Family room, and Play room

The main room in our home has been a difficult space for me to decide what the heck it's going to function as. I have posted pictures of this room last year as our living room, but now that our front room is the media/living/reading space, I decided that the bigger room will function best as a family/play room for the kiddos. It has worked out well that way, since they spend most of their time in that part of the house regardless of what I turned it into.

Here are some current pics of the layout, and one of my favorite additions to my vintage furniture collection... a cream armoire! It was love at first sight! Searched for one to house the kid's toys and such this past Spring, and spotted it on our local EstateSales.net. A few days after seeing it, I made it our own at 60% off the asking price. It's one of my all-time faves, and won't be going anywhere until I die or something...  haha.

List of favorite items in this room:
*The wool rug is one that my mom bought for me when I was 16, still love it as much as the day I picked it out 12 years ago.
*Round rustic table from Mexico, found on Craigslist last yr, it is now used for play time, puzzles, and just about anything the kids can think up.
*As stated above, the vintage armoire was found at an Estate Sale.... I'm not positive, but it may be considered a true antique? Built as early as the late 1800's or early 1900's?
*My husband installed the indoor/outdoor ceiling light and fan, picked out at Lowe's.
*Poster Art is from Hobby Lobby, I have two others like it in various rooms, love the vintage style lettering and drawings.
