Life really does have a way of keeping us busy, doesn't it?
Last week was a tough one, with the stomach flu making the rounds through our entire family. One after one, like dominoes on a sidewalk, we each fell ill and spent days recovering. While I promise to spare you all the nitty gritty details, let's just say I can honestly never recall being so sick, and hope to goodness to never experience such misery again! Luckily, out of all of us that went down for the count, Sweet Bean had the most mild case of all! Thank Heaven for small miracles, right?!
Even though Spring is literally just around the corner, we've been busy Spring cleaning and sprucing up around here since the turn of the page on the new calendar year. Nearly forty boxes to Goodwill and countless hours of work later, there's still much to be done. But we've definitely put a dent in our to dos and are eagerly awaiting the day we get to sit back and just enjoy the fruits of our labor!
This week's HTT topic is: Let's Play!---Show us your playroom and/or craft room.
I wanted to share Sweet Bean's little nook, where she sneaks away to play and enjoy some space all of her very own.
After having nearly lost what little mind I have left, dealing with the massive amount of toys constantly littering our living room floor, I decided many months ago that
No amount of baskets or drawers in the living room would do, I wanted Sweet Bean to have a place to play with her toys, occasionally leave them scattered about, and where I could pull closed a door and almost completely forget about the mess inside. I also wanted a space where GG could play, while still being within earshot and never far from my sight.
After discovering that GG loved the small space just under our front stairs, it clicked---this space would be a perfect play space! It's pint-sized, just like Sweet Bean, while still being large enough to accommodate shelves, cubbies, and most importantly, all her toys!
I'm not sure who loves the chalkboard painted door better, GG or me! This was definitely one of my brighter ideas, this door has provided hours of entertainment for the whole family!
Did you like my play space?
I sure hope so!
And while I wanted desperately to also have our gameroom makeover complete in time to share with you this week, sadly, it just didn't happen. With the new paint color (Cincinnati Hotel Briggs Beige) barely dry, it'll still be a while before I'm done putting the finishing touches on our room.
However, I'm looking forward to taking a stroll through your rooms today, gaining a bit of inspiration along the way.
Have a great one, y'all!
