Play Room

September 5, 2016

I recently decided to move my office upstairs to a larger room and eliminate our unused guest bedroom. So, with a newly vacant room right off of the kitchen, we created a play room.

I wanted a place for the kids to be creative and have fun. I also wanted to reclaim my living room. It will be a while before that really happens, but at least it won’t be so cluttered with toys. In fact, I really didn’t want the play room to be overloaded with toys because I have found that when there is abundance of toys, they play with nothing. This is really more of  reading nook, game room and place to do art projects.

I knew I wanted it light and bright, so I decided to paint it plain white and use color to decorate. It wasn’t hard to do gender neutral because I just used lots of colors! 🙂 I fell in love with this Safavieh navy rug so I knew that would add a lot of color. I also found these amazing watercolor fabric polka-dots decals on etsy and thought they would be perfect.

I think it turned out great and the kids love playing here.  There’s a reason why you see so many tents and teepees…the kids LOVE them. They were so excited when they first saw it…it was pure joy!

My dad built this shelf and rod for their dress-up area. We built it really strong and secured it to the studs because I know that my son would likely be doing chin-ups on it.
