Playroom Tour!


For Christmas we surprised the girls with a new playroom!  We actually moved their playroom from our family room to my office.  The room is a bit smaller, but it receives more natural light and has really turned into the perfect playroom.  We painted the walls an off white and hung some sheer white curtains, light and bright was my motto!  *Paint color is whisper white by Behr paint (purchased at Home Depot).

Sloan got the cutest little pink retro kitchen for her first birthday.  Unfortunately it broke in several places when we moved from Seattle to Portland two years ago.  She loved her little kitchen so much and we kept it wayyyyy longer than we probably should have.  We knew that a new kitchen was definitely at the top of our list when we started planning the girls new playroom.  We wanted one that was a bit bigger since there are two little girls playing at it now.  I scored a cute corner kitchen on Zulily and I'm sure glad I did because I cannot find that exact kitchen anywhere now!  I have searched the internet and cannot find it!  I found this corner kitchen that is similar, it has a bit more color than the one that we purchased.


Eric spray painted all of the hardware gold and I sewed little floral curtains.  I tried to use a peel and stick backsplash, but had trouble because there are curves in the kitchen's backsplash.  I ended up modge podging some wrapping paper instead and it turned out so darling.

***For the backsplash, I traced the kitchens backsplash (which was just a board) onto the floral wrapping paper.  I cut out the wrapping paper and set it aside.  I painted a thin layer of modge podge onto the backsplash (board) and then laid the wrapping paper that I had cut out onto the backsplash.  I smoothed it out with my hands and made sure that there weren't any air bubbles.  Then I painted another thin layer of modge podge onto the wrapping paper.  I waited for it to dry completely and then painted one more layer of modge podge.  It took a little time, but was actually super easy!

We also got the girls some new play food and this little condiment set (I cannot get over how cute the play food is!).  We stacked some of their food and dishes in tiered baskets (that we also spray painted gold).  Grandma completed the new kitchen with a darling wooden shopping cart, just the girls size.  The girls also love their tea cart, that cart has seen many tea parties!

We bought a $20 kids table and chairs set from Ikea, but it was a little too plain.  Eric white washed it and I modge podged some floral wrapping paper onto the table.  We painted a little gold onto the table and chair legs and it was complete!

We went with a super soft pink medallion rug from Rugs USA and I think it has just the right amount of pink (plus it's on major sale right now!).  I wanted a rug that was light and bright, but still had a little color.  I also wanted something that could grow with the room as the girls get older.

Eric painted a chalkboard wall and the girls have drawn on it non stop (actually way more than we thought they would!), it's been a huge hit.  You might not even notice the chalkboard wall though because the real show stopper in the room is our new Sugarboo art print.  I chose a quote by Audrey Hepburn and I cannot think of a more appropriate quote for a girls playroom!  The art print really is stunning, I love it so much!  You can save 15% with code HELLOBABYBROWN right now over at Sugarboo & Co (good through February 1st, 2017!)!  And make sure you stop by my Instagram tomorrow (Monday, 1/9) because I'm giving away some Sugarboo shop credit!!

Let's all take a moment to ooh and ahh over how cute Sloan's family drawing is!!

I had so much fun decorating the rest of the room!  My favorite decor items are all of the garlands.  The 'Hip Hip Hooray' banner is from my very sweet friend Hana of Hooray Everyday.  It paired perfectly with a colorful pom pom garland from Shop Leo Kids.  Julie of Leo Kids is like a yarn magician, her pieces are so colorful and beautiful.  I hung some gold tinsel garland (that I scored after Christmas for 70% off) and Pearl and Jane star garlands from the ceiling and it turned the room into a whimsical wonderland.  The ceiling garlands were kind of a last minute idea and my friend Amy of Pearl and Jane hustled to get them to me, thank you!  Phayre constantly points at the ceiling and starts jabbering and laughing, she loves them!   I highly recommend checking out all three shops, they're three of my favorites!

I hope you've enjoyed a peek into the girls fun little space!  Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    What brand is the corner play kitchen? I love it, I've never seen one that goes kiddie corner like that. Much better than a harsh angle. Hoping you can find a brand mark somewhere on it to let me know! You'd be my savior!

  21. You should do a VLOG about this room that way we can see the room in a 360 view. I'm trying to copy this as best as I can. I was able to find that exact kitchen corner kitchen but in brown. It's gonna be a lot of labor to get it to look like yours. But anything for our kids right lol

  22. Can you tell us where you got the shopping cart (or what looks like a shopping cart) from? It might be a baby stroller. Can only see half of it from the image you shared. Thanks in advance :)
