A playroom for Kyler

4 Nov

I am happy to introduce Kyler’s new playroom!

We have been hard at work on this project for the past few months and it’s finally done! Kyler may be little but her toys were starting to take up a lot of room so we decided it was time to convert the upstairs loft into a playroom for her.

When we moved in, it was a big blank room.

We weren’t sure what to do with it so we threw all of our old family room furniture and decor in there. It looked good but we never used it!

When I pictured a kid’s playroom I immediately thought of bright, fun colors and lots of em’! I started looking around for ideas online and found a lot of great things. A friend recommended that I do one of those melted crayon art pieces that are all over Pinterest and I thought it would be fun and perfect for her room! It all started from there!

The room is definitely more suited for an older child but I wanted to create a space that she could grow into and use for many years to come.

Thank you so much to everyone that helped me with this (Mom, Kendra, Jenny) but mainly to my talented hubby Chris and my talented dad! They did a great job making the furniture!

Well, what do you think?

Kyler’s Nursery

19 Mar

So one of the first things I looked forward to when I found out I was pregnant was decorating a nursery (other than meeting her of couse!) I looked around casually but really didn’t start the search until I knew she was going to be a girl. I knew I didn’t want anything too themey and something that was fun, bright, and different. After searching all over the internet, I decided to have my own bedding made through a lady I found on Etsy. Somewhere in the process, I decided I wanted Coral and Teal bedding with wainscotting on the walls. I also decided to go with owls to make her room fun. It took a good month of picking out fabric online, ordering samples, seeing it in person, not liking it and ordering new samples, and bugging Jenny on different designs to come up with the one we ended up getting. It arrived 2 days before Kyler was born and I love it!

We added wainscotting to the room (thanks Chris and Hal!) and I started picking up decorative items that were teal, coral, or white along the way. I started making owl pictures with the circut for her wall. Of course I had help- thanks Marisa, Marissa and Ms. Atwell! Now that it is finally put together, I am really happy on how it turned out!

 

I just want to thank my parents, Jenny, Marisa, Marissa, Ms. Atwell, Hal and of course Chris for helping me with the nursery!
