DIY Craft and Playroom (Phase 1)

Recently, Emma has become more restless than usual. I think her little sister is cramping her style. It’s really hard for Em to “work” creatively when she has a one-year old pulling out the paper she’s writing on. We’ve also had to limit what she can use because of Addie. No tape, glitter, glue, scissors, and anything else that Addie might put in her mouth. Emma is really creative and we’ve enjoyed her projects. This is why we’re breaking all the rules around her and re-doing our guest space.

We have a really awkward room downstairs. It’s been a guest room since we’ve moved in, but it’s a lot of wasted space. It was part of the garage at one point, but we brought it up to code and tried to make it more appealing. Last week we were forced to empty out our garage to have a new floor installed. ¬†Everything from the garage went into that room. That’s when I decided it’s time to get the “ultimate play/craft/sewing/guest room” project going.


First step, clean out the room. I’m not going to let this part take forever. So, I’m posting pictures today and giving myself one week to get it cleaned out and organized.¬†One week.


So, lets get this project started. This time next week, the walls will be cleared, the mess will be sorted out, and we can start phase two.

Who’s with me?

*I may or may not have moved a ton of things around to make this space look less cluttered for photos. You’re only seeing half the room! ;)
