Flashback….Project Playroom

THIS is A FLASHBACK!
Repost from my very old blog before
“My Pigeon Pair”
Inspired to repost by
The Organised Housewife’s post on the Expedit unit!


In my dreamworld, our playroom would look just like this.  
In fact it would even contain the two children dressed so beautifully, sharing their gorgeous tea set, using their manners “Excuse me madam, one lump, or two?”.  
There would be no pieces of lego strewn across the floor. 
 No toast crusts in a bowl on the table.  
The books would not have torn pages or scribbled on covers.  
Everything would have its place.  
Every place a label. 
It would be efficient, beautiful, organised!!!  

 I just love this Cameron storage unit from Pottery Barn Kids.  I know this particular colour scheme is a little girly, well really girly, but the classic, crisp white could compliment  any colour palette.  The different storage elements including baskets and drawers that are child friendly and shelves and cupboards that can hide things away from tempting little artists!

 Pottery Barn Kids has long been one of my favourite things.  Do they not realise they would have a licence to print money if they ever went global?  Why is there nothing like this in Australia?  Well I will have to settle with Ikea.  Our Playroom has long been a work in progress.  It has had to constantly expand to control the mountains of toys!  Here is the playroom before Master 0 was born!
The Playroom – January 2007 – Before O was born!
A couch for feeding/watching children play/reading
A collage trolley
An easel with calendar
The Piano
Baby Swing
Bookcase
Bookshelf
and Childrens Table
This all came form my classroom!
Maternity Leave meant I had to put it somewhere!
The Playroom – September 2007 – The toys are mounting up!
The collage trolley has become a “Baby changing station!”
Out with the easel it was taking up too much room for a baby on the move!
THe lounge seemed like a good idea but became too dangerous with “someone” pulling themselves up on it!
The baby swing has also had to find a new home!


The Playroom – Makeover 1 – Out with the piano in with the storage!
The bookcase got moved to make room for a bigger “mat” play area.
We bought a “Trofast” storage unit from Ikea to house the million toys!
THESE ARE A MUST!
I LOVE IT!
With all its pull out drawers of varying sizes it
makes cleaning up a breeze!


The Playroom – October 2010
A new Ikea “Expedit” storage unit, the new must have!
The baskets along the bottom house 
matchbox cars, plastic kitchen set, other small vehicles, anything small 
that needs to be grouped together!
I LOVE our Expedit unit!  
When everything has a space, the space stays so much tidier!
I also love that IKEA makes baskets that fit the unit perfectly!

 Another new addition is the line on the wall above the table 
 It is actually intended for curtains but we use it for hanging pictures (also from Ikea)
It has little clips and you can also buy little plastic pockets to put your treasured pictures in!

Whats a playroom without a quiet reading area!  
I found a gorgeous Ikea net that cost a whole $15!!!
Underneath it, we put some huge cushions to make a comfy, private, chill out zone
and also a favourite hide and seek spot!

Last addition, 
 one very busy 3 year old!
