Now that my pregnancy is going better than the first 18 weeks, my OCD is kicking in like crazy. 😉 I have a thousand things I want to do before baby girl is born, so it’s a race against time. First project is the multi-purpose laundry/office/playroom. I have a vision of a fun, colorful play space for our girls. The wall color is already painted a pretty fun color – Palladian Blue, so I am using this as a starting point.
Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore
We wanted to create an art corner where Ella can color, use her magnets and chalk. I found tin buckets at Ikea and thought it would be cute to hang on the wall above her play table and chairs. The diy magnetic chalkboard will hang above the art buckets ~ work in progress.
Accessories needed to create hanging art buckets; (1) Fintorp Rail cut to desired length, hooks to hang the buckets from, (2) Fintorp caddy buckets and (1) Fintorp condiment bucket.
We purchased a LATT play table & chairs from Ikea & I am planning on a paint makeover to brighten it up a bit. The table base/legs will be painted the same as our trim; Dunn Edwards White, the chairs will be a pale coral peachy pink & the top will be painted with chalkboard paint. I am leaning toward Malibu Peach by Benjamin Moore for the chair color, but still need to match the prints with the coral I choose.
The playroom will be filled with lots of toys for our little ones to play with. Here are some of my favorites to name a few: Matilda Hen, Janod Alphabet Puzzle, Pig Wheely Bug, Pottery Barn Kids shopping cart & Lulu Blabla doll. We have some storage space in the cabinets, so I plan on getting a few numbered storage cubes from Land of Nod to organize toys and books.
Some decorative accessories for our shared office space includes the Riviera Chair from Serena & Lily, a colorful teal and yellow ceramic planter, zinc ampersand, fun confetti pencils to go inside of our monogrammed ‘P’ mug & a delicious produce candle from Anthropologie.
Since this is a multi-purpose room, we still have our laundry area to accessorize. I used some items I had in the house to use on display. I love the laqcuered trays from West Elm, so of course, I had to use one to hold laundry items. The Laundress Linen Spray, Nellie’s All Natural Laundry Soda, 2-Liter glass jar with wooden clothes pins inside.
The room isn’t complete without a display of adorable children’s prints in frames, so I plan to hang two or three white book ledges on one wall for a fun look.
The prints ‘we’ chose include the following:
Ladybug ~ Land of Nod
Caterpillar ~ Land of Nod
Let Them Be Little ~ Etsy
You are my Sunshine ~ Minted
Fiona & Her Carrot Cake Ice Cream Cone (Custom Colors) ~ Ez Pudewa
Sisters Dancing (Custom Colors) ~ Ez Pudewa
This completes my vision for a fun, playful space for our growing family. Now, it’s time to get to work 😉
