Wow! That sounds so nice! I bet it is easy to keep clean too.

Re: Childrens rooms - pics please!

I'd say start with clothing, because once the closet is cleaned out, you may have some extra storage space or what have you. Decide on a number of items based on your laundry schedule and climate. I need to cull the t-shirts, but my boys (4 and 6.5) share a closet and each has 10 pairs of underwear, 7 pairs of socks, 3-4 pjs, 4 pairs of shorts and 2 pairs of jeans. I never got around to buying them sweats this year, but I usually buy them 2 pairs of sweatpants, too. They *should* have 10 t-shirts and l/s tees, and two sweaters each. They have one pair of shoes, and one pair of flip-flops (we're in socal). They also have one pair of rain boots, which is kind of silly seeing as it rarely rains here. We don't do dress shoes, either.

We rent, so we can't paint or anything. We want bunk beds, but don't feel the maturity level is there yet. These pics aren't great, but I took them for another thread here a few months back. Their room is tiny--10x10, which includes the closet, so we limit toys, and they need a clean floor if they want puzzles or board games down from the closet.

Re: Childrens rooms - pics please!

I need to get pictures of the closets to really be helpful to you, but for now I will show you what I already have pictures of.

I really prefer a room to look non cluttered. The only way I have found to do this is to actually hide the toys. My 4 year old daughter likes to pull out all of her clothing and constantly play dress up so all of her clothes have ended up either hanging in her closet or on the shelf in the top of her closet. All of her toys are in the dresser seen in the photo. One drawer for baby dolls, one for doll house accessories, one for books and so on.




Apparently I don't have any of the boy's room on this computer but they have a large walk in closet and their toys are organized on one of those kiddie shelves with colorful plastic containers. My youngest has all of his shirts on white hanger and the oldest has his on blue.

I do have a picture of our playroom though to give you an idea of toy storage in their. Again, most of the toys are in the dresser. I set out a few toys onto the floor shelf and try to rotate those every few days if i remember A also keep out playsilks and rotate out a few books.



Hope that helps some- will work on closet pics later!

Re: Childrens rooms - pics please!

Bug's current room...till we get his "big boy" room fixed up for him (which will hopefully be by the end of January).

First pic is looking into his room from the back hallway. Small basket of books, small little workbench with toolboxes and hardhat, and his little bed with the majority of his stuffies on it.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2723112...57629245346877

Other side of his room...with train table. His train set (minus the roundhouse) all fit into one drawer of his train table...and his wooden blocks all fit into the other drawer.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2723112...7629245346877/

One side of Bug's closet. Top shelf is his handmade twin quilt that will go on his "big boy" bed. Swim stuff hanging from the bar. Play cowboy hat and rest of stuffies on the bottom shelf. In bottom of closet is three drawer organizer. Top drawer has little toy animals, small construction machines, and Happy Meal type cheap toys (that get weeded out regularly). Next drawer down is pretend play stuff...costumes, blasters, swords, etc. Bottom drawer is bigger toy trucks, drum and xylophone, and other larger odds and ends toys. On top of organizer is basket of toy dishes and pans, matchbox car organizer, roundhouse from train set, and handmade dumptruck.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2723112...in/photostream

Part of the other side of Bug's closet. Top shelf has baskets of clothes to grow into. Few shirts for church hanging on bar. Extra diapers and pullups on shelf as well as Duplos, game, and stuffed ambulance (a recent acquisition). The ball caps normally hang from hooks below the shelf, but they were requisitioned for the stockings for Christmas!!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2723112...n/photostream/

Part of the other side of Bug's closet. Shoes on top of organizer. Top drawer has cloth training pants, underwear, socks, babylegs (that he uses for armwarmers now), etc. Middle drawer has two pair jeans, three sets pajamas, and a handful of random t-shirts. Bottom drawer has his five pairs of plaid cotton shorts (each with two coordinating tees), and two sets of backup clothes. He can pretty much pick out his own clothes from that drawer (except now it has gotten too cold for shorts)!!
http://www.flickr.com/photos/2723112...n/photostream/

Besides what is in his room he has two hulahoops in the corner of my room with my hoops, three shelves of children's books on the bookshelves in my room, a scooter and non-working ride on truck in the garage (both hand-me-downs), a sand and water table and a hand-me-down plastic picnic table on the back patio, and a cupboard of coloring books/puzzles/craft stuff in the kitchen. That is it, unless you count the hand-me-down (not from us) original iphone with no service that barely keeps a charge that we installed a few free play apps on for him!!

I love how you put the dresser thing on the side of the closet. Makes it look more open. I was thinking of having my kids share one dresser and putting it in the closet. They have a huge closet. I think I will try fitting it in on the farthest side and that will give more space to hide toys too.

It is! The older girls can put away their own laundry and the baby can put her pants and pjs away without help.

Lol, thanks guys She's my little nudist, always asking 'off' and pulling at her clothes. On the plus side since she's always naked she goes right in and uses the potty by herself!
