Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.
Our home is forever evolving into our personal home style and what brings us joy. That even means rooms that have already received a makeover, just might be revisited again. That’s exactly what is happening with our playroom. It was the first room we focused on when we moved in three years ago. Needless to say, I’m itching to get my hands on it for an update.
Here’s what it looked like when we moved in and then what it currently looks like:
The current design and look of the playroom is not bad at all. We have thoroughly enjoyed it the past three years. But my main goal with this revamp is to make it functional and more of my toddler’s fun personality. Currently I feel like it’s a place to store away all the toys versus being a space that can actually be used to its fullest potential. Here’s what I’m planning for the playroom when it comes to the decor, design elements and my favorite part: the paint colors.
Some of the current decor will be staying, but a lot of it will be going as we DIY our way through the playroom design. One of the biggest changes you’re going to see in the space will be the use of the Benjamin Moore paint colors. I picked a few of Benjamin Moore’s 2020 Trending Colors along with a few others mixed in. The colors we’ll be using are Thunder, White Heron, Cushing Green, Warmed Cognac and Black Beauty.
I’ll be heading to Ace Hardware this week to pick these paint colors up to get started. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am!
