1. Color. If it's fun, they'll come. This busy artsy spot is attractive, in part, because of all the great color, from the walls to the tools.
2. Containers. I never knew how important storage could be, until I woke up with a pipe cleaner in my back. I love these little containers...
And these drawers look like heaven to me. They're so big, they can hide all kinds of things.
3. Zones. While we don't have a playroom in our house, we have turned half our basement into a kids' zone. I like the way this room takes that even a step further, giving different parts of the room different functions.
Putting all of the crafty stuff on one wall makes sense - and it can evolve into homework space as kids get older.
The table in the center of this room will likely serve lots of purposes. Right now, it's a train table, but it can easily transform into a craft table when interests change.
It's never too early to start creating those zones - adding a little table to a nursery is a great idea.
4. Great walls.I love this chalkboard paint - it takes the craft to the walls.
