Playroom Updates

We built our home over 2 years ago.  The upstairs playroom/bonus room, has for the most part, been unfinished. The kids use it to watch TV and movies, play video games and just play.  It has evolved and the air hockey table is gone, the play kitchen, and plastic furniture are no longer part of the decor.  Above is the before photo, just as J started painting.  The walls are now a gray color from Sherwin-Williams.  I'm not sure of the name, but will check on it.  We also used a matte finish, which is so nice and it wipes clean easily.  Above shows the play area. 
 Our first purchase was the Ektorp love seat with chaise from IKEA.  We love it and I love the color!
(The boxes in the back corner are filled with photos, china, and memorabilia....dh is working on a cabinet to hide that clutter and finally get it unpacked...will share photos when it is done!)
A 9-cube organizer we had purchased when we first moved in was organized and moved against the back wall behind the couch.  The lamp and frame are new from Target. 


This is a closer view of the drapery fabric.   

Under the drapes is a white roman shade, which is hard to see with the light.  The kids really said the room feels much cozier now and they want to spend time there.  I'm still on the look out for pillows and a throw, along with a few other accessories.  As soon as I get some art on the walls, I will share photos of that.  I hope to get a flat screen TV sometime soon, too.
~peace and blessings~

Lisa, I love the look of the playroom. The furniture is great and I really like the black and white print of the curtains and pillow.

I just got a white 9 cube thing on Friday night for craft room. Just started filling it today.

Nice area for the kidsd to have!

Nice decoration! Love, love the red couch and with the black and white curtains it looks great. Feels like a home.. not a house :)
