Hey, friends! Not going to lie - I was going to retake these pics yesterday since I didn't love how they turned out - BUT wouldn't you know that a mystery virus hit me HARD Monday morning and so my energy has been focused on pretty much surviving a day getting ready for school and a night of Meet The Teacher. So.... this is what you get :) hahaha
Our office is attached to our master bedroom with french doors. I LOVE that I can be working, entering grades, etc. and Dave can be in bed and we can still talk.
And yes.... the office doubles as our "Lego Room". It's one of the only spaces that we can shut both doors and keep pesky little sisters out. hahaha
The door on the right goes out to the hallway with the kids rooms, laundry room, etc.
Behind my couch is our "instagram wall"...
Okay peeps.... this is where the magic happens. And by magic I mean this is where I sit in my pajamas, eat Frosted Flakes and post too many pics of my kids :) This is also where I lesson plan, write tests, edit photos, etc. It's kind of my "home base".
The built ins and desk were here when we bought the house and they're one of my very favorite features (along with our brick wall and treed backyard). I love the mix of photos, books and other sentimental trinkets. Like a music box from my childhood collection, a glass container filled with my babies hospital bracelet and an antique door knob from a dear friends farm house.
There are mementos from vacation, bird nests that my kids have collected (on the ground) and handprint plates.
Wooden shoes that my grandfather wore in Holland, sweet boys that I had the gift of meeting on a mission trip to Jamaica and a heart tile gifted to my by Luke :)
On the other side of the office is a floor to ceiling built in shelving system with doors (not sure why I didn't take a pic) that I use to store craft supplies.
As far as playrooms go - we're lacking in this department :) It's the one thing that I wish we had (okay - I lied.... I wish we had a bigger bathroom for the kids and a bigger laundry room, too. hahaha). The area that was designed to be our "formal dining room" is our "play space"...
The bench is filled with Duplos and this is where the boys like to build train tracks, Duplo cities, etc.
Since we don't have a designated playroom - we store most of the kids toys in their rooms. The boys closet houses a lot as do the baskets in the storage unit in Griffins room.
So.... show me where you work and play! I can't wait to see your playrooms and offices!!! :)
