Playroom Progress and More Ideas

I haven’t forgotten that the office is suppose to be our next focus but I have a legitimate excuse. One, I said I’d share our playroom progress months ago and two, we hit our one year warranty mark on our renovation which has wreaked havoc on our plans until it’s complete.

Our Playroom {In Progress}

The wall unit is from JCPenney.

Daybed is the Hemnes daybed from Ikea. It has a trundle AND storage. However, we need a better mattress, bedding and accessories. Alphabet was purchased on etsy. Handprints are a DIY project from a previous post. Yes, that is a temporary paper shade that we desperately need to replace.

Our playroom acts as a playroom/guestroom. For that reason, I’m on the fence as to whether to make it kid focused or adult oriented. The rug was my inspiration piece so currently it’s filled with primary colors but, I’m struggling with the the pillows and curtains so I’m re-evaluating my decision and rethinking a neutral and mature palette.

Here are few ideas I saw on The Weekend Homemaker this week that incorporate a good mix of adult and child friendly decor.

But here are other options for the wall not pictured should we continue with a primary kid vicinity.

Like the chalkboard paint, table and chairs.

I like the wall art and clothesline of artwork below.

More to come as we make a decision on the playroom. Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime. Or sign up for email notifications of new posts on the right sidebar!

      Thanks Crystal!!! The paint color is Leaf Bud from Lowes. It’s the same color we have in Lily’s room but it looks completely different in the playroom with the low lighting.

    I love the Potterybarn kids with the giraffe and hippo, etc. Your window showing the outdoors will also blend in (as pictured). The colors are gentle and if I were a guest there it would be such fun to sleep in a room where you feel like a kid again!! Sue

    Hi Angela,

    Love the playroom. I did the chalkboard paint plus a coat of magnetic paint on top of that to 1 entire wall in the kids room. I also did the clothesline where I can hang their art (purchased it from Ikea) its an adjustable silver picture line that comes with the clips…

    I’ll post pictures so you can see…this week

    Angela, your room is looking great! I feel your pain with wanting an adult friendly space too, as we have 4 kids, and a 2nd living space that I would love for them and all their things, but I want it to look chic and inviting to adults too without compromising kid practicality! I think you are on your way to that, yours is looking fab ~ Top Job ~ Robyn
