Last week we added the new Flor rug to the Playroom, and it has got me super motivated (even more than usual) to get this room looking great. We have a long way to go, but I thought I start with a few updates to our Ikea Expedit shelf for storage and decor.
Here's where we started with; just a few storage bins, and a lot of staggered well... stuff.
And here's the update:
I added a few more orange buckets from the Martha Stewart line at Home Depot to coordinate with the orange in my sassy new floor.
I also found these great blue bins at the Dollar Store, for- you guessed it, 1 clam each. That's cheaper than Jersey Shore hair extensions.
For $1.59 each at Home Depot I was able to pick up a couple of 2 packs of these key chain labels which I could attach to each bucket to keep my anal retentiveness alive and well. If obsessive organization is wrong, then I don't want to be right.
|Only at my house is there a basket in the Playroom just for capes. We literally can't leave the house without one. It's getting to be a bit concerning.|
While I was at it I did a few reprints of the playroom art I made earlier to spruce up the colors a bit and have them play off the rug.
So just a few updates today, but I have a fun curtain project for this room I can't wait to show you later this week, as well as a play table I plan to build, and some more organization in the closet. (I know, I know, try to contain your excitement.
In the mean time, I'm looking for your opinion. What do you think about the wall behind the cube shelf? Should I paint it so the the backs of the shelves are a different color than the rest of the walls? I feel like it needs a little more, but I can't decide which color. As always- suggestions are totally appreciated.
