Under The Stairs Playroom Update

Do you remember this space???



Yep . . . it’s been about a year now that I’ve been ignoring this sad space. I had so many other things happening around this CRAZY house that it ended up on the bottom of the list! 

I FINALLY got the motivation to GET IT DONE!!! 
And I am sooo Happy I did; my kids LOVE the fun new playroom.

Here is the NEW Playroom/Closet :)



Love this view from the outside looking in..


My most FAVORITE element in the room has to be the bead board ceiling! I LOVE how it turned out, and once again Brett did a GREAT job! In all honesty, I was surprised that I found yet another room to add trim too. Will this obsession ever end?? hehe



I've been on the hunt for a perfect rug to finish off the room. And I think I might have found it at IKEA
Now, If I could just find the time to make the LONG drive to Utah...Ugh! 

Along the way I picked up a few Large Sabrina Baskets from 
Pottery Barn Kids a month or so ago when they were 15% off and Free shipping. SCORE :)


I was a bit worried when I first saw the basket size, but soon after was pleasantly surprised by how much stuff they really do hold! 

I found the tree decal on Etsy! I was able to design the color of the tree and also the pattern of each leaf. 
I really LOVE how it turned out.


The blue paint color I ended up using is called 
"Heaven on Earth" from Benjamin Moore.
I first saw the color painted in the Salt Lake Pottery Barn Kids store and fell in LOVE!!!


There are a few more things I want to add to the space before I feel like it's 100% complete. Like, adding a few more baskets, the rug and also labeling each basket.Hopefully labels will come in handy when the kids are in charge of clean up! HAPPY DAY :) 
I also would LOVE to find a Big Trunk to replace my green tote bags in the back of the closet, for all the MANY dress-ups we have! 
I'll be keeping my eye out for that!

What a fun space for your kiddos!! I love how it all turned out. I would have never thought to put the beadboard on the cieling, but it looks great. It really gives a finished feeling to the space.

Your red barn there is one of my favorite things about your house! So, soooo cute. It looks adorable in there, and the rug looks like a great fun and festive addition! Wouldn't it be great if I.F. had an IKEA?!

Are the kids really able to play in there? I have a similar space, but I'd be worried as I have two boys, ages 4 and 6 that are very active!
