On of the best benefits of our move in six weeks is that we finally have a house that we actually fit in and can define our spaces. I love homes that have defined rooms and we think that the house we will be moving into at our next duty station will even have a place for a playroom. Currently all the boys’ toys fit into a small coat closet in our living room and whatever doesn’t fit is kept in the basement and rotated. This means that our living room is in perpetual shambles. We expect only to be living in our next house for a year, possibly two. This means that when we move in I need to have my plans for the house ready to go – otherwise we’ll end up with the “oh we only have a few more months, what’s the point” mentality of setting up the house.
I’ve begun collecting some items to set-up in the playroom to make it a fun and creative space for the boys. I’ve kept the colors basically to black, white and grey so that some of their more colorful wood toys can be displayed to brighten up the room. The area we plan to use is actually a sunroom with three walls of windows, there is very little wall space and tons of great light.
