Play Room.....FINALLY!!!

Since I move into new house 2 yrs ago, I have wanted to convert my room (downstair) into Jona play room. But, my project has been delayed / postponed due to FIL came to stay with us off and on in the beginning (scared of bulgar due to new housing area). And, later, I preggie with Isaac -> busy taking care of 2 kids **shake head**

Last whole week, I only work for half day (thanks to Isaac nanny - she is on end year vacation:Langkawi)...take turn with daddy to take care of Isaac + Jona with help from my mum.

So, I left with lots of free time esp during the afternoon session where both my princes sleep like pigglets ;p


This is BEFORE the room being convert into play room...so messy with lots of unused stuff..golf set, bouncinet, etc...

This is the AFTER re-design of the room. I design one side as 'study place' for Jona when he enter pre-school next year - after school, doing homework. For this corner, I went to IKEA to do some shopping - only spend RM 139 for the red table. Just put the easel together same row with table so, Jona could do some drawing or mommy write something for Jona...

On another end, I placed a 3 tier cupboard for Jona to put his story books, colouring books, stationery (even tho he hasn't really go to school yet, the cabinet is almost full).... mmm, should buy a bigger one in future...in this corner, I place keyboard also (both Jona and Isaac love music so much). Jona can even sing "Do Re Mi, Do Mi Do Mi, Mi Fa So La Ti La Do"...and next to it, some simple table toys for Isaac. While Jona play with keyboard, Isaac can play with his table toys...

On opposite end of the study corner, I placed all the toys there. So, who ever want to play with toys, can sit and play there. So, at the end of the day, if Jona do colouring, then, Isaac can play his toys at opposite corner without disturbing each others (bravo to mommy for this idea, he,he....)


Finally, I do some 'touch-up' of the room. To make it more attractive and lively for kids to have fun.....What did I do? I put some alphabet floormat near the toys corner and keyboard corner. So, the kids would have more comfortable place to sit on while busy with their activities...and, on the wall, I stick some nice and colourfull 'decoration' - sun, cloud, flower pot, fish, deer, snoopy, etc.........

Comment from my family:-

Daddy: "Wow, u re too free lar...now, you can open a daycare/nursery...with this size of room, you can accomodate 5 kids....mmm, should charge RM 500 per month...."

Replies from mommy: "eeeiii...if you could give me some modal, then, I might open the daycare/nursery lor"

Jona / Isaac: Yesterday, I 'test' them out...they just love this room so much...Jona just so busy sit on the chair and do some colouring while Isaac just too busy playing with the toys...then, later, both play keyboard together.....then, later, Jona play with his balloon and Isaac just practise his new found skill of 'throwing' the basketball into basketball net....

Replies from mommy: "Yes, yes....my mission completed with success.." Guess because of my kids, I could come out with some idea of how to design their play room into nice and comfortable one even tho I'm not a pro interior designer. At least, my kids love it.
