The Makings of a Playroom!
Friday, August 3, 2012
When we moved into the our new house, I think the room I was most excited to decorate was Harper's playroom/my office. It was a funky layout, I planned to make it super colorful & of course couldn't wait to paint a chalkboard wall! I am so happy with the progress so far & wanted to share a few pictures!
In the background there you see Harper's soon-to-be growth chart! Saw the idea on pinterest of course & I think there is a similar one at Pottery Barn, so we decided to make our own! I will post before & after pics with a tutorial once it is finished. You can hardly see it, but the bottom is "ombre-d" with gold glitter paint! :)
A colorful tissue garland, simple desk & chair from Ikea and colorful accessories were everything I had in mind! I also stole the rug from Harper's room while we wait for another one to come in the mail. It is from Home Decorators Collection and I wish I could have one in every room!
Some organization on a shelving unit from Ikea, Crate & Barrel baskets that I have all over the house & more accessories on the side wall. This is where I will eventually hang a colorful gallery wall & house all of Harper's toys.
Pillows & a blanket on the floor for Harper to get her roll on! Also, there are two small pocket doors that go into the alcoves of where the garage is. I have a million ideas of what I want to eventually do with these, hoping to turn them into little playhouses & maybe even a toy "bakery" complete with an awning one day! Good thing my husband is a handyman! :)
I also printed one of my favorite etsy prints to hang in the room! If anyone is interested in purchasing this for your fun playroom or nursery - I wanted to offer the digital OWLPHABET print at a discounted price of only $10 in my etsy shop! :) This price will be good for the entire month of August!
More to come as we make more progress (and probably paint more chalkboard walls!) all around the house!42 Comments »
