Hide CaptionShow CaptionA cozy red sofa provides a colorful spot for Dad and the boys to chill out and read.
When asked what they would like to see in their new learning center, the boys replied — a space theme, desks, trains and the color blue. Instead of a coffee table, a nifty train table sits in front of the sofa. On either side of the door, hanging mesh bags provide storage for toys and books.
