With my daughters getting older is was time to update the playroom. It was time to retire the Dr. Seuss wall art and replace it with something a little older. Wanted the playroom to be girly and glamorous with bright colors and a fun atmosphere. Going to walk you through each step of the transformation and how I made the playroom not only more beautiful but more functional as well!

Kid Art Wall Shelf
What is more cheery, colorful, and playful than kids artwork? Kid’s artwork is a great way to inspire imaginative play, fun, and creativity! What better place to display kid’s artwork than the playroom! I was able to create this entire look for less than $60 dollars! Here is more details on how to get this look in my video here. I purchased the shelves from IKEA and the frames from Walmart.
Wall Art Quotes
I was able to reuse the frames that I had in this room previously by spray painting them this fun aqua/teal color. Decided to replace the Dr. Seuss with some more age appropriate quotes from women authors on the topic of sisters! Included a quote from Little Women and Charlotte Bronte. HandMade by LisaJ was able to do the beautiful gold lettering for me which worked perfect with the gold accents I have throughout the room to create a glamorous vibe! Here is a video on the full story of the transformation.
Spray Paint Fun
To get the aqua/teal coloring to match perfectly throughout the room, I spray painted both the frames and the lamp in the same aqua/teal color that matches the storage bins. Love the combination of pink and aqua/teal to create a fun and cheery space!
One of the most important component to a playroom is the toy storage!!! I love how deep and wide the Better Homes and Gardens Fabric Cube Storage Bins are, large enough to store stuffed animals, Barbies, and the lot. The Better Homes and Gardens 9 Cube Storage Organizerr is also taller than I expected so it takes up less space in the room but provides a large amount of storage capacity. I went with a fun pink and teal color combo as I am redoing the playroom in these colors but they have many different color options to chose from for both the organizer and the bins. Amazed at how much toy storage this solution provided!!
Wanted to create a cozy space in the playroom for tea parties, sleepovers, and make believe! This teepee is taller and wider than most so that even mom can join a tea party or two! It has a cute little window with pockets underneath that I may make into window boxes and great tie back doors. To give it a cozy feel and go with the aqua and pink color scheme of the playroom I added a teal faux fur rug. I added this heart garland to create an inviting and cheery entrance to the tent. I purchased two heart garland strands and they were super easy to hang from the top poles of the teepee. Here is a link to a similar heart garland strand.
The hoop wreaths on either side of the Wall Art Quote wall really make a statement and give the room it’s girly vibe.
Hoop wreaths are super simple to make! All you need is a hoop ring, greenery, floral tape, and floral wire. You need to cut the greenery into about 6 inch bunches. I like to use a variety of greenery to create visual interest! You adhere each piece of greenery to the hoop ring using floral tape or floral wire at the base of the greenery. You place the next piece of greenery over the base of the previous piece and work your way around the hoop ring. Here is a video I created that also walks you through the process.
Looking for some different configurations for your space? I walk you through 4 configuration options for hanging your hoop wreath here.
Want to buy some hoop wreaths instead of make them to achieve this look? The White Rose Hoop Wreath Set of three wreaths would be a great option. I would order two sets and hang three wreaths on either side. Looking for some other hoop wreath options? Check out the full story here.
We don’t have super tall ceilings in the playroom but I want to add some glam with the light fixture so I selected a flush mount chandelier with lots of shimmering crystals. It adds a lot of light and sparkle into the room and creates the glamorous vibe I was trying to achieve.
I had so much fun creating this cheery and fun space for the girls! Love all the bright colors and glamorous touches that have transformed this space into a place that inspires imaginative play, fun, and creativity!
