A Grown-up Playroom Update

You’ve probably noticed that there are a few rooms in my little farmhouse that you’ll see over and over again on the blog and some rooms that rarely, if ever, get put in the spotlight. Let’s be honest, my 7 and 11 year old boys don’t exactly keep their playroom “photo ready” on a regular basis (as they shouldn’t!), so it hasn’t been featured much over the last almost five years. When we first moved into this house, I spent a ton of time creating the perfect adorable playroom for my little babies who were only 2 and 6 at the time. It was colorful and fun and had places to store all their books and tractors and trains and coloring supplies, and looking back on that “design” now, it makes me laugh a little at how far my style has come. We all have to start somewhere, right? 😉

The playroom slowly… and I mean VERY slowly… evolved over the last few years as my style changed, and I swapped out the bright pops of color for a more neutral palette that matched the rest of the house. Those of you who have my book, A Touch of Farmhouse Charm, got to see the first playroom photos I’ve taken in years, and although that design was a huge step in the right direction, there were still a few things I wanted to tweak and change. Imagine that… Liz wanting to change something!

One of the problems I had with the playroom was the functionality of the design. I no longer have little babies who want to set up their train tracks and drive their tractors around on the floor. I have one boy who is just two short years away from being a teenager and another little cutie who is already pushing the pre-teen years, and their needs for a playroom are much different now.

Playroom Makeover Room Reveal

This has been a long time in the making, but today I am finally showing you the Room Reveal for our Playroom Makeover! Yippee! This will be a long post, but stick with me because I promise tons of beautiful pictures showing how I cleaned, organized, designed, and decorated our awesome playroom! And don’t worry, I have links to all the projects we did at the bottom of the post : ) 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor

It all started back in January, after dear old Santa left a big pile of new toys at our house. Once the holiday rush was over and it was time to put everything away, I realized the monstrosity our playroom had become! There were toys stacked EVERYWHERE and definitely no room to put away new ones! It was unorganized, dysfunctional, and a straight up eyesore. I decided it was finally time to get things in order and give the boys a fun space where they could play, create, and read together! 
Warning: These photos contain the real deal disaster that had taken over our playroom. Boxes of Legos stacked twenty high, pieces of train tracks scattered all over the room… you could probably even find a small child missing in there. Photos like these can cause Moms to hyperventilate and you may need to avert your eyes.

The first order of business was to get all those toys organized. My kids and I went through everything together, and we donated a lot of toys we don’t use anymore and threw away piles of broken, useless stuff. It is amazing how much these kids accumulate over time! The majority of our toys got organized into storage cube shelves (like these) with fabric drawers (like these).

We decided what each drawer would hold, and the boys put all their toys away in the correct spots. The drawers are awesome for corralling toys with a lot of pieces like Lincoln Logs, blocks, and train tracks! You can read the full post about our toy organization here.

To make it easy for the boys to put their toys away, I created these Faux Chalkboard Medallion Tags to hang on each drawer. They have the trendy chalkboard look but won’t rub off!

There was a lot of empty wall space above the toy storage, so I added two shelves to hold some of the boys’ artwork and knick knacks.

This Framed Giraffe Art only cost me $1 to make and added a ton of cute to the room!

And these Plastic Elephant Bookends may just be my favorite project from the entire makeover. So simple to make and SO cute! A little spray paint makes everything better, right?

I added a few other pieces to fill in the shelves like a baseball with little sports figurines, some big wooden letters, our Disney pin collection shadowbox, and a piece of stripe art I created using leftovers from our Herringbone Watercolor Art

I’m still playing with the look of the shelves, but for now I think they turned out pretty cute. The canvases my boys painted with artist extraordinaire Leoma Lovegrove always make me smile and bring back such sweet memories. You can read all about our painting lesson with Leoma and the story behind the paintings here.

