So this post is a long time coming i initially started to write this on March 27 (as per my daft opps.). I finally finished 99% of the play room and it was one of the first rooms i wanted to complete to give the kids there own space to do what they want and just play. I wanted to keep the decor minimal and simple so we can always convert this room into something else down the road when our basement is fully finished, which is why we designed it with french doors, to contain the toys or even if its an office or tv room it will contain the sound aswell.
I wanted a little reading corner where they can walk up to get there own books but a few shelves higher where i can put crafts without them distorting them and then storage bins for all the smaller toys, crafts and all the extra stuffy’s. Having a kids table and chairs was the best decision ever, i remember when i was growing up having my own little table and chair set to do crafts at, puzzles ect was so fun, i felt i had my own place. My parents actually kept the table and chairs and gave them to me when i moved out. I have kept them in storage for so long and when doing the kids playroom i wanted to incorporate apart of my own childhood so these chairs are from my childhood, along with the dollhouse and all the little dolls for the dollhouse were mine and my sisters too. OH! and i cant forget about the little camper, that was mine too and the girls are in love with it.
What is a playroom without a kitchen, this kitchen was in our last house and we got for vail one year for xmas and she still loves it and plays with it. Some of there other bigger toys we keep in the basement and i often switch toys out so they don’t get bored of the same ones all the time. So yes there is more toys!

Big Girl Room

Making the transition from crib to big girl bed I honestly thought it would of been alot harder and more work than it actually was. I wanted to use the crib we had for miss v for the new baby and there was no way I was going to have 2 kids in cribs, and I did not want to buy another crib we would only use a short period until miss v got a big girl bed. I decided to order miss v's bed at the end of September along with her new bed sheets and when it arrived we put it all together that night and the next morning she woke up to a brand new bed! she was amazed, she ran into the room and seen the bed, jumped right on and got under the blanket(we have a video). We left her bed in the guest room and her crib in her room for a few days as she got used to seeing the new bed and was able to get on and off herself and understood it was her new bed. We decided not to get a boxspring as it will make the bed too high then she would need a step so we kept the bed with the matress only until shes older and taller. We asked her if she wanted it in her room on Oct 15th and she said yes so that day we took out her crib and moved in her bed and she has been sleeping in her big bed every since. I was amazed, I expected crying, or fussing or even her getting out and coming to our bed but not even once! 
I decided to keep alot of the same decor, her dresser is the same along with some of the pictures and her book shelf but i added a few small details to make it a little more her own.
