He likes it! Mikey likes it!

{If you don't get the above reference, I'm not even sure we can be friends}

If you're a regular reader, you know that E-beast would rather be the Flyin' Mayan than sit quietly at a table working on an art project. Feeling inspired by a few other moms that have posted pics of their art centers around the house, I took over a shelf in our dining room that really didn't have a purpose so far anyway.

Here's my best shot of the "before" (look past the skier...)

And "After":


We've got art supplies on two shelves and the bottom shelf full of puzzles, playdoh and games. And guess what? HE'S TOTALLY INTO IT! There's rarely a day now that goes by that he doesn't ask to color, cut, or crawl under the table with a puzzle. It's a modern day miracle, I tell you. Look out, pre-school, here we come!

It looks nice. Hope it stays organized...we have a closet in the kitchen dedicated to art/craft supplies. Unfortunately, it's a hot mess right now. I should clean it up, but it's much easier to just close the door and look the other way!
