Small update for the playroom, mini makeover. I went cushion cover crazy at Ikea last week and I really like the direction I am going. I also moved the furniture around to create more of a sitting area space and moved the toys to better area. They were right at the top of the stairs before and this kind of always bugged me. In the future I plan on moving our dresser/buffet from downstairs to sit at the top of the stairs.
Anyway…here are the pictures of what has changed so far!
Here is a look at before again:
I removed the rug entirely. Too much random colors and patterns. Then I moved the shelves and art table to the wall under the “PLAY” sign. And turned the couch towards them. (behind the couch is a clubhouse playset…which will later be replaced by a homework/craft area but I am not sure on the timeline for that)
Then I got to work replacing my old pillows with new covers that I picked up at Ikea. But the fave, is the leopard print furry pair from TJMaxx. My 3 year old pulled them off the shelf at the store immediately, so I knew they would be perfect. I love how the mix compliments the painting, but doesn’t exactly match.
Then the former craft table I made into a little comfy bench. I covered my old floor pillows (for now) with a neutral drop cloth until I can locate or make replacements.
And I have something fun planned for those 2 white pillows in the middle, to bring some black in.
Next up I am working on a DIY zebra rug, and hoping it works out. And some other small touches to bring the whole space together! Thanks for stopping by for an update!