Moving around the room, I used a small, empty corner to setup a Creative Center for the boys where they can build Legos, color, and do crafts!
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
I found a school desk at Goodwill for $10, which gave the kids some workspace plus a little additional storage inside the desk. 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
I took advantage of vertical space for storage and hung tool organizers from the hardware store on the wall above the desk. The bottom one holds Legos and the top holds crafts supplies. On the opposite wall I hung three clear wall files that I covered in a pretty blue chevron contact paper to hold the boys’ coloring books. 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
The boys are always wanting to draw or build something, and now they have their very own space to do it! You can read the full post about our Playroom Creative Center here.
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
Next to the creative center is a toy box for some of the bigger toys and a little reading area. A bookshelf full of books, a rocking chair with a comfy pillow (which I made to match the curtains I also made!), and a soft rug is all it took to create a cozy and inviting space to read! 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
I added a fun gallery of colorful old records above the reading area to spice up the boring gray walls.

And I gave a washi tape makeover to an old lamp for our bookshelf. Yes, I said washi tape! I spray painted the lamp base a pretty turquoise blue and wrapped the middle in a polka dot washi tape. It took no time at all and looks super cute! I just love washi tape… don’t you?

In the center of our room is a big train table that the boys love to play at.

We also have two Baking Sheet Magnet Boards for the boys to have fun with. It keeps all those crazy magnets off Mommy’s clean refrigerator and keeps the kids busy for hours. It is definitely a win-win : )
And above the magnet boards is a gorgeous piece of Modern Watercolor Art that my boys helped create! They made watercolor paintings, and I cut them up into strips and created a fun herringbone pattern with them! The bright colors look stunning with a white frame.

On the last wall sits one of the most brilliant organizing/up-cycling ideas I’ve ever come up with: What do you do with a baby’s changing table once you’re done using it? Turn it into a parking garage!!
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
Even though ours was a cheap one from Walmart, it had good shelving and was still in great condition once our youngest baby grew out of it. And let me tell you Moms, big open shelving like this is PERFECT for all those big trucks and tractors! My boys are little farmers-in-training, and there is never a shortage of giant tractors in our house that are impossible to store. But our old changing table was the perfect solution to house all those vehicles, and the boys love “parking them in the shed” at the end of the day. 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
On top of the changing table parking garage sits the containers we use to store video games. I got tired of finding games all over the house and tripping over charging cords, so I used simple dollar store bins to store, organize, and charge their handheld games. 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
My kids are 100% boys, and that means we own quite a few dart shooters, swords, and toy guns. My boys think they need to have a full arsenal in case the aliens attack or Loki comes to steal the Tesseract. (Please tell me I’m not the only Mom who knows what that means!) They’re fun to have, but absolutely impossible to store. I was about to get rid of an old wrapping paper organizer when I realized it would make the perfect “weapon holder”. A garbage can would probably do the same thing, but I like that this organizer is tall enough to hold the long swords. I just hide it away in a small closet in the playroom to keep it out of sight since it’s not all that pretty. 
Kid's Playroom Makeover with lots of organizing tips and decor ideas! #playroom #kids #decor
As part of the makeover, we also installed some extra shelving in that small closet to give us more space for games, puzzles, etc.

Kid’s Creative Center

We’re in the home stretch of our playroom makeover, and I have just a few more projects to share before I show you the big room reveal! One of the hardest parts of putting this room together was getting everything organized. Kids are messy little creatures and tend to accumulate a lot of stuff! We had toys coming out of our ears! To help keep the playroom organized, I divided the room into sections. There is a place for them to read, a place to play, and a place to be creative! I used this little corner of the room for the boys’ creative center:
Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage

Kids need a space where they can spread out their crayons, get messy with finger paint, and build a masterpiece out of Legos. We were definitely missing a space like that before! The boys’ art stuff was mostly in my office, and they had no space that was truly theirs to get their creative juices flowing.  

Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage
I found this school desk at Goodwill last year for about $10 and had to have it! I had no idea what I was going to do with it at the time, but I knew I would come up with something eventually. It is the perfect size for our little creative corner! The desk has seen better days, and I went back and forth for awhile whether I should paint it or not. There is so much color going on in the rest of the playroom, I decided to leave it as is for now. But who knows how I’ll feel next week! What do you think… To Paint or Not To Paint? 
Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage

I’m a big believer of utilizing every square inch of storage space you can find, and using vertical storage is a great way to do that! To store my son’s coloring books, I picked up a set of clear plastic wall files from Staples and hung them on the wall over the desk. They held our coloring books perfectly, but since the wall files are clear it still looked like a bunch of cluttered coloring books thrown in there. I love organizing, and when I can turn my organizing efforts into something beautiful for my home as well I’m a happy camper!

So after a few minutes staring at the plain, clear wall files, I had a brilliant idea on how to hide the coloring books inside and make them look pretty at the same time! I grabbed a roll of blue chevron shelf liner I got from TJ Maxx awhile back, and cut a piece to fit each wall file. I peeled off the backing and carefully stuck the liner to the outside of the wall files. I made a small cut on the bottom corners of the liner to help wrap them around the bottom of the file, like a present. The pretty blue chevron stripe hides away the coloring books and adds a fun pattern to the wall! Mission: Accomplished.

Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage
On the other corner of the wall, I hung two organizers for the boys’ Legos and art supplies. I was walking through Menard’s one day and spotted these tool organizers that I thought would be perfect for storing Legos. There is nothing more annoying than getting up at 2 a.m. to use the bathroom and stepping on little Lego pieces! Those suckers hurt! 
Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage
I dumped all their Legos into a pile and sorted them out by color. I thought it would a great way to keep  all their Lego pieces organized and not to mention look pretty too! If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this photo of a very exciting Saturday afternoon spent sorting Legos… oh the glamourous life of being a Mom : )
Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage
The little drawers hold the Lego pieces perfectly, and we had extra drawers left over to hold projects they’re working on building. My three year old has a tendency to “Hulk Smash” the Legos my older son is working on when they’re left out, so now we can hide them away in the drawers until he’s ready to work on them again! 

Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage
I used the top organizer for the kids’ art supplies like glue sticks, scissors, pom poms, popsicle sticks, etc. I made sure they’re up high enough that my littlest one can’t make a mess with them when Mommy’s not looking! On top of the organizers I set this sweet picture a dear friend painted of my boys and our farm. You can read all about my boys’ art lesson with the fabulous Leoma Lovegrove here! 

Kid's Creative Center by www.lovegrowswild.com #kids #art #playroom #storage
Now the kids have a place where they can come be creative and work on their “projects” like Mommy. It seriously melts my heart to see my boys using their creativity to make special things for people! My oldest son once cut up an empty tissue box so I could store things in it at my desk. Any anytime my youngest son sees me painting something, he wants to be right in on the action! I may not be able to teach my boys how to throw or football or how to change a flat tire, but I can certainly teach them how to use their creativity!

This is my youngest son, Wyatt. Isn’t he a doll? I’m pretty fond of this little super hero.

Plastic Elephant Book Ends

Our playroom makeover is almost complete, and I’m so excited about some of the finishing touches we’re adding! First we found the perfect toy storage and made adorable chalkboard labels so the boys know where everything goes. Then we added a vintage record wall, herringbone watercolor art, magnet boards, and simple animal artwork to help decorate the space! Everything is looking so fun and colorful, and today I’m super excited to show you my latest little addition to our playroom!
Plastic Elephant Book Ends!
Plastic Elephant Bookends from www.lovegrowswild.com #diy #book

I spotted this photo on Pinterest awhile back, and instantly fell in love. I knew I had to have them for our play room!

