I am so excited that I actually have something to post for ...

Though my room will not be a fraction as good as most of the gorgeous ones people post up it will still be fun to show everyone the new playroom we have in the house.

Since I was beginning to keep two kids besides my own two and our house STILL hasn't sold, we had to get rid of our guest room :( because we were in need of somewhere to put the toy overflow. I would love to have painted the walls but I am not painting because I will want to paint my new house WHEN we get one (positive thinking) Anyway enough rambling. Here we go!

I did a lot for this conversion because most of it we already had but I'll share prices for both to be fair :)

* valance- four placemats from TJ Maxx that came in a set for $5.00.
* bookshelf- Target (5 years ago) for ~ $30.00
* dog bed/reading pillow- $22.00 from TJ Maxx
* baskets- World Market $24.00 each

* futon- matress king (5 years ago) ~ $200
* green table runner- TJ Maxx $5.00
* polka dot sham- TJ Maxx $7.00
*2 small pillows- TJ Maxx $7.00 each
*picture frames- Hobby Lobby 50% off $32.00 for 4
*artwork- watercolors by Micah plus scrapbook paper ~$1.00 worth of supplies

*bookshelf- made by my awesome husband. supplies ~$50.00
*fabric cubes- Target $6.50 each so $32.00

  1. I love the artwork that Micah did. So cute and meaningful too! That's genius to use the placemats and table runner in a different way. Very creative!

  2. LOVE the napkins/valance...adorable!!! It looks like a room any child would want to play in. The futon looks great too. :) I love your colors. Visiting from The Nester's party. :)

  3. It looks so awesome! Maybe I will get inspired to actually finish Braden's playroom. I just need to get motivated to finish the art for the walls and hang it up.

    You did such a great job!

  4. Very cute...I bet your little guy LOVES it. I'm in the process of finishing up my play room too.

  5. Cute! We're trying to sell so we can have a place for all our toys too.. It's rediculous! :)

    It looks great, love the window treatment!

  6. this playroom is so cute. love the green accents.

  7. I saw those same place mats at TJ Maxx and was trying to figure out what I could do with them in my daughter's room since they would match.

    What a great idea!
