~~~ A Throwback Thursday Post~~

When we moved in, we inherited this scary 70's room on our third floor. Paneling, wallpaper, a drop ceiling & a green rug of unknown age (which I temporarily covered with one of our rugs - in purple, which just matched the green soooo well, lol).  Fixing this room was the first order of business since we needed a safe, clean place for our girls to play with their multitude of toys.
Tore the paneling and drop ceiling down, had the ceiling replaced and painted the walls....  I purchased a white Expedit from Ikea as well as four Trofast frames and bins.  Kitchen, dollhouse and art easel from Target.

Behind the kitchen is an art area...

An art nook - smocks on the door, painting on the opposite side of the chalkboard. Ikea magnetic strips to easily swap out the artwork. Ikea door drape to "hide" the bathroom door.

And opposite the table with all of the supplies, crayons, markers, coloring books, all arts & crafts.

A reading nook with my childhood crib, and Ikea leaves.