Come to find out, these adorable Labrador Bookends are from Pottery Barn Teen, which means definitely not in my price range! 
One day while shopping with my blog buddy, Jocelyn, I spotted some little plastic elephants in the dollar bin at Michael’s and just knew they had to come home with me! Ever since my youngest son, Wyatt, was born, I find myself drawn to elephants for some reason. There’s some connection between the two. My aunt says it has something to do with the strong maternal instincts Mommy elephants have when their babies are born. Whatever it is, I just love them! 
So I picked up two elephants from the store and came home to see what else I needed to DIY some book ends. I had a couple spare pieces of 1 x 4’s at home, so I decided to use those to create the base of my book ends. I cut the 1 x 4’s into four 5″ pieces and sanded down the rough edges. 
Plastic Elephant Bookends from www.lovegrowswild.com #diy #book
Next I spray painted all the wood and the elephants. I first used a spray primer and then painted everything in a pretty teal blue, allowing to dry between coats. To protect the paint and give everything a nice, glossy finish, I also sprayed on a few coats of clear gloss sealer. 
Once all the pieces were dry, it was time to assemble the book ends. First I laid one wood block down on a table. I applied wood glue to the long edge of another wood block and placed it sitting upright on the far edge of the bottom block, creating an L shape. Perpendicular to the bottom block, if you prefer : )
Plastic Elephant Bookends from www.lovegrowswild.com #diy #book
I held the block in place for a few seconds to allow the glue to set a bit, and then repeated the process with the other two wood blocks. To attach the elephants to the book end bases, I used a dab of my favorite E-6000 glue on the bottom of the elephant’s feet and placed him centered on the bottom wood block. You can use whatever super glue you have on hand! 
After allowing the glue to adequately dry, I set the adorable new book ends on our shelves in the playroom:

I was worried they wouldn’t be heavy enough, but they hold the books up perfectly! And seriously, how cute is a tiny teal elephant? Swoon!!
Plastic Elephant Bookends from www.lovegrowswild.com #diy #book
Just think of all the other fun animals you could use too!

But these little elephants are definitely my favorite : )

And they look adorable sitting next to the Framed Giraffe Art I made with a simple dollar store frame and scrapbook paper!

It’s the fun little details like these book ends that give a room huge personality. I cannot wait to show you the playroom makeover room reveal soon!

Inexpensive Framed Giraffe Kids Art

I have another fun piece of artwork from our kid’s playroom makeover to share with you today! This Framed Giraffe Kids Art was created simply with a dollar store frame and some paper. It adds a whimsical touch to the room and was very inexpensive to make!

Inexpensive Framed Giraffe Kids Art by Love Grows Wild
I hope you’re not tired of my playroom projects yet. It’s been so much fun adding bright splashes of color to the kid’s space, since the rest of my house is totally decorated in neutrals! 
I recently added white shelves in our playroom over the toy storage bins, and I wanted some inexpensive artwork to help fill up the shelf space. I got the idea for this sweet giraffe art from NanaCompany and decided to recreate it with scrapbook paper instead of fabric!

Inexpensive Framed Giraffe Kids Art by Love Grows Wild
I simply cut a giraffe silhouette from some blue polka dot scrapbook paper and glued it to a piece of white card stock. If you’re not the best free-hand drawer (like me!), you can find lots of giraffe shapes on Google Images!
To bump up the cuteness factor, I wrote a sweet message from Mr. Giraffe in a pretty cursive font with a black fine tip Sharpie. 
Inexpensive Framed Giraffe Kids Art by Love Grows Wild
I found a silver 8 x 10 frame from The Dollar Tree (gosh, I love that store!) and framed my little giraffe inside.

Super cute new art for our playroom makeover for a grand total of $1 = Awesome! 
Wouldn’t this be adorable in a baby’s nursery?

