Here we are at the second installment of
Snapshots of Home.
Last time, I showed you our
Today it's all about the
We had a formal dining room, but it was transformed into a playroom/office.
So this room, I ADORE.
Its one of the places in the house I consider finished.
But really, all credit goes to that table.
My parents bought it as a desk for my Mom. It was $25 from a restaurant closing out and selling off their stuff. They painted it white and then a while later discovered it was too big for the space (as a desk).
It got handed down to MOI!
I am eternally thankful.
The black shelves (IKEA LACK), although I don't love them (because they are a pain to hang, and always droop and need fixing) but they are nice and practical.
The baskets (from Canadian Tire, $4 each) serve each their own purpose as a catch-all.

The EAT letters were $2 on clearance at Superstore.
One reader (*ahem* Courtenay) asked for more details following my Living Room post.

(Doilies are from Michaels)
The entertainment unit is actually a really cheap-o laminate wood from Superstore that I kinda hate, but it works and tries to look its best!
It was $60 and I switched some of the side shelves out for baskets, found at Canadian Tire.
This shelf that many of you have written to say you love, was a gift from my parents. They got it at an end of season sale at a garden center. I believe somewhere around $15. I ADORE it. It came in the gorgeous grey too.
My parents, painted theirs white to match their space:
