Kid’s Organized Art Area

Let me tell you how happy I am to finally be posting this! This means I have finally gotten my act together and created a clean and organized space for my children to create in! It has been on my to-do list for a long time now. I’ve gone through all sorts of different storage options for their supplies and I think I’ve finally landed on something I am happy with and so excited to share with all of you.

I found the white table and stool at Target. The white table is normally $49.99, but I got it on sale for $39.99. I had eyed it for a couple of months and happened to walk by it again one day when I saw the sale, so I had to grab it up. I am now kicking myself because I should have grabbed two…I do have enough space next to it for another one. I think I’ll be getting another one. The stool was $11.99.

The bar and buckets are from IKEA. I knew I wanted 3, one for markers, one for crayons and one for colored pencils. The bar was $2.99, each bucket was $3.99, the “S” hooks were $1.99 for a set of 10, and the wire basket was $3.99. The wire basket is used to hold their stickers. I used Martha Stewart chalkboard labels.

For the wall holding their papers and books, I used some wire racks that I found at TJ Maxx and/or Marshalls {I have a few of these around the house and I’ve gotten them from both places}. They were $14.99 each.

I used a white paint marker from Hobby Lobby to label them. The paint is washable with rubbing alcohol should I ever want to write anything different. The printable you see above the racks is one I designed myself – and a quote I made up myself:

I wanted the area to be a positive space for them while they create. I think it will make them feel good to read all of the signs. Tanner is the only one that can read them right now!

The other wall has two bulletin boards by Board Dudes that I had already. They were from Target. I thought it would be great for them to be able to pin up their favorite works of art. And the rest of the wall is filled with more positive printables!

Here is one happy boy using the art area:

So there you have it – our finished art area for the kiddos!

Verdict: They love it!

What do you think? Please remember to pin it if you love it! xoxo
