Show Us your Life - Playrooms

This is "Show us your life - Playrooms" week on Kelly's Korner. I decided to link up, because I am really proud how our playroom turned out. It was originally the dining room, but we decided we would get more use out of it as a playroom. I got in touch with a local artist and she and I came up with a great plan! I wanted something that looked nice but was also practical. I also wanted something that would "grow" with my kids. At the time we did this, I was pregnant with my second child and didn't know whether boy/girl, so I needed something neutral as well.

This is the entrance. There were no french doors originally. Those were added when we decided to do the makeover.

The blue shelf I found at a yard sale. All it needed was a coat of paint. It has been a great use of storage.

We (the artist and I) came up with this cute idea to paint the trey ceiling as if it was chalkboard with the alphabet.

I had a local woman in our area sew these window treatments. When I saw the fabric, I knew they would go perfect in the room.

This is an idea I got from a Pottery Barn Kids magazine.

Media Center

Art Center - I also got this table and chairs at a yard sale....coat of paint and ta-da!

Apple Tree - this is also an idea I got from a PBK's magazine.

Clothes Line - idea from PBK mag.! I needed a way to display all of my son's artwork he brings home from school, and I thought this would be a cute idea to hang rope from each tree like a "clothes line".

Hope you enjoyed the tour of our playroom as much as I did creating it!
