One Room Challenge {W2}: Toy Storage + TV Gallery Wall


Woo hoo, one week into the One Room Challenge and things are rocking! Hopefully I'm still saying that during week 4, aka hardest week of the challenge {for some unknown reason}... The best thing about the challenge is how motivated it makes me, because if I am being honest, I love couch sitting and instagram scrolling!  😂

Now our playroom had a couple storage places and I realized that I didn't love our open shelves.  My boys have ZERO desire to keep things organized or picked up, which the latter is the battle I chose to pick.  We do baskets which I like because it hides the chaos!  Can I get an Amen, Mommas?! 

Before


and now...



 I love how these cubbies have evolved over the years!  They are Ikea cubbies that we {wrapped with wood} back in January of 2018.  Shout out to Young House Love for the AMAZING idea!  Mack looks so tiny in my tutorial post 😭😭😭

While I am doing flash backs... LOOK AT WHAT THE ROOM LOOKED LIKE WHEN WE MOVED IN 😱!
 There was a million pound safe in that closet... 

Anyway, back to the cubbies! I decided to take the cubbies up another notch #punintended by adding legs which was easier than expected. 💕  

I added more Ikea baskets, a wood bead garland from Hobby Lobby, and some decor I already had.  I thought long and hard about having coloring stuff in one of the cubbies but that's a terrible idea.  I would end up with some massive murals on our very white walls.  


Now I haven't stained the legs yet, because I kind of was liking the contrast!  The gallery wall around the TV was one of those things that I went back and forth on as well... Is it going to be too busy? Why do I only have rectangular things?  So you know what I did?  Just started hammering things up on the wall! That's what you have to do sometimes, GO FOR IT!  What's the worse that could happen?  





Happy Thursday friends!  You can check out the other guest participants {here}!  See you next week!
