Dual Purpose Playroom Storage Solutions

If you have a playroom without proper storage then I don’t have to tell you about the chaos that ensues in such a space. I personally moved my children’s toys into the playroom with the intent to close the door and forget about it. That only worked for so long before I was ready to pull my hair out due to the large mess that greeted me every time I opened that closed door. As a result I embarked on a journey to find storage solutions that would serve dual purposes and efficiently corral wayward toys, and art supplies keeping price and space in mind.

Here are a few ideas for storage solutions that can easily serve double duty in a playroom.
