Kids’ Playroom Reveal

Last Updated on March 3, 2022

Oh happy day, friends!  It's REVEAL day.  These are my favorite days!  Today I am going to show you the kids' playroom that we created out of a BORING and BEIGE box of a room.  It's full of playroom decor and playroom storage ideas that are sure to inspire you.  PS- There's a complete source list to the items in the room and paint colors at the end of this post :)

Let's start by reviewing what this room looked like when we moved in, shall we?  Only two words come to mind…BORING and DEPRESSING.  It was meant to be a formal room, but we are not a formal family in need of a fancy room :)  When we viewed the house, I knew this room would be perfect for our kids' playroom.  It has FABULOUSLY large casement windows and tons of wonderful natural light, which is ideal for a playroom.  I also love that it has glass french doors that open to our family room.

Phase 1 of the kids' playroom makeover consisted of painting the walls a gorgeous blue color.  We also painted the trim a true white, a nice change from the dated taupe/beige color that it was previously.  Joe also changed all of the electrical outlets and light switches from almond to white–it's shocking what a difference such a small change can make.  I painted the wall to the right of the french doors with magnetic primer and then with a chalkboard top coat, which our twin girls' love.  DISCLAIMER: If I had it to do over again, I would have skipped the magnetic primer.  It was messy and can barely hold a magnetic letter.  Definitely not worth the time or effort, but it was a good idea in theory.

Phase 2 consisted of tearing out the nasty carpet and replaced it with the MOST GORGEOUS hand-scraped laminate (yep, laminate) floors I have ever seen.  You can read all about the laminate floors we chose and WHY we chose laminate floors for our home here.

Phase 3 included building DIY pipe bookshelves and desks, which you can read all about here.  Most recently, we moved the old rug from our family room and loveseat that we used in the girls' nursery when they were babies into the space.  We also added can lights to the room, since the lighting was woefully inadequate (the tutorial for how we did that will be on Remodelaholic soon)!

Enough talking!  Who's ready for some photos????  Here you go!

  1. Where did you find the wall lamps? I’m looking to do these instead of lamps in our play room. Thanks!

  2. Wow! This is such a fantastic room for your kiddos to play and be creative in! I love it all, but the rack of dress up clothes is so precious… :) Beautiful job!

  3. Those dark laminate floors are beautiful, and hard to tell they are laminate. We are also going with laminate in our house because of our dogs, not the kids because our kids are grown now. My absolutely favorite part of the room are the hanging dress up outfits! Not only are they colorful and decorative, but just so adorable hanging there. I know your girls will enjoy this room for years.
