BEFORE:
Operation True's room reorganization. This is the before.
We did a little overhaul of True’s room recently. I thought I’d share the process with you guys. The before photo shows the previous general set up, which worked great for a long time. But as True grows, we’ve found that he needs more floor space for playing and more wall space for storage. The cute little table we had in his room (an old table that we chopped the legs off of to make a shorter toddler table) was just collecting stuff. And the large orange magnet board was taking up too much space.
So, we went to work………
AFTER:

We took out the large magnet board and replaced that wall space with storage bins. These types of bins can get pricey at places like Pottery Barn, so we bought similar ones on Amazon (these blue ones, to be exact) and just spray painted them with a dark espresso brown. Really good move. Then, we put in the adorable red kitchen (you can find it here, for those of you who may be interested). And then we added in a much smaller vintage kids table and chairs which takes up so much less space than the other table.

Here’s a view of the other side of the room with more storage and baskets. Love using baskets, everywhere. I generally find good ones at Cost Plus or Michaels. 
I love his room. I love it when it’s messy. I love it when it’s clean. I love the sweet little collection of art on the walls. Love how he uses this room. How he sits by his bookshelf on the beanbag and reads and reads and reads. How he digs into his bins and brings it all into the kitchen. How he makes us dinner with his little retro kitchen and takes it all very seriously. Love his cool bed that his grandpa built for him earlier this year and how he stores all his little treasures and trinkets in the bed drawers. Love all the horse play on the bed, on the floor, and everywhere. And I love that we have lots of photos of his rooms in all their stages – from nursery to toddler room to now. I know we’ll look back on these candid shots and sigh with remember whens. Love all around. Here’s to living with kids. The best.
