We removed the jack knife sofa to make room for our daughter’s playthings, and to give her an area that’s all her own. Removing the sofa allowed us to put in a child sized table and 2 chairs, plus a 16 bin storage system for her toys and books. The cabinet above her play area houses toys that must be supervised such as art supplies and DVDs.
This is where the jack knife sofa used to be. It’s just enough space for a table and 2 chairs and her 16 bin toy organizer.

Contents: Art supplies – coloring books, chalk, glue, scissors, paint, paintbrushes, color pencils, crayons, markers, pipe cleaners, stickers, bubbles, etc. Also, DVD player and DVDs, a box for my Kindle accessories and a box for my recipe collection.

The contents of the bins have changed dramatically over the last year. I’ll post an update to this blog soon.
After my daughter’s birthday and Christmas in the RV, we rearranged her play area. We stored her table and chairs because she never uses them. Anytime she wants to draw or play at a table, she always goes to the dinette. If she ever takes an interest in having her own desk / table, we’ll put it back in. Until then, the space is better used for more floor room.
She got a dollhouse for Christmas from her grandparents, so we put that where the table and chairs were. She loves her dollhouse. Below are the updated photos.
