Pails seem like an interesting alternative to plastic buckets? Not sure.
Deluxe Art Center - $450
Another interesting art table idea. At least one friend recommended something similar (and her kids are the same age as ours).
Rectangle Vinyl Chalkboard Labels by Bradens Grace - $8
I love the chalkboard labels -- easy to change if we repurpose things, and easy to do with the chalkboard spray paint. But would the chalk writing actually stay on with little kids picking up the containers all the time, or would it just mean they had chalk dust on their hands all the time?
Big, soft, colorful rug.
Similar space to our breakfast nook, but I like how the benches make it feel more contained.
$30 on thinkgeek.com and could let us get some of our wires under control. Phone charging in the bedroom (so we can still use them as alarm clocks)?
