So today, let's talk about the playroom. This room is basically the mirror image of the mudroom, and it found at the very front of the house. When we first saw it, it looked like this...
removing that awful glue (it's gone now by the way....YAAAAY!).

I think I am going to continue the diamond floor that I painted in the mudroom. The mudroom and the playroom are exactly opposite each other, and our house is pretty small, so as much as I would like to do something else entirely on the floor - I want the house to flow as much as possible, and the floors should give that continuity.
Any sort of seating out here is tough, because it is a long narrow room (6.5 feet x24 feet), so the Ikea shelves turned cubbies and benches should be a good fit out here. Plus low storage is good for the boys, who tend to ignore anything more than three feet off the ground. I love the idea of the alphabet on the storage boxes, but I highly doubt we will have 26 boxes out there! Maybe numbers? Animals?
On the other side of the room I would like to make it more of an adult space, maybe some patio type furniture for us to hang out on, because this room is a nice place to be during both the day and night due to all of those wonderful windows!
Now I just have to make the time to set these plans in action! What would you do with this space?
