I didn't think I would ever get this done but I did!
The Grandkids playroom!
I had a beautiful work out room three years ago
when we moved into this house.
But then as the grandkids got bigger and more of them...
so did the mess.
So I made a nitch in the corner of my home office
for the grandkids to play in and all their MESS!
But that only made my office a mess...
I decided they needed a room of their own
and I gave up my work out/meditation room.
I emptied everything out and painted it a soothing green...
Then applied a paper mural to one wall...
My son-in-law- Danny will be coming over to frame out
the mural to look like a window.
I hand painted the "Growing Tree" mural myself.
I'll measure each child and write their name and the date
on the tree each year on their birthday's.
I hand painted the little birds on the tree, each one represents a grandchild
and the Gramma bird watching over them on another wall.
then I went shopping at IKEA. I bought furniture and accessories...
Hubby and I put furniture together for what seemed like days...
But secretly I love putting together IKEA furniture!
We put up the shelves on the wall and I did the finishing touches and finally the room is done and we are ready for the Big Reveal!
The Growing Tree wall
The Desk wall...
A whole desk with kid size chairs to do puzzles or color or do one of the many projects we are always doing... These chairs can also be brought into the dining room to join the adults at the table... Theses IKEA chairs are incredibly clever!
The storage, library and reading wall.
Just a few details:
A puppet theater...
Cozy reading nooks...
I made these frames for future art to be proudly displayed.
Oh and a monkey hanging around...
I'll be adding a few more details such as framing the mural to look like a picture window.
The kids names on the tree...
More things on the shelves... a valence...
And I am looking for a wood play kitchen on Craigs list.
Here's a short clip of the kids playing in their new playroom...
(Could someone leave a comment and let me know
if this video clip is working. Thanks~Rainey~)
