Operation: Playroom Organization!

Does your playroom look like this?

That isn’t my playroom but we’ve all been there. This is one side of mine though…total randomness.

Mr. Fix-it and I are always revisiting ways to organize the playroom. We came up with a plan…

We needed a way to organize and hide all the STUFF!
We purchased the Expedit shelf and these cute green bins to store the board games and small things like Lego. Our big guy loves Lego but the pieces are too small for his little brother to play with so up they go in the first bin where only our big guy can reach them.

The craft supplies, oh the crafts! I bought this drawer set at Walmart that holds all the supplies nicely and super tidy. Music to my ears.

Finally, where to put all the big toys i.e. the big boy trucks, boats, cars, dress up stuff? Hmmm…I ventured out to my go-to store, Homesense, to find baskets. These adorable baskets were calling my name…

I added a little carpet from Ikea under each one of them to give it a little playful look and the toys are organized and put away!

Don’t you just love when a room is organized? Yes, let’s be honest…it’s a playroom so toys will come out, be on the floor and scattered, but with the additions of baskets, shelving and storage they can always find their home again. Fresh.Fabulous.Sophisticated.

Together with my hubby, we're working on renovating our 1920's house that we purchased in 2010 in a downtown neighbourhood in Ottawa, ON. The house was in need of mega love, complete with variations of bad wallpaper and peeling vinyl flooring. However, we were up to the challenge. I am the Mommy to a 5 year old, a 2 year old and baby girl who keep me on my toes. My hubby is armed with the tools and is the magic in building my crazy design ideas. In come the realities of renovating, budget, time and kids are things that many of us have to work with. I write about creating beautiful spaces that are everyday friendly, with easy DIYs which then leave room for splurges and I hope to inspire you to do the same.

  2. organisation certainly is necessary to turn chaos into neat and orderly. Love the green boxes in the Expedit shelf unit, looks really good.
