Isn't it funny how with all our access to websites and pinterest and blogs, it's like all of a sudden we are ALL interior designers and stylists. I mean, I certainly am. I am constantly tweaking our house around to fit my latest mood or inspiration. Luckily, the Goodwill is one of my favorite stores (it's literally a goldmine full of under appreciated treasures) so it doesn't harm our bottom line that much but this girl needs another hobby. I am starting to tire of my endless quest for the magazine ready home. Turns out, the simpler my decor is - read: no clutter, no figurines on the shelves and actually, just get rid of that shelf and voila, no problem - the freer my mind is as I sit down on the couch for those rare little moments of peace and quiet. Maybe if I just create a new painting for that wall and...ahhh, I digress.
Anyhoo....here is what this post was supposed to be about! The playroom.
So here are some of my ideas that I think will work really well in the space:
I bought four or five (can't remember, which means I need to stop buying them) big floor pillows that I want to recover like the ones above. Fabric search is ON.
I am going to have two twin beds on one side of the room - for jumping on, future sleep-overs and a place to stop and snuggle for a bit. I will probably end up with two beds from IKEA since they are cheap and have drawers on the bottom already. They surface on craigslist from time to time. I really wanted to build something like this or this but I know I just don't have the time to do it and I am impatient to get this room done already.
Swings! A total must for a ruckus filled playroom.
Chalkboard...I am thinking I will paint a little portion of the wall.
And fill it with toys that make you move your body and use your noggin. Fun!
Ok, I swear this will be my last post on playrooms until ours in DONE.
