Making Progress!

The room is making progress, I am pleased to announce! My Mom came to visit this weekend so we were able to get some things done while Layla was being well cared for...

We installed all the metal sheets on the wall: Part 1 of the Ball Wall.

The ball pitt will go in the corner. We are going to attach magnets to tubes that will adhere to the metal sheets and become "pipes" and "ramps" for the balls to roll through! It should be so much fun! :)

We installed the "seat cushion" circle ART onto the small wall - These are hooked up so that they can be removed and played with - lily pads, jumping stones, seat cushions, beanbag targets, the possibilities are endless.

The Colored Block wall now has book ledges attached in the white spaces - I am super excited about this library! I plan to switch the books depending on the season, holiday, or just a Layla always has something new to pique her curiosity.
And here is a picture of the bed with the little storage bins underneath - practical, functional, and also add the finishing splashes of color to the bed design.

I will post when we accomplish more!

wow! WHAT A CUTE bedroom! Where did you find all of those ideas? I am trying to do my 2 kids play room and I might use the book rail idea and maybe even those words for different areas of the are very creative.

Thanks so much! I love that I never was able to create a real "nursery" for Layla, because she is definitely out of that phase..and I think this exploration phase will last a lot longer. I have found a lot of inspiration from products I have seen, combining the pieces - the bed is a good example of that!

Really the inspiration for the room is the quilt I made for Layla and the fact that she loved playing with the quilting squares before they were her blanket.

I want the room to be as interactive as possible - so things I've seen in museums, schools, cool rooms on tv or the internet - so many people do AMAZING things. I would also say that my main concern is function. It's turning functional, educational concepts into tangible, child-safe, playful fun objects within the space.

If you do try any of these I would LOVE to see the result! Let me know how it goes! :)
