A Spoonful of Sugar; Kids Playroom; Guest Project


Londen from Sixty-Fifth Avenue also sent this pottery barn inspired kids playroom.  I think it looks great, here is what she did:

We were starting to be taken over by toys in the living room so a playroom was definitely in order. After looking for inspiration for the design, I found one in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Forget inspiration at this point, I loved everything about it and knew I wanted to recreate it but on a budget. 

This was my inspiration picture….
And this was the small room I had to work with.
I was not looking forward to painting over those dark walls. I read that the Aura paint by Benjamin Moore would be perfect for this project and it was. It covered the dark paint with 2 coats and no primer! It was awesome!

Next I commissioned my sweet husband to paint the trees and a few birds. I showed him this picture and he went to work.

Pottery barn was charging $100.00 for one decal!

 My handy Dad built a couple of bookcases for the room. This was his first time building furniture and they turned out great! These were a perfect first project because I was painting them. I only needed three tubes of caulk! Just kidding, only two! Love ya Dad!

There is a closet on the side wall so the bookshelves are not centered.

This dream house lived in the playroom until Santa brought the little one her very own train table. She is Thomas the trains #1 fan for over 2 years running. My dad to the rescue made the table.

On the other wall I made this butterfly art with a punch and a bunch of old magazines. I bent the wings a bit to give it a three dimensional look.

I really love that butterfly magazine art, that is awesome.
What do you all love the most?
