I've always thought a playroom under the stairs would be so fun. Our new place has the perfect space, but when we moved in we just kinda threw the toys in there and tried to make it organized. I have to say, I am not a big fan of plastic toy bins. I found things in there like rocks, hair bows, garbage, dirty socks. It seems like everything found it's way in there.
I also wanted a playroom that would work for both genders as I have a boy and a girl. I also didn't want to paint, so we started looking at wall decals. Turns out they were the best idea ever! They both decided on Sponge Bob Square Pants and after a trip to a few stores and about $85 this is the transformation we came up with.
They had so much fun putting Sponge Bob up and now they have to go and say good-bye to their playroom every night. So cute.
This space is right off of my laundry room, so they can use that space to play too. I like doing laundry and having them right there playing. It also wraps around the corner, but it angles down because that is the bottom of the stairs. There's not much to do with it so we just put a little table and some toys that wouldn't fit anywhere else. My little girls loves that space. I guess it's perfect for her size. Not me!
