With a few days to recover from our family summer vacation, we took a little time to organize the kids closets.

Board Game Art

One day while picking up the girls toys I became irritated at the sight of a partially crushed Candyland board game box.  I thought, there's nothing more worthless than a beat up board game with half it's pieces missing.  So I set out to find a better way to store our games.

I think I wanted to build a new wooden playset for the kids about as much as they wanted a new one.  This spring I decided that the girls finally out grew their old one, and it was time for something new.

We finally got to the point where the kids toys started to overtake the playroom in the basement.  We needed to find a way to organize all that stuff!

The Bar

When I finished the home theater, I bought a wall-mounted shelving unit to store my DVD's and CD's.  When it came time to finish the bar, I decided to use one of the same units to hold our liquor bottles and glasses.
