Sneak Peek: The Sunroom

Hey! Hey! A few weeks ago, I posted about this beautiful space in my new house.

Sunroom? Creative learning space? Tile floor angels? Is it all coming back to you now?

Well, I don’t typically like to display “works in progress”, but the kids and I are having so much fun in this room, I’ve almost completely neglected the rest of the house. Clark is still teaching guitar lessons from the dining room, and my dresser drawers are still taking up space in the living room. Completely un-blog-worthy material. This room however, is starting to make my heart go pitter patter.

Will you check out that counter space! Perfectly out of reach of little fingers, so I can safely keep unfinished projects lying around. As for the colored bags… well, those are for grouping colored blocks and other stuffed toys. What can I say… the pre-school teacher in me is in full bloom.

The hideous vertical box contains another set of Ikea Expedit shelves. These higher shelves will keep things like legos and crayons just out of reach but accessible enough to enjoy on a regular basis.

And then just beyond the fence…

Mommy’s little creative oasis…
I have always wanted to have a sewing station… a space to get in touch with my inner-Martha Stewart whenever the mood hits. Now, I not only have a sewing station and a place to hide needles, pins, and other notions, but I can still keep an eye on my cherub-faced little dependents whenever I get the urge to whip up a throw pillow case or curtain panel. #Bliss

I have loads more inspiration for this space, but this is what we’ve been able to pull together in a week and a half. Now, if I can just find the inspiration to tackle the laundry…
