My dear friend Carly recently redid her playroom and turned it into a beautiful modern farmhouse space. Her goal was a beautiful, well organized space that felt bright and welcoming. She most definitely accomplished that goal! I encouraged her to bring a lot of white and neutrals into the space to balance out their beautiful dark wood floors. I wish I had a before picture because the space is drastically different now. She did such a great job at creating a beautiful space that is still kid friendly and functional!
The biggest challenge in this space was finding a neutral map that was big enough for the large wall. The first attempt was mounting a real map to the DIY wooden frame. The map bubbled up and wasn’t cooperating. I’m actually glad that it didn’t work, because the second map fit the space so much better! I love the black and white, modern look of the map poster. A modern farmhouse sconce was installed right above the map.
The Don’t Grow Up sign and arrows were found at Hobby Lobby. The giraffe art was spotted at Home Goods. The wall mounted book rack, which has been on my wish list for a year now, came from Birch Lane. The locker storage bench was purchased at Marshall’s. My favorite part of pulling together a room is the hunt for all the pieces. I love visiting my favorite stores and searching for coordinating pieces that will pull my room together.
One of my favorite things about the room is the kid size teepee, found at Target on clearance! The kids regularly hang out in the teepee to read books or play games. Add a few throw pillows, blankets and a rug to the teepee area to make it extra cozy. The wooden tick tac toe game came from a local vintage market, but I’ve seen something similar at Kirkland’s or you could even attempt making your own.
On the left side of the room, you can find a chalkboard and frames with twine for hanging up kid made artwork. Here’s a little chalkboard tip from my friend: ditch the chalk and go for chalk markers for less mess! In the middle of the room is a small table for the kids to sit and do homework or create more masterpieces to hang. I’m so inspired by this space and can’t wait to start working on my own playroom!
