Formal dining room for a not-so-formal-family = school room! We just happen to have a space to contain our mess, but that doesn't doesn't mean everything happens in here! The kids go NUTS in their "FROG" (aka massive bedroom where we bounce in the bouncy house, play soccer when it's cold, etc), play for hours on end outside, bake in the kitchen, make a mess in the in-formal dining area. They're all over the place, but here's the room we try to contain ourselves in...
|The corner holds most of our supplies (for now), the wires to hold art work are just made of|
picture hanging wire, wrapped around screws.
|Table taken from the eat-in kitchen area, lights from IKEA, hanging pocket organizers from|
Wal-Mart. The calendar is a replica of Counting Coconuts. I hope she finds this flattering
because I adore her site!
|The black shelves will be for Eli for Tot Trays, I made the circle rug, pillows, and a|
friend made the flags while we were traveling.
|I enjoy art and creating so I try to share that with the kids. They made these signs|
that I originally found on Pintrest
|I had Eli do this one because, well, he's the one that finds the most enjoyment painting.|
|The kids love maps! Since their dad is in the Navy and travels the world I thought|
I'd put up all the continents, though it's a bit early. They're always asking where he's at
and where our US friends live so here's the place to track all that!
