Today is share your Laundry or Playroom on Kelly's Korner!
Over the past few months, I've been working on our playroom. I can't believe it...but it's been MONTHS AGO, that I made a few things with my beloved sock monkey fabrics & promised to share when everything was done....I am SOOOO happy that it's all finally done!
My kids love to be downstairs with us, but the MESS was driving me INSANE!! Our playroom is upstairs where all the kid's rooms are, but I tried to create a room that we ALL want to hang out. Now that it's done, we are up there ALL the time...yes, even Daddy P...after the blue-ray player got put in, he's up there watching movies every chance he gets! ;)
Let's go up to the playroom...up the back stairs.
I LOVE to come in from the garage & catch a peek of my favorite faces up there!
Come on in & play!
I decided to stick with a theme of denim (easy to clean) & red (some polka dots) & sock monkeys. Most of the black frames contain their art work from school or photos that I have taken of my kids.
I begged & begged Daddy P to get us the beautiful bookcase from Pottery Barn Kids, but he would NOT budge! He has a friend who plays with wood & had him build cabinets for us...it took NINE MONTHS...but I can't say enough about how much I LOVE them (& the built in desk he added). They are exactly what I wanted & worth the wait (even if it was a brutal, long wait). ;)
I'm still filling the shelves...mostly with art work by the kids, trinkets that have a story & photos of people we love.
The back side of the room is full of books, comfy chairs, more art work, more pictures & the art table & supplies. I recently took the closet door off & sprayed it with chalk board paint...I LOVE the result & the kids have about worn that door out drawing & playing tic tac toe!!
I decided to try something different with some of the matted art I had, instead of frames I put Velcro on the back that way I can change them out easily. It works so far. I also LOVE old, old toys...I can't remember where this little wooden desk came from, but it's one of my FAVORITE pieces up here (next to the little polka dotty rocker that I found for $20 at Big Lots)!
So, that's the playroom...I'm glad you stopped by to play!
Do hop over to Kelly's Korner & check out the other beautiful laundry rooms & playrooms being shared today. I would LOVE to see yours too! :)
I'll be back this weekend to share pictures of my little birthday girl! :)
