Are you sitting down? This is not for the faint of heart.
This was the state of my playroom.
I promise you, there is a floor in there- somewhere.
This room was basically a repository for stuff – broken toys, big toys, the occasional mummy. You needed a safety suit just to walk into the room.
I was utterly embarrassed by it. Especially since we bought awesome cabinets from IKEA to store all the kids’ toys. You can kind of see them in the above picture… if you squint and turn your head sideways. #OrganizationalFail
One fine day, I had a few precious hours to myself. I was giddy with excitement and set off to righting the wrongs done to this poor excuse for a playroom.
Amazingly it only took 2 hours to clean it out. I know, shocking!
In the end, I knew it was a win when Cooper ran into the room and screamed ‘It’s Clean – Max, the room is ACTUALLY CLEAN”
I even tacked up some custom border art made by Max. I printed a bunch of Halloween images (his favorite) and he painstakingly colored all of them and cut them out. Then we laminated the images and taped them together using clear packing tape.
Max was beside himself when he saw it mounted to the wall. He then stated he needed to get started working on his ‘Christmas Border’.
And see, I told you there was a floor buried in there.
