The Army is awesome, sometimes you get the opportunity to live in great places. Sometimes you live in not so awesome places. Either way, sometimes you end up in some not so good housing.
Now, we just left some really crappy housing and now we’re in some pretty nice housing but there are still some limitations. There always will be until we live in our dream house. I have really been working with this house and decided to do a little blog series on how to make Military Housing work.
I decided to start with the playroom because come on, our kids have a ton of crap. In fact, even though I’ve made space for all these toys, I’m still planning on purging a bunch of crap once all the house is completely set up.
So, without further ado, here’s the playroom!
We have a huge closet under the stairs and since no matter where we put the toys, they always end up in the living room, this seemed like a perfect place. It stored everything except for the few toys that are allowed in the bedrooms. It holds all of the toys and at the end of the day, we can just close the door and be done with it. Or we can have Piglet clean up, close the door, and have quiet time.
Piglet has easy access to his bins and room to play in the rear. He likes to go in and out throughout the day, picking different things out. He’s not so good at putting things back just yet but that’s because he’s 2.5 years old and still needs some, ahem, direction.
The best part is, along the other wall is built in shelves that holds almost all my sewing and craft supplies. I am planning on hanging up some curtains to discourage tiny hands from playing with them. So far, he hasn’t messed with it yet but you never know.
I hope you enjoyed the first in this little series of mine. Next up, the kitchen!
