kids' playroomTuesday, November 13, 2012
In having this blog I am working on my "Project+House=Home" where I am working my way "homing" rooms in the house. We started with the kitchen which we are almost done with that post is to come. In the meantime I worked on the kids' playroom.
When our first was born we went with primary colors....neutral so we could use the items whether our future were boys or girls. So we continued that theme. I prefer it anyway plus vivid colors help stimulate their young minds.
Although we went with primary colors we didn't have a rhyme or reason in regards to their toys and playroom furniture. It all just became a modge podge of random pieces that we gathered along the way. Every night after hurricane Monkey hit the playroom dada and mama would relunctantly pull enough energy together to clean things up. It just didn't work. Below you will see some pics of what I am talking about.
|Before #1: the new playroom will be in the left corner|
|Before #2 the rest of the room - she has taken over!|
Another feature I added are the chalkboard/display boards. These were actually AVON shipping box lids that my orders came in. I painted the edges primary colors, painted the front with chalkboard paint and glued on some clothespin and WALAH....art display boards. Definitely helps pull the room togehter, dontcha think?
The only thing I purchased for this room was the bean bag chair for her reading corner and the little monkey wall decal which was a $1 at the Dollar Tree. So for $16 I made my girls a whole new, more useful playroom.
In time we will be able to add more. I would like to add a quote above their bean bag and maybe a new paint color but for now this'll do just fine.
