I’m super bummed that we are not spending this Christmas in our own place. Despite that, I’m forging ahead with buying furniture and decorating the digs we’re in now. I want to drive up to Santa Monica to check out this West Elm rug in person one more time, but I might just order it because who knows when we’ll have time go head up there. I’m dragging my feet because of the final sale status. Ugh, lame.
My other concurrent project is our family room. We spend most of our time there because it houses 99% of the Munchkin’s toys, which by the way are EVERYWHERE. I saw this cute sling bookshelf at a friend’s house.
It will be PERFECT for displaying all of Munchie’s books and I love the storage bins. Along with the book sling, we need one of these bad boys:
I know it’s sort of hideous and all the toys are just hanging out, but if it’s not out in the open, I forget it exists. At least this way, I can keep track of a lot of the toys and not buy dupes (yes, this has happened :|)
We’ll eventually get a toy chest, but we’re in the market for a new couch, so I’ll hold off until we figure that out.
I always thought I'd be able to keep all toys out of the way and out of sight so the room wouldn't look like it was taken over by an army of babies. Bwahahaha, how little I knew....
