finished the kidroom!

i haven't posted for a while, and here's one of the reasons! we've been working so hard on this, but we're finally finished. yay! the kids finally have a playroom! we've wanted to convert our unused attic into a kid room since we first saw the cute little kid door in the boy's bedroom. it was begging to be a kids play area, since it's only 6' tall at the peak and slants down to 1'! it was SO hard for dad and i to work in there hunched over! but so worth it now that the kids have a place for all their toys. they love it and want to camp out in there tonight.
the room's 8x30 with a boy side and a girl side (and threats from each camp to the other to leave their side alone!) we're not painting, but just letting the kids color on the drywall if they wish. em drew a butterfly already and mr drew daddy in his tool belt. :)
dad built a bench over the air ducts so they'd be safe (smart man) and that makes a great shelf for the toys. so now all the toys are in the kid room and their rooms are empty. maybe now they can keep them clean! (oh, one can dream!) :)

cool! that's a good tactic.. toys in one room.. less cleaning.. I keep the toys mostly on a shelf.. He takes most of stuff apart anyway.

FUN room. I would have loved a hide away like that as a kid.
