I started on the twins playroom around the time I found out I was pregnant. I knew I wanted to do a Dr. Seuss theme because well, who wouldn’t? It is so cute! I finished the painting of it pretty quick and painted a few quotes and other cute things too. I have just now started organizing it though! Whoops! I guess im nesting with everything. I just really wanted their playroom to look nice and organized before this new baby gets here.
Our rooms aren’t very big so I’ve been thinking for a while on how to organize it without it looking “over-crowded”. And then one day on the Rachel Ray Show there was an organizing specialist on there and he helped one of her friends organize her playroom! It was brilliant! I took a few things from him and have used it but will end up doing it all because it is just genius.
Here are some before pictures…. and don’t mind the green baskets, I accidentally hung them before I took before pics!
lovely right? NOT! Well, all of that turned into this….
I think the baskets on the wall was by far my favorite tip he gave. For small places and places that have a lot of junk in it you should go up with storage. All I used were some cute baskets from target with the handles on the back and command hooks! I purchased some cute little J letters and a little dinosaur and princess crown and hot glued them to the baskets! They have so many of those riding/pushing toys that it was hard to hide those so they stayed on the ground but it still looks a lot better than before!!
I created this little reading corner for them. I had it pictured completely different. I love that picture on pinterest of the reading area and they used spice racks to put up the books. Well maybe one day but for now this will work for us. I put all of their books into a basket and put in their “house” with their bean bags. I left one bean bag outside of the house for cartoon watching too.
I loved this idea too since they have SO many stuffed animals. I put the bigger ones in the corner because they were a little too heavy to hang! I couldn’t remember what he used to hang them up with but I found some awesome utensil hooks by Command . Mine was a much bigger pack but this is what they look like!
I also put two in their bathroom to hang their towels up!!
One of my favorite walls in their playroom. I painted half the wall with chalkboard paint. The chalkboard paint and other paint is suppose to be separated by some trim I painted red but we haven’t gotten the chance to put that up yet. I thought that Dr. Seuss quote was perfect for this wall since it is a coloring wall;)
Any more tips??
