Home Tour - Play Room

Posted by on

(aka our previous dining room)

Of course I would rather have had an awesome chandelier rather than a ceiling fan but I lost that battle with my husband.  Whats with boys and their ceiling fans?  Nonetheless, the kids love it so I'm happy.  Eventually when the kids are older we'll turn it back into a dining room.  And just so you don't think I'm one of those moms who only allows "pretty" toys in their house, here is what didn't make the shot including the Thomas balloon that won't die (going on 9 weeks now)...

and we're back.

And so you can see how it's changed, here is a picture of the room when we bought the house...

  1. Poufs from BranchandBirdie
  2. Toy storage from Land of Nod
  3. Rug from Jill Rosenwald
  4. Clock from CB2 (I painted the pendulum white)
  5. Vintage blocks from Magpie Lovely
  6. Fabric letters from anthropologie
  7. All wall art I design, printed and framed
  8. Pillows I made from spoonflower fabric I designed
  9. Kids table was an amazing hand me down
  10. Toy box from Target

  • Super cute, Stacey! The blocks are made by a girl I went to high school with through Etsy! I just designed a new block theme for her and can’t wait to see them when she reopens her store this fall. Sorry to miss you in Chi! Sounds like you guys are going on an amazing trip!
