Playroom {Makeover}

Pin It
I mentioned here that our playroom has long been a huge collection of toys.  Some organization, but mostly chaos!

I've been trying to change that with a few projects, like my DIY Industrial Dress-up Storage, and our awesome Lego Table.

Well, I finally tackled the whole room.  I'll give you a run down of what I changed, and maybe you can get some inspiration for your own space!


First up, I created an art center for my oldest, Miss J.  She loves to craft, and that means that my house is a constant mess, in every room.

Her table is the exact same table I used for our Lego Table.  It's the IKEA Ingo Dining Table.  I spray painted it white, and sealed it well.  For a tutorial on painting and sealing furniture, check out this post!

Don't you love the white art cart I found at IKEA?  Can you tell I love that place?  

It seriously holds so much stuff- and looks super cute!

And can we just admire those curtains?  LOVE.  THEM.

I also grabbed a lazy susan at IKEA, and some cute metal buckets to create this spinning supply station.  Cute, right?!

My child is seriously the queen of tape, so a sturdy wooden tape dispenser was also needed.


I found these awesome wood letters (which are HUGE!) at Hobby Lobby.  After giving them a quick coat of shiny gold spray paint, they were ready for our {new} playroom!

I transformed our "stage" area with some gold dots from Walls Need Love.  This was BY FAR the easiest project in this room.  I just kind of randomly stuck them on.

Was going for a "confetti" look.  Because you know, our playroom is party central!


Those storage cabinets also got a makeover.  They were a boring brown.  I painted them Sherwin Williams Gauntlet Gray.  About 3 shades darker than my walls.  I love how they turned out!

To add the numbers to the bins, I just cut out some vinyl.  As seen in this post!

ps-the old vinyl numbers I had on there have lasted for the last 3 years!


We also have the dress up corner.

I LOVE this plastic dresser thing from Target. It holds SO MUCH.  Because all you moms know that dress up stuff can get out of control-real fast!

Got all the princess shoes.  Lined up!


The last piece of our playroom to get a makeover was our playhouse.  I painted the outside Rich Navy, by Benjamin Moore.  And then I spray painted the roof gold.

Because it needed a little glamour!

Love those gold shingles!

This beloved structure is here to stay. 
 Literally, because it's so heavy and big.  And figuratively, because it's Miss J's doctor office!

(a peek inside....)

I think that about wraps up our playroom makeover!
