Toy Closet Chalkboard & Mural

I finally finished my toy closet.  It is complete! 
Remember back in my Child's Art Corkboard post I told you to take a look at the wall underneath the chalkboard?   This is my addition to that space:
the laugh. PLAY. grow letters are cut with my cricut & vinyl
I added some more painting in the room.
For fun, I painted some of the grass up onto the chalkboard.
I could never draw a squirrel from scratch, so this is what I did:  I opened up a blank print publication in Microsoft Publishers (you could also do this in Word) went to insert picture, from clipart, typed in squirrel in the search bar, found the one I LOVED -  re-sized it, printed and cut it out, traced it on the wall & then painted it.  It's really easy to do - you can do it too!

and... this is where I moved the Play-Doh.
 I decided to store the Play-Doh out of my boys reach. More like one boys reach {my Mr. 2 yr. old} because he loves to dump EVERYTHING onto the floor. Play-Doh in the carpet is not cool. So I have decided, Play-Doh time will be monitored better. I will need to get it when the boys decide they want to use it.
I labeled the baskets to match the room
and laminated the labels with these laminating pouches so they don't get ruined.
Here is the before, during & after photo:

  3. I am a new follower to your blog. Love it! This space came out so cute. I am thinking I need better play-doh storage here (I say this as my kids are cleaning it up right now!!)

  4. Oh, that is too cute. I just love the squirrel! You are so creative. The baskets and the labels look great. It makes me smile to see this room.

    When my boy was little, we built our house and I had a special room built off the family room with a pocket door so I could change him (he's disabled)and store all of his toys, clothes, diapers and such. It was nice and all but it's fun to see how far decorating has come in twenty years. I went back and looked at it after seeing your pictures and it gave me a good laugh. Back then, no one did stuff like that.
