So clever. -- Put two tall bookshelves on their sides, cover with a cushion, stock with baskets for storage.

Two tall bookcase laid on their sides.

On the wall opposite the media cabinet, custom cubby benches store bins of toys. A chalkboard table for playing doubles as a storage spot for larger bins of toys.

Possible option for "framing" the window in the play area with functional storage, would also add pillows to bench area since window is not as low, and add crown molding to make it appear more built-in

diy & another idea is you could make bunkbeds with this look/idea in mind too. That would be awesome for anyone with tons of kids, or you could do the bunkbed idea version on 1 side (with just 2 bunks) & window seat or futon or whatever on the other side. I love the storage.

Wow! An under the bed Lazy Susan toy storage.....this is genius!!!!!!!
