C likes to create. He always has a project going. His latest was creating a book to give his cute niece for her third birthday. As we redid C's room we wanted to make a place for his projects and the space under his bed seemed the ideal spot.
We gave his old desk a facelift (paint and handles) and picked up a second hand chair for a few dollars. Isn't it funny that it took seeing this picture to realize that we need to lower the chair. He has been using this for months without us noticing that his legs don't fit under the desk and he never said anything about it either.
C needed a place to keep his markers, colored pencils, crayons, etc. The hooks and buckets came from Lowes. We screwed the hooks right into the board that bolts the bed to the wall. The buckets were perfect. They were the color we wanted and came with a hole in the top making it easy to hang them.
This art station has been a great place for C to work on projects. The only drawback is that the bed makes for a low ceiling over the work space. There have been a couple of times when C has forgotten and gained a bruised head
