plans for the kid’s playroom

I’m so excited for this room!  I have some really fun ideas for our downstairs playroom and can’t wait for it to be finished.  I’m trying to use a lot of items we already have, as well as DIY’ing a bunch of things, so stay posted for those.

Our basement is finished, however, it’s basically a large room, semi-divided into two spaces.  We had planned on finishing up the one side and turning it into a guest room, however, we ended up leaving it as one large space.  We will be turning the one side into another living room/movie room, plus making space for an office area and then the other side will be the kid’s playroom.

For the kid’s area, I want it to be fun and bright, while keeping it cozy and really organized.  I know how quickly toys/art supplies/etc can get out of hand haha, and I’m a big believer in everything having a spot to be put away.  That and labels.

We picked up a huge Ikea kallax cube shelf, and it will house all the kid’s toys, art supplies and office supplies.  So that’s currently here and I’ve jammed a bunch of items in there for now.  I have a cool diy idea for those fabric bins and I’m so excited to get started on that.  The wicker bins are from Ikea and they might get a coat of white paint.  Then it will be organizing the toys and putting everything away.  I love this cube shelf though.  There are SO. MANY. CUBES.

^sorry about the picture quality, I just quickly snapped these in the evening

The little reading/craft nook I’m making will go here.  I’m thinking lots of fun pillows, some shelving and a little table and stools.  I also would love to string a fun pendant but my husband might need some convincing with that one.  I plan on making some pretty garlands and have already made a little teepee, but I’m not totally happy with how it turned out, so I’ll be working on that a bit more.  I can’t wait to share the progress on this room and if you follow me on instagram, I share little snippets on my insta-stories.

I’ll be sharing my progress in this room as well as the diy’s that I’m doing and I can’t wait to see how it turns out 🙂
