bright, cheerful, organized playroom



Today I thought I would share how we organize toys at our house.  Fortunately, we have a nice size playroom upstairs where we store all the toys.  I like to keep most of the toys out of the kids rooms and stored in here.  We have a couple of different storage areas in this playroom, but I thought I would start with showing this wall storage system first.  Because I have boy and girl toys, I decide to go with bright primary colors.



The main wall system is from JCPenny's (no longer available.)  We've had it for about 4 years now and moved it to our new house and it has really held up well. 




I found these framed pictures at Homegoods.  Love the animals and the positive messages on them.



And in these two pictures above, you can see all the toys that the baskets, buckets and drawers are holding.  The blue containers and green buckets are from the land of nod and the red baskets are from Garden Ridge.  The drawers are really nice to store all the kids' movies and games.


I needed something in the space above the tv and so I added these spice rack shelves and colorful frames from Target.  The rug and pillow are from Ikea.

 
It's really nice to have a space that helps us keep some of the toys contained and keep them from taking over.  And I really love that it's bright and cheerful as well.

  1. Looks lovely! What a nice idea! I like it that you used bold colours and it is somewhat child appropriate but didn't go overboard with it. I'd totally would do something like this to my bedroom ^^ Thanks for sharing xx

  11. Would love to do something like this in our playroom someday! I tried to find the storage unit on Jcpenney, but couldn't. Maybe they don't carry it anymore or I didn't look for the right thing?

  20. Looks great. I had no idea you could something like at JCP! I'm trying to get my son to move into his big boy room so we can use his nursery as the playroom and this is exactly what we need!

  22. This is my dream playroom! I love the colors! I sort of attempted this in the playroom at my job but it's a very small space so I had to cram a lot onto the shelves. You did a wonderful job!
