I’m backkkk!!!! Yay, it feels SO good to be back home. We had a great time and I missed you all! It was a beautiful break from the everyday normal around here. We enjoyed lots of sun, beautiful beaches and learned a lot about each island. Getting off the plane yesterday in freezing cold Michigan was quite the shocker! Holy Moly!
Well, it’s 2016. I have a few goals in mind for the blog AND I’m excited to work on new projects around the house. I’ll keep you posted on those goals, but for now, let’s talk PLAYROOM. Miss Eva is getting a playroom makeover. I mean, she pretty owns every.single.room.in.this.house. Right? I’m also teaming up with some other ladies for a “New Year New Room Challenge.” I’m stoked! Not only am I excited to get this room whipped into shape, but also to see what my blogger gals are up to in their space! This will be fun guys. Each Tuesday in January, we will keep you posted. Last week in January, the big REVEAL people! That means, I gotta get to work.
Let’s check this room out!
When we first moved in, we painted this room. Our whole house was brown. Back then, I was more “Pier 1 – ish” in my decor style. I didn’t realize our house was so brown until my friend’s husband came over and sarcastically asked if we liked the color brown. YIKES!
This room is “suppose” to be the office. Before Eva was born, we had a desk in here. That’s it. When Eva was about four months old, that idea hit me to send the desk up stairs and make this into a playroom. It’s a great size room, on the main level and a perfect spot to hide all the toys with an easy shut of the door.
This room has evolved with Eva’s age. All the “baby” toys are now in boxes in storage. I try to rotate toys. Many of them are in the basement. I want this room to be “simple” and clean. Not full to the MAX with toys. I want it to be fun, bright and full of color. This room will be much different than the rest of our home.
Knowing I was redoing this room shortly, I stuck her art work and name banner on the wall. No, that’s not how I decorate! LOL — Looks pretty sad, eh?
Okay, ready for my vision? Here we go …..
- New Paint
- Remove Chair Rail
- New Base Trim
- Trim the Window
- New Desk
- Gallery Wall
- Area to Display Eva’s Artwork
- Larger Area Rug
- Create Centers: Art, Kitchen, Reading, Baby etc.
I think we can accomplish this! You with me? Let’s do it! Be sure to see the other game plans below and check back next Tuesday for an update on the playroom!
