Have you seen those pictures of tornado or hurricane damage after the storms? Where it’s just piles of rubble? Houses are not even recognizable, cars are crushed, trees are snapped + things like ovens are in the middle of fields? Well that’s about what my kids’ playroom looked like. No seriously. Look at this picture:
There is a floor under there somewhere, I promise. This is the chaos that I was left with after many, many nights of just throwing all the toys in there + shutting the door so I didn’t have to look at it. Then the next day, the kids would go in there + get what they wanted, bring it in the living room to play with + then we’d repeat the whole process again + again.
It was totally my fault + I accept the blame. It got way out of control. Something had to be done.
So when we were quarantined in our house for weeks, I finally had the time to really roll up my sleeves + turn this around.
The first night I went to work in there, my only goal was to be able to make a path so you could actually walk in the room. The next goal was to be able to see the whole floor.
Slowly but surely, the floor made an appearance. I got a lot of trash thrown away + got things out of there that didn’t belong.
Once I got everything somewhat neat, I started shopping online for things to spruce up this space + organize their toys more.
It took some legit magic, but now their playroom looks like this:
Can you even believe this is the same room?!? I absolutely love the way it turned out! The dots on the wall are my favorite! They are from Wayfair as well as the map canvas + one of the toy organizers. The other toy organizer is from Walmart. The three canvas pictures of the babies are from Walmart too. The white + black bins are from Amazon + the little signs on either side of the window are from Hobby Lobby! All of these things were very affordable! I have linked everything I could here!
If you think there’s a room in your house that is beyond help, just know that it isn’t! Anything is possible if I can turn this madness around!
