Playroom Before sBo:  Kids loft for legos and video games-in need of a “next step”

Playroom After sBo:  New TV is on it’s way, but this entertainment unit allows us to corral unused lego pieces, display finished lego masterpieces and house video games and accessories in this easily accessible media center.

Playroom Before sBo:  This empty wall was prime wasted space-soon to be turned into a study alcove for a pre-teen

Playroom After sBo:  This once empty space is now a functional study alcove for a growing pre-teen. Trophies are displayed nicely on upper shelves, out of reach but for all to enjoy.

Playroom Before sBo:  This space was cluttered with toys, with no home making clean up difficult.

Playroom After sBo:  With some re-zoning, labeling of bins and hanging hooks at “kid-friendly” height, allows for easy clean up.

Playroom Before sBoThis great space is large enough for a variety of toys and games, but without any organization it easily becomes an unmanageable mess.

Playroom After sBo:  With the use of color coordinated bins and labels, clean up becomes easy for kids, large and small.

Playroom Before sBoThis underutilized piece was randomly placed in the playroom serving no purpose other than a dumping ground for papers and such.

Playroom After sBoThis fabulous storage unit has replaced the old dresser and is now home for kids games, toys, legos and art supplies. A framed cork board makes displaying kids artwork a breeze. Everything is within reach and easily accessible for play and clean up!
