My best friend... and Playroom ideas!

Hey Ladies! I've been hanging with my dear friend tonight, one that always has tons of great ideas. Her name is.... Google. Yes, Google is a she and she happens to be one of my most dependable friends. I can always count on Google to get the wheels in my brain spinning. I've been contemplating turning my office nook into a play nook. Mostly because it's half office half playroom, and I'm hating the way it looks.  It's a nook in our living room so I look at everyday, and it's starting to bother me.
I have so many ideas of what I want. I definitly want tons of storage, since that happens to be a huge issue it the rest of our house. I also want it to be colorful, fun, comfy, and transitional. We have lived in this apartment for the last 4 years and plan to stay here for a while longer, so whatever we have here needs to be able to move with us. Anything like built-ins just wouldn't work. Here are a couple different rooms I found and really liked and wanted to share with you guys. If you have any tips or would like me to check out your playroom please let me know!
I love the color scheme in this room. I like how the color of the rug matches the doors on the book case. 

This is a foam play mat painted in the Chevron print. Love Love Love this! Amazing idea.

The low table with storage underneath is great for little ones. I know there will be chalkboard paint somewhere in our playroom!

The book shelf built around the window is so cute

This looks like it was a t.v entertainment center and they decided to add a seat and chalkboard. I'm all about reinventing something, and hope to do the same.
I feel so inspired by all of theses rooms. I plan on spending some more time getting ideas. Baby B is almost 7 months, and really just started playing with toys, so I've got some time. I want it to be entertaining and educational for him, and not just thrown together. I just had to share my thoughts and ideas with you guys. Now I'm off to catch some zzz's before it's too late!
