I feel a little silly posting this, for a number of reasons. The first is that I do not particularly like my own voice on video and the last is that this room is an absolute mess, and there's a good five or six other reasons squashed in between those. But I need help with my playroom and I know a bunch of my Internet friends (and real life friends who I interact with on the internet) really excel at figuring out how to effectively use a room. I do not excel at this. Thus, my call to arms via the Internet to troubleshoot my playroom.
This room has plagued me for months. Ideally, I would like it to somehow be a mostly baby-proofed play room. But, I also need to keep our elliptical in there and my desk because we just don't have space in another room for those things.
So, here's my room. Come in and tell me how to fix it. And please try not to focus too much on my semi-Rochester, pseudo-Southern accent.
A few things to note:
I ended up moving the toy chest out from under the book shelves to the side. I am toying with the idea of spray painting the toy chest a solid color - ideas welcome. Labor even more welcome.
The shelf is actually the top hutch of my desk. It's not incredibly stable, and I probably need to bolt it to the wall. And by me, I of course mean Matt. But, I'm thinking with a few canvas baskets on it, it can work as a good toy receptacle.
Oh and the curtains? We had a friend sleep over recently and I realized we had no curtains. So I thumb tacked pillowcases up there. Because that's what 30 year olds do.
Okay, crew! Get to (virtual) work!
