MHCT&M: Art Stations for Kids

Happy Friday, friends!
 
It's time for a new room in the house to talk about. We've covered most of the main rooms in the house. This month we're focusing on an extra space that you may have, or may want to have: a playroom!
 
  
 
In our home we have a bonus room which is a large room over our garage. It's basically a multi-purpose space for anything we want! It's currently serving many purposes. It holds my craft space, acts as a spare bedroom (fold out couch), game room, random storage, AND a playroom for my little boys! It's not easy having a space that functions as so many things but we manage to make it work. 
 
Today, I am choosing to focus on art stations for playrooms and, let me tell you, there are ALL kinds! Big or small, as long has a child has a space to create, I think they are happy. 
 
 
Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!  
Pegboard Art Station 
 I love the pops of color on this monochromatic art station. I also love how all of the craft supplies are up off the table leaving more room for creating! 
 
Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!  
Art Cart 
This is a great idea if you don't have a dedicated space for art supplies. Making them mobile allows your child to create anywhere!

 Art Crafting Space 
All needed art supplies are within arms reach in this colorful art space.

 Art Corner 
This narrow art space uses height to it's advantage.

 Murphy Art Desk 
A DIY fold-down desk is a great way to save space in a room!

Craft Caddie 
This mobile craft caddie is a great way to pick up and go create outdoors or even at a friend's house!

Craft Shelves 
I'm a big fan of bins for supplies and these shelves full of crafty bins look perfect for little ones!

Crafter-noon Corner 
Not only does this space have a cute name, but the art space is so colorful and fun! I mean, that stool??? Yes, please!
 
 Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small! 
Craft Station Nook 
This is a brilliant use of space. You should see the before (hint, it was not a closet!).
 
 Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!  
 Giant Cork Board Display 
With all of the artwork your little one is creating, they naturally need a place to display it. I love that this art space comes with it's own giant cork board for displaying art!   
 
 
Aren't these all so fun? And so many ideas no matter the space you have (or don't have!). 
 
 
Must Have Craft Tips & More! 
 
 
Don't miss next week when we share more fun ideas for a playroom!

MHCT&M: Creative Bathroom Storage

Hello everyone and Happy Friday! 


 Allison from A Glimpse Inside here, back today with more ideas for your bathroom space.
My family and I moved to Germany about two weeks ago and we just found a place to rent. Germany, well Europe for that matter, isn't exactly known for having large bathrooms or kitchens and storage in their homes. We found a home with big rooms, large bathrooms, but still not a lot of storage in the bathrooms themselves so I think we are going to have to get creative. 



I rounded up some great ideas that I think would be good to implement in any bathroom space to maximize your storage needs.


 Use a shoe shelf with doors, IKEA has a few types of these, to place your essentials in.

 Instead of just placing hooks on the back of the door, use actual towel racks. Your towels will also dry much better!
I have no idea why I have never thought of this!

Limited space in the shower for your family? 
Hang a shower curtain rod high on the wall side of the shower and then hang shower caddy racks from the rod. Now the whole family can have all their items in the shower without cluttering up the bottom.

Don't forget the space behind the door and the wall. 
Hang small, shallow shelves down the wall for the perfect storage place for all sorts of products. When the door is open, you won't even know it's there! 

If you have a wall around the outside of your shower, with glass above, why not build drawers or a shelf into the wall portion? Such a great use of normally unused space!

Here's another great idea for those walls or partitions in a bathroom space. 
Add a slide out shelf for all your lotion, shampoos, bubble bath bottles.

This is a DIY project that is a wall shelf unit but doubles as a full length mirror on the outside.

 (Decor 6)
Think high! 
Don't forget the space above the door or other closet doors in your space. You can easily put up a shelf to store extra towels, toilet paper, and other more.

 (Decor6)
Here's another way you use can the space near your ceiling.
Build a wooden shelf above your toilet/sink and place baskets on it to hide all the items from view.
 Build a small storage shelf with ball jars for items that you use everyday so they are within easy reach.

Have a small wall in your space that you aren't sure what to do with?
Build a shelf from the floor to the top of the door frames or ceiling using pipes and stained wood.

Make every square footage count! Only have a small space next to the toilet but it is normally wasted and unusable? Hang shelves in that area for another vertical storage solution.

The space around a tub is normally such a waste that it almost begs to be used! 
Build in tilt out doors with storage baskets attached to the back to utilize this space to its full potential.


There you have it!
Do you have a small space where you had to add a creative storage solution?
If so, we'd love to hear about it in the comments!



Stay tuned for next month and a whole new topic! :)