How to Create a Record Wall

Our playroom makeover is coming along nicely, and I’m having so much fun coming up with unique art to complete the space! If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a sneak peak of today’s project while I was speed shopping through a 3 story antique warehouse with a hungry 3 year old in tow! Yikes!
My sweet little shopping trooper and I were on a hunt for some old records I spotted last time we were in the store. The bright color labels on the records immediately caught my eye, and I thought they would be so fun to hang in a grouping on their wall! So today I’m sharing with you how I created a Record Wall in their playroom:
How to Create a Record Wall
I picked up sixteen records from the antique store for about 50 cents each. I don’t know if that was a rip off or a steal, but I thought $8 for a big art display wasn’t a bad price! I tried to pick a few records in each color to add the most impact on the wall.
How to Create a Record Wall

After gently cleaning the dust off the records, I laid them out on a table to visualize where I wanted each color to go. I decided to put them in a square with four rows of four records, but you could go crazy with the shape or color pattern of your records!

How to Create a Record Wall

After contemplating how to best hang the records on the wall, I found this Scotch Permanent Mounting Tape at Hobby Lobby and thought it would be perfect!

You can find a similar mounting tape here:Scotch Permanent Mounting Tape

How to Create a Record Wall

I just cut 2″ pieces of tape to use on the top and bottom of the records, peeled off the backing and stuck them on the wall! It couldn’t be easier and I didn’t have to make a single nail hole! I just love those kind of projects : )

How to Create a Record Wall
I added the records to a little reading corner in the boy’s playroom, and here is the space before:

Don’t those records look awesome up on the wall? All those circles just make me smile : )
So fun for a playroom!

My boys said, “What on Earth are those things on our wall? Are they like CDs?”
Oh, do they have a way of making me feel old!

I added a green rug and an old rocking chair to make their reading corner nice and cozy. I’d love to paint the bookcase and chair someday, but for now I added a pillow I made using extra fabric from their curtain valances.

The record wall was such an easy project and added a ton of personality to the space! I’ve got a few more projects up my sleeve before I’m ready to show you the room reveal, so stay tuned!

Baking Sheet Magnet Boards

 Hey friends! Today I have a SUPER fun project from our playroom makeover that is part organization, part wall decor, and part activity for the kids. Sound interesting??

I also have a fun little game for us to play! Ok here it goes:

Raise your hand if you have kids.

Now raise your hand if your refrigerator looks like this:

I love my boys dearly, and for the most part, I don’t mind when their stuff takes over the house. But sometimes I just want a space to myself that is clean and organized and not cluttered with toys!  
I’ve had these letter magnets on my refrigerator for the past 5 years, and now that we’re getting the playroom all set up nice for the boys, I thought it was time for the magnets to find a new home in the playroom. 
The problem was that I didn’t have anything magnetic for them to go on in the playroom. After some brainstorming and trip to the dollar store, this is what I came up with:
Yes, baking sheets! I grabbed two baking sheets from The Dollar Tree and arranged the magnets by type. One for our farm animals:
And one for our alphabet letters:

I thought about adding some paper or fabric to the inside of the baking sheet, but since the magnets themselves are so colorful, I didn’t want them to look too busy. So I opted for decorating the ends of the baking sheets with some fun striped washi tape. It doesn’t get any easier than tearing a piece of tape off the roll and sticking it onto the pan. I just used some scissors to trim the overhang!

The last piece of the puzzle was figuring out how to attach them to the wall. I used Command Picture Hanging Strips, which were so simple to use and held the magnet boards in place perfectly.

You can find where I purchased them here: 3M Command Large Picture Hanging Strips, 4/pk, White (Google Affiliate Ad)

All you have to do is push two of the strips together to connect them, peel off one of the backings, and stick them onto the back of the magnet boards. I used two per board.

Then you peel off the other backing and stick the magnet board wherever you’d like on the wall. 
Pretty simple, right? I always love when I can avoid putting another nail hole in our walls! 
I hung them low enough for my 3 year old to reach, and he’s been having a blast playing with them! And Mommy is very happy to have her clean refrigerator back : )
