welcome to my dining room. i mean playroom. about a year ago, i decided to turn my dining room into a playroom. yes, we have a playroom in the basement but no one ever wanted to be down there. and, of course, i wasn’t able to always go sit down there with the little ones. so, one day, it dawned on me, why not, for a few years, turn the dining room into a playroom? we didn’t use the dining room, that often, and we really didn’t have to make any major changes. and the great thing about it is, that when the time comes to turn it back, there won’t be much to it.
to change things, we gave the room some fresh paint, took the dishes out of the hutch and exchanged them for toys, hung a few shelves and let the same fancy chandelier do its thing and shine some magic into the space.
you can shop the look of this room right here! but here is a list of some of the resources :
paint / top half of the room = winter wheat by benjamin moore. bottom half of the room = filmy green by sherwin willimas.
hutch/ old piece that my mom bought at ace hardware, of all places
