>Playroom reveal – drumroll please…..!!!

Although i still have a few little things i want to do, its 98% DONE

Just to remind you, this is what i started with…

1st set 002

Since then, i painted ALL the walls with chalkboard paint (black).  I was a little worried at first but it all turned out good because the wall color only goes up about 3/4 and then i have molding to break up the space.  Also with the white couch and the bookcase the space is definitely not dark.

The walls were super easy to paint, i did primer the space before with a dark gray primer and then it just took 2 coats of the chalk board paint – i just used a regular roller and it turned out nice and smooth – like a babies butt ;)

playroom 006

do you remember this table?

1st set 010

And these chairs?

1st set 007

And this dresser?

1st set 006

I painted the top of the table blue, bottom half white and then the chairs got a couple coats of red spray paint.  The table is the perfect spot for the kids to keep their snacks or to work on puzzles/drawing/coloring.  Then the dresser got a coat of blue paint and makes the perfect tv console – it hides all the game equipment.  I just took out the top drawer and added a shelf for the DVD and satellite box.  I even kept the original hardware – just spray painted it white.

playroom 008

I built this shelf about a year ago when we finished the playroom (this is in our basement).  The shelves were just built out of MDF. 
I built them just the right size to fit the tin buckets for toys.

playroom 014

Well, that’s pretty much it.  All in all it turned out to be a great space for the kids and they are loving writing on the walls.  I even go down there and write times table and their chores!

And can i just tell you, i got that couch off the classified for $75, the entire thing is slip covered and will be so great to just take those babies off and throw them in some bleach.  I LOVE white slipcovers – i seriously want to marry then :)

I still need to sew the pillows, make some chair cushions, and put some vinyl letters on the tin buckets to organize the toys – later.

I totally think this sums it up….!!!
