A dash of fun, a pinch of imagination, and a sprinkle of practicality. That’s the recipe for Ava and Kyra’s new playroom. With bright colors, lots of activities, and an open center for play, the girls are ecstatic to have an area all their own.
The room has been painted a dark pink color from Olympic called “Cerise.” This color adds a great twist to traditionally “girly” pink.
The closet has been turned into a playhouse/stage and will be painted “Shallow Valley” green (Valspar). Instead of using doors, the opening will be covered by two curtains made from the fabric above, which I found at Goodwill for only $3.
The two messy top shelves will have a short curtain over them that will hide the boxes from view, but still allow easy access if they are needed. These curtains will be made from the same material that was used to cover the paper lamp. You can check out the post “Some Shady Business” to see more about that project.
Since the girls have their new playhouse, they will no longer need the box house that we made last week. It will be moved out and two beanbags will be placed underneath the canopy to give them a place to read.
The fish and net on the wall were another unique find from Goodwill and only cost $4.50. The girls absolutely love them and that’s the whole point of the room, right?
Well, that’s pretty much the run down on the progress I’ve made with the playroom. There’s still a lot to do, so I’ll try to update as things get painted, moved, organized, and removed! Thanks for checking in!
