I’m soooo excited to have this new space in our home!!!

This room now has purpose, design, and a warmth that just makes you want to sit and play šŸ™‚

You can read Saturday’s post to see all about the $35 Target 8 cube organization pieces that we totally made our own by adding feet and tops.

Using these premade cubes were sooo much cheaper and faster than having custom cubes made like the girl on Pinterest did.

I also love the fact that these aren’t built in pieces. I can move them around as much as I want in our home. I can even split them up – we have 3 separate pieces that can go anywhere we need them as our family grows!!

I found the storage bins at Target. I got them for 15% off this week with the back to school sale. I wasn’t intending to buy new bins, but ours didn’t fit and these are made especially for this piece of furniture. I went with some neutral colors so that I could use them anywhere in our house for the future.

If you look closely you can see the edges of the feet that I need to touch up the stain on. I thought they would be covered completely when we started so I didn’t worry about the tops. I’m going to go back with a tiny brush to touch those up.

The TV isn’t new at all. We previously had a little Dora TV Aunt Jenny gave us many years ago that our girls watched (they don’t have TVs in their room and nothing is connected to cable – just DVDs). My mom is the one that had the brilliant idea to borrow my grandmother’s old TV that was sitting unused at their house šŸ™‚ Thanks, mom and dad!!

The lamp shades are from Target a few months ago. They were on clearance for $7 and I hate to admit that I just bought them because I loved them and they were on sale (Brian is rolling his eyes at this moment). I didn’t know where I would use them, but I KNEW they’d come in handy one day. And now…they have a place! The actual lamps we’ve had for years and they’ve been used all over the house.

This is a close up of one of the 3 units that I could split up at anytime if needed. I haven’t added many accessories to the room yet because all of them are still stored in our guest bedroom. We’re still letting our house breathe from the 31 days of Freedom in July and I’m enjoying having less clutter. I’ll likely add something to the walls soon.

I’m thrilled with how our room turned out. And if you’re wondering, yes – all of those bins are full of sorted toys that we collected from around the house. And they BEST be staying sorted!!!

The exercise equipment is still there. We just shifted the room around.

I did change out the curtains – the brown ones above and the mulit-colored below were actually $25 total for all 6 gorgeous panels! A friend on Facebook was changing out her colors in her home and sold them cheap – and you know I couldn’t pass up that deal. Again, something I bought without knowing what I’d do with them….but YAY!!!

Design Secret: the multi-colored panels weren’t as long and didn’t go all the way to the floor. So, I cheated and put them behind the couch – you’d never know!! We raised our curtain rods and extended them out further to the window edges as well to give the appearance of bigger windows.

Special thanks to my little sis. She came over today while I headed out to my Dr. appointment and sorted out BINS and BINS and BINS of toys with the girls.

And this is what I walked into when I got home:
