We have a monstrosity. It came with the house. I think it was at one time a dry bar, but I'm not sure. All I know is it's big, ugly, and very heavy. It does have a purpose though. It stores the toys (when they're not heaped in the corner).
I bought plastic totes from Ikea to store the toys in, but as you can see from the picture, that isn't working very well.
Last week, my bestie Chantal came down for a visit and brought her sister with her. Celeste is an organizer and would like to do this for a job, so in exchange for a very good grilled cheese sandwich, she helped me organize my playroom. Chantal (I've mentioned before how smart she is) thought it would be a good idea if we separated our very big room into two ~ one part for TV watching, the other part for playing. Before, the toys would be in front of the couch and in the middle of the TV watching area, so it was hard for it to be a dual purpose room. So far, things have been going pretty good. We have managed to maintain some level of cleanliness down there. Yay!
The toys and the monstrosity have been moved to the other end of the room.
Aah, gotta love organization!
