Playroom Update

I had a blogging friend ask me if she had missed the reveal of the playroom yesterday.
I reassured  her that she had not missed anything yet. I am still working on the final phase.

Here is what is left to do or to decide on:
  1. Paint for the letter “P”, yes dear friends the “P” still has not been painted.
  2. Molding to go around the window.
  3. Hang curtain.
  4. Caulk and touch-up paint.
  5. Add something to the baskets (it’s a secret)
  6. Tweak shelves.
  7. Visit the idea of an area rug after everything is in place.
  8. Look at possibilities for one more element for the walls.
  9. Fine one more set of storage bins for the shelves.

I had purchased dark turquoise pails for toy storage but they just did not look right to me. I know that they looked good, but they just were not quite right. You know how something just feels off and you can’t quite put your finger on it. That is how the pails were sitting with me, just off. I am now experimenting with different colors and types of storage bins.

I can only show you this much because I don’t want to reveal too much right now. You can see they actually look good, but when I looked into the room that is all I saw, not all the other  elements that are marrying well to each other.

Below is an image of the fabrics, paint and the turquoise pails just to give you the rest of the puzzle pieces. The wall color is Lemon Grass by Martha Stewart.

So my dear readers that is my update on where we are at as of today in the playroom. I am looking on-line today for some storage options, wish me luck!!!

More more more!!! I can't wait. Such a great color combination. And yes! I know all too well about something being "off" and having to change. I have the same polka dot curtains picked out for my son's room! :)

I like the pails, but I'm sure you'll find just the right thing. Every time I get a glimpse of your fun fabric combinations, I get more excited about this playroom. Can't wait to see the final reveal.


You are just teasing us to death here.....I know it is going to be worth the wait though.

Can't wait to see. I know it will be adorable. I've got to get better at shopping online. I just never have very good luck. Do you have any tips? That just might be an idea for a post for you. Have a great weekend. Mona said...

Hur.ry.up! Lol! You are such the temptress!!

Looks like you're getting close. I love the green - my dining room is a slightly more yellow Martha color which I also love - from the Fine Paints of Europe line. Looking forward to seeing the finished space!!

It is really coming along nicely. I love a project, but sometimes it takes forever to get it done. Can't wait to see the big reveal.

The fabrics in this room are just divine. You have some lucky grandkids! Is that navy/white Ikea fabric available online? I couldn't find it. It looks very similar to a schumacher fabric. Hope you are having a great weekend.
