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.
