You may have read my previous post about the playroom being one of my favourite rooms in our house (mainly as I can shut the door on the various bits of tat that litter it…) but over Christmas we decided to spruce it up and actually make it into a room that’s designed for the kids as opposed to just a room with kids bits inside.
I started the playroom transformation with a good post-Christmas declutter; this meant that we said a sad farewell to big boxes of Duplo, puzzles and the wooden dolls house which were all taking up a lot of floor space and were never played with.
After a quick IKEA click and collect trip to get some more Lekman boxes for our Kallax units, a couple of floating shelves and a little shelf unit for books we were pretty much set. I also decided I wanted to get a couple of tables for the kids to sit at and colour, or for them to act out scenes with their LOL dolls/farm animals etc, without them laying on the floor to do it. We opted for the Lack coffee table and just didn’t add the middle section when building them!
Once we’d added the extra bits in, we were pleased but the room still felt unfinished. Stuart, all credit to him, is the design eye in our relationship and off he popped to B&Q to get some frog tape and a pot of neutral colour paint. He marked up the curved end of the room and set to work…
