Guess what today is?! Playroom reveal day! Cue celebratory music and confetti!!!
I'm a believer in letting rooms like this evolve over time and not rushing the process. It may have taken us three years to finish, but we were able to implement storage and organizational pieces into the room that really make it function beautifully for us! So, let's take a tour, shall we? I included links to each individual project post along the way!
Here is the view from the hallway. The built-in was already done when we purchased our home. We've organized it inside and out, refinished a chair for it, and installed a bulletin board (tutorial coming soon!) to make it function well for us.
We really thought through how to organize our kids' paperwork and the built-in cabinets. The solutions we came up with are working out really well!
Looking to the left, you'll spot our cozy reading chair corner. The chair used to be in the kids' nursery, but we repurposed it for the room, adding a cute pillow to liven it up.
I love the curtains that we found at Lowe's for this corner and had a friend add the pom-pom border to the bottom!
The same friend (Thanks, Betsy!) took a pillow design I dreamed up and made it come to life for me!
Looking to the left, you'll spy our gallery wall and book ledges. I can't sing the praises enough of book ledges for kids! They can actually get the books out and clean them up independently! #winning
I switch out the books every now and then to keep it fresh.
We're still loving the gallery wall we created a couple years ago!
Little Man created the elephant art and the fingerprint animals a couple years back. I'd love to use the same method I used for the elephant to create a different animal with Little Girlie and add it to the gallery!
Turning even more to the left, you'll find our closet that we painted, added additional shelving, and organized. We've switched out a few of the baskets and moved the printer to the office, but for the most part, it looks the same.
Now let's look at the right half of the room! See that striped wall? That was the first project we did in here 3 years ago and we still love it! It's such a fun, playful addition! And I have an addiction to stripes, but we don't need to mention that. ;)
The bookshelves stumped me for years, but I finally got them arranged in a functional, yet cute way!
We added frames to display our kids' masterpieces that open up, allowing us to easily switch out the artwork.
Looking to the far right side of the room, you'll find the Hot Wheels parking garage we made recently. It's working out great and the kids love it!
Here's the befores from right after we moved in next to the afters with how it looks now!
And that's a wrap! We're so happy with how it turned out! All of the sweat equity paid off!
