Playroom Inspiration Board

Today I am sharing some playroom inspiration. I really need a playroom in this house and we have a few areas we could have one so I came up with some inspiration boards to share some of the items I want or already have and would put in the playroom.

These are some tables and chair sets I adore. I like the modern round one but I like the idea of having a larger table for the kids to play or craft on. The ikea one is also a nice one except I’d paint the red parts a different color. I also had an idea of maybe cutting down a regular size table to be kid height.

Having a playroom or just anywhere it nice to have storage solutions for toys. We use a lot of these Y-Weave Basket Bin 11" - Room Essentials plastic bins for toys, Target offers a variety of sizes and I like them because you can easily wash them out. I also use them for my workspace to store craft and shipping supplies.

I also like LANGYASHAN Storage Bins for storing items like stuffed animals or dress up…they are also great for laundry.

I saw this neat Vandoona Toy Storage & Organization Mesh Bags and thought they would be great for storing small toys like legos. They are even washable.

Toy storage like this Tot Tutors Supersized Wood Toy Storage Organizer are another great way to organize toys like blocks and trains and books. I have been wanting one of these for a while.

A puzzle organizer would like this Melissa & Doug Multi-Fit Metal Wire Puzzle Rack is a great way to store them neatly.

Lastly we use these Large Plastic Storage Bin with Woven Handles for large heavy toys, like big trucks and odd shaped ones that don’t fit in smaller bins. These are under $8 and often go on sale.

These are some of the toys we have, the dollhouse, the grocery store is such a great toy and the kitchen set has been a favorite of Harpers for a few years now. I like the pillow bed idea for a comfy place to read books and you can buy already made covers online or easily sew some and add pillows. Lastly I would want a couch in the playroom for mama. A futon one like shown or a pull out bed one would be great for sleepovers.

  4. Butterfly Craze Kid's Floor Pillow Bed Cover

  5. Novogratz Convertible Pink Velvet Vintage Mid-Century Diamond-Tufted Split Back Fold Down Futon Couch

Decorating the playroom would be my favorite part. I would love a more farmhouse feel and this rug would be great. I would choose a light gray color like this one by Benjamin Moore. This light fixture I already have waiting to be used. Target does not sell them anymore but you can find them on Ebay and Mercari.

This wall mural is adorable and would be great in playroom and a chalkboard wall would be greta as well. Wall shelving for little decor or items not for little hands are great for a playroom and I love this horse print.

4. Kids Wallpaper Soft World Map Wall Mural by Murwall

5. AVIGNON HOME Rustic Floating Wood Shelves 3-Tier 

6. Black and White Horse Print by Lexie Greer Printables


I think a swing would be amazing in a playroom but not sure if the hubby would allow that.

What would you want in a playroom?

Sewing and Craft Armoire

I recently shared my new workspace and you can read that here. Today i am sharing about the computer armoire that I painted and now holds my sewing machine, tools, silhouette machine and accessories.

You also can see to the right Harper’s craft area…I will share more on hers in another post.

We got this for free years ago and we used it for the family computer. It was nice to hide it when it wasn’t in use. When we turned this area into my workspace I wanted to keep it here and use it to store my sewing and other things. We ended up attached the desk top to it.

Before we made this into a workspace I painted it in simply white by Benjamin Moore. It was black with a green color inside.

My hubby added the hardware that I found on clearance at IKEA since it did not have any and was difficult to open.

Its really hard to get a good photo of the inside…not much light and anytime I open the doors Weston comes running to play with them.

I used a oops paint for the inside. Its a off white color that I found for $5 at Home Depot.

I did not paint the inside of the doors or the keyboard shelf because I plan to add organizers and cork board down the road.

We used the IKEA SUNNERSTA rail. The hooks and containers are great for organizing. It was a little difficult hanging.

I had the accordion peg rack and thought it would be great for storing my fabric scissors that I have to hid from my hubby.

The ribbon organizer I already had but I found this one that is basically the same Wooden Ribbon Ladder.

The little bins on bottom shelf hold power cords and other items those are from IKEA..SOCKERBIT Box.

Here is the only before photo that I could find on my phone from years ago…with the dog in the way. I could not find a before of the inside.

I still have so much more craft items I need to put away and organize and I need get rid of some that I don’t use.

Thank you for reading!

New Ceiling Fans And House Plant

Over memorial day weekend the hubby put up a new ceiling fan in our kitchen/sitting area and one in Harper and Westons room.

We do not have air conditioning in this house, we can not install them in the windows and central air is so pricey. Ceiling fans are great at keeping the area cool and move air around. They used to always be so ugly to me but now a days they have a variety of styles.

This white one was only $89 on sale at Home Depot. You can find it here but unfortunately it is not onsale right now.

This is the light we had. We used to have a kitchen table in here and never replaced the light when we decided to turn this into a family room. I still need to move my wall decor over since buying the sofa.

If your interested the sofa is from IKEA and we love it. I plan to share some of my favorite IKEA finds soon.

I liked this fan because of the style of the light it came with. Its very bright as well. The best part is its very quiet and we can sill hear the tv when it is on.

I chose this fan for the kids room. I thought it had a vintage vibe and I liked the matte black. Its bright enough for the space and a tiny bit noisy but I think that helps them sleep better even though we have a sound machine.

I bought this one for only $39! onsale the week before memorial day. This one is a flush mount style and hugs the ceiling wall. You can find it here.

Lastly I wanted to share newest hanging plant. I found this at Trader Joes for $10.99 a few weeks ago. I ordered a three pack of macrame plant hangers from Amazon and put this one in the biggest one. I hope I can keep him alive but I think i need to hang it lower or remove the blinds.

I also wanted to mention that I’m trying to post more and but I have been super busy these past few weeks and June is full of more activities. Stay tuned and thank you for reading.
