Here's what the playroom currently looks like. Props to the kids for picking up, but stuff is crammed everywhere. Here's where I'm picturing the built-in window seat with storage below and shelves along the sides.
We originally had an old couch with a slipcover sitting up against the window wall, which looked so much nicer than this current set up. But, while the extra seating was nice, the loose slipcover drove me insane and toys were always getting lost behind the back of the couch. Every day I pulled that thing away in search of a toy. We ended up donating the couch, and then I built this table so the kids could have a place to put their legos together (instead of taking over our dining room). I intended on getting some chairs for the table and never got around to it.
This "storage" side of the room is somewhat functional. I want to donate like every single one of those stuffed animals. OVER THEM. My thought is that all of this (minus the breading stuffed animals) could be stored under the new window seat and shelves on the window wall. I would then place their lego table on this wall.
Here's what's inspiring me:

I think it could be really great! And, it will perfectly transition to a more grown up lounge area when they're older. Can't beat that.
Which is your favorite?
