Today I will be focusing on the armoire, our "entertainment center" in the boy's room. I got this armoire from a scratch and dent baby store for $175. It is solid wood and I am glad because my boys are always crashing into it with their bodies and race cars. It has gotten quite a few more scratch and dents on it in the last 3 years!
I hung a dry erase board on the side of this door so we can put up their memory verses. Noah was sleeping last King's Kids and did not get a memory verse =(. On the top shelf we have a small flat screen, dvd player and leapster/ leap pad storage area. The second shelf holds different color craft paper and flash cards
We have alot of flash cards and brain quests for the kids, so they have their own basket =)
I keep most of their books in these green cubes. I sort them by series, hardback, soft cover, and board books. My favorites are The "If you give a ..." series by Laura Numeroff. Also Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Petey Yikes.
The first drawer holds extra blankets and pillows.
The bottom drawer stores the larger books that would not fit into the green cubes.
