the playroom

Photobucket

last saturday afternoon i had a burst of energy

i painted the basement from a dark green to a light bluey green

i filled the room full of toys hearts and all things girl


Photobucket

see those stairs on the right?

that's how my parents house and our suite are connected

we call it the rabbit hole

as you can see it is quite cozy down there.

fireplace. check.
big fluffy rug. check.
tv for watching strawberry shortcake. check.
queen size bed for mommy naps. check. (i wish...but there is a bed)


Photobucket

bookshelf hung at a three year olds level
yarn and felt heart wreaths i made for the room

Photobucket

toys toys and more toys (it amazes me that we fit most of these toys in soph's room)
a desk for mommy
part of the bed that always calls my name

the chalkboard i made for the room!

(i will do a before and after photo soon. let's just say there was lots of gold and the last supper was the main event on the inside)

guess who we had over as a visitor? little cousin jada!!



sophia has already had a few friends over.
we just send the kids down the rabbit hole and the mommies chill chat and drink hot beverages. good times.

over all this room has made a huge difference to us.
we have a very cozy and fun filled space to play in that really is a little girls paradise!!

so come on over let's play!

boys are allowed too :)

*the control freak inside of me feels the need to mention that the color in the room looks so much better in real life. seriously i couldn't capture the real feel. i am anti flash. i really dislike how harsh the photo's become. however i lack any sort of photography skills to know how to capture the light properly. one day i hope to actually know how to use my camera. until then oops.*

What a great room makeover. So wish we had a playroom. Our is our living room.

(I'm pretty sure we have that same bedspread in our guest room...IKEA?)
