Manor Monday {New Playroom Table & Bookshelves}

My little Baby Bear is sick so the post is going to be quick. We are making progress in the basement. Slow progress, but progress none the less. Last week Hubby brought a set of bookshelves from the garage down to the playroom. One thing about my littles, if they can't see it, they won't play with it. So having toys visible is a must and the bookshelves help to keep them busy. Busy kiddies = happy mommy.

As we rework this space, I wanted to incorporate a table for arts & crafts and lego building. When Belle was a baby we purchased a Land of Nod Activity Table, which is designed to grow with your child.
I lucked out finding a set of 30"legs for the table discounted 30% off at the LON outlet.

But the deals get better, I managed to score seating for 75% off at Target! I never find deals on items I actually need!

So here is our new art/lego/snack table and stools:

I purchased the stools with the plan to paint them, but Belle & Hubby vetoed the idea in favor of the green color. I love that the stools push neatly under the table, as not to eat up valuable floor space.

It is also nice to have a safe spot to rest my tea or have a seat while the boys play.

And with that I'm off to bed...cross your fingers that the motrin works and I'm not up with a sick baby all night.


  1. Super cute and functional additions! I love the stools and color too :). hope your little one is feeling better soon! It's been a rough Winter for us sickness wise, I think we are ALL ready for Spring!!!!

  2. I saw those green stools and fell in love as well!! Love what you've done. Our play area is about to be in flux too. I just don't have the time or energy to start on the mountain of toys yet :-)

  3. What a nice play area - well organized! I hope your little one is feeling better soon!!!

  4. Hope your little one feels better soon! The play room looks fantastic. I, too, saw those stools at Target and thought they were such a great deal. They are perfect in your space and I love the color.


Thanks so much for taking a minute to share your thoughts with me! I love reading each of them. Have a great one.
