipper bags, so that the pieces don't get lost!
Here is my new Tiny Teach storage area. Each month, I buy or make manipulatives for Noah & I needed a place to store them. I moved all the odds & ends off of these storage unit and found these awesome polka-dot fabric totes at Dollar Tree. I then made labels for each month and tied them on with polka-dot ribbon. I just need to get a few more to fill up the spaces! I've only been doing Tiny Teach with Noah since September!

This storage unit holds the majority of Noah's little toys. I made picture labels for them, so that he can learn to put things back where they belong. *It's never too early to teach organization, right? :)

I have to say a big THANK YOU to my awesome friend, Jenny, for giving up one of her Snow Days to help me organize!
So, I hope you've enjoyed your tour through toy-land! One project marked off my Organization To-Do List! YAY!!! Have a great Thursday!
I know I'm way behind on the 21 Day Challenge at A bowl full of lemons, but I'm now playing catch up!
