A Spoonful of Sugar; Kids Playroom; Guest Project
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.
Next I commissioned my sweet husband to paint the trees and a few birds. I showed him this picture and he went to work.
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.
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.
>This is just gorgeous! I loved those PBK trees too and her husband did a fabulous job painting them.
>I'm wondering if you had seen Dallas's collage work for the inspiration of the butterflies? I found these on Flickr and then checked out her Etsy page back in March and fell in love: https://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.134082674.jpg
>Now I wish I had a little girl! Amazing, beautiful and at one point scrolling down I had no idea it was your room vs the PB room! Wonderful job!!
I have never seen Dallas's work. I will be checking her out, thanks!!
>Gorgeous room, but I, too, am loving the butterfly art!
