Home Tour: Part 5, The Playroom

So I’ve been giving an online tour of our new home, but I’ve been bouncing around from room to room, with no particular order.  Why?  I dunno.  Mainly because I don’t have the boys’ rooms finished yet, and our living room still has baby furniture in it, so I wouldn’t exactly call those rooms “Pin” worthy.  Haha!

So… here we go with “Part 5, The Playroom.”

If you’ve missed the other rooms on the tour so far, you can see those here:

Part 1: “The Exterior”       Part 2: “The Master Bedroom”       Part 3: “The Master Bath”       Part 4: “The Kitchen

The Playroom

I was so tired of seeing toy after toy, scattered all around our living room on a daily basis, that I told my husband, “When we build the new house, we GOTTA have an area where those toys can stay in one place, all of the time, because if I step on one more train, I’m going to go batty.”

So the hubs pulled through!

Our finished basement is where we decided the playroom should have a home.  We planned it to where it would be in an open area, next to the living area in the basement.  This way, when our adult friends bring their kiddos over, we can sit in the living area, and overlook the playroom where our kiddos are playing.  The kids can have their own space, and we adults can have our own space, but still be in the same room so we can make sure one kid doesn’t put one in a “choke hold,” or an “arm bar.”  {Sorry, that’s the UFC coming out in me.}

I adore the white and gray chevron ottomans, that I found at Kohls.  Kids can throw them around, wrestle with them, and they serve as another place to sit when we have a large group over.  These are a must for any playroom!

We just now got our “easel” out of storage, and you would have thought it was Christmas.  My oldest little guy was so excited!  This easel has a dry erase board, and a chalk board on the reverse side, so he can draw and color on it, as well as practice his words with his letter magnets.  I do love “all-in-one” toys.

Alright my friends.  If you listen to ANYTHING I say, please please please, listen to me when I say this…

Our train table has been the BEST, I mean, BEST purchase we have ever made for our playroom.  My oldest is OBSESSED with trains, and this train table has provided hours and hours of entertainment.  He will go downstairs, and be down there for hours in a day, playing with this.  He’s still too young to put the tracks together any way he wants, so I do spend some time rebuilding the track for him when he “takes it apart,” but it is so worth it!

We bought ours at Toys R Us, for his birthday, and it was money WELL spent! When we go on vacation, by day 2 he’s begging to get home to play with his train table.

I gotta give a “shout out” to a friend of mine for this toy shelf organizer.  I posted on Facebook one day that I was looking for used toys and playroom items.  She mentioned that she had this toy organizer, and I jumped on it.  It works perfect for all of those small toy items that are always strung out everywhere!

But do you seriously believe it always looks this clean and organized?  If so, I have some oceanfront property in Arizona that I want to sell to you. 😉

I scored this little canvas wall art collection at Home Goods, and knew it would go perfect in a playroom!  Plus, it’s a train, and well we know how my son feels about trains.

I think showcasing a child’s art is so important.  I want my kiddos to know that I LOVE seeing what they made for their mommy and daddy.  But my fridge can only hold so much.  So, the art gallery was born.  🙂

I just bought mini clothes pins, grabbed some bakers twine & ribbon, and attached it to the wall using command strips.  {P.S. Command Strips are the bomb.  Do people still say that?}

This adorable rocking horse was my husbands when he was little.  My brother in law, refinished it, and made it look like new again, and gave it to us as a gift.  So sweet, and the kids love it!

We JUST got this over the door basketball goal for Christmas from family!  I LOVE this idea.  I was thinking of getting a basketball goal for the boys, but was looking at one that sits on the floor, but so glad I didn’t!  This way it saves floor space, and it works awesome!

The little brown table and chairs is one of my favorite items in the playroom.  The kids can do art projects, or have a picnic at this little set, and it’s fantastic.  It’s sooo cute too!  I love miniature furniture that looks like “Mommy and Daddy’s” furniture.

I’m currently working on the “man cave,” for the playroom.  It will have a reading area with more miniature furniture, and it will be the ultimate hiding spot for the kiddos.

There’s our playroom!  Thanks for coming by and checking it out!

  1. The artwork is adorable! How perfect are those train photos!

      Thank you! I switch out that artwork every once in a while! That’s the beauty of mini clothespins, instead of a permanent adhesive or something! Thanks so much for coming by!

  2. Bianca Snyder says:

    Do you have the same paint color all through the house? I love the grey walls and that is the look we are going for. I’m new to all of this so I was wondering what brand and shade(s) you used?

    1. Jessica says:

      Hi!!! Thank you for dropping by! We do! We like having the same color throughout the house, for resale purposes, and it’s easier to decorate with. 🙂 We purchased our paint at Sherwin Williams, and I believe it is “pavestone!” I hope that helps!
