Rock Room Design Plans

Progress is being made in terms of design plans for the Kids Playroom/Rock Room!

Here is a fun reminder of what it currently looks like.

Project declutter is underway! I don't know why, but I always get anxiety when I think about sending all of my bags of unwanted things to Arc or Goodwill.  I picture my stuff being shoved in a corner or smushed on a bulging clothing rack and often wonder if it will ever end up in a good home.  I googled some other places to send my stuff and found a great organization that takes gently used items for Vietnam Veterans.  They even have a pick up service for free! If you are interested - check them out here!

This past weekend I met up with my talented friend, Pat, who helped me build this awesome cubby storage system for the playroom. I can't wait to bring it home and start filling it with toys!  I am thinking about either white washing this piece or just painting it white. 

Side note: Pat has been building awesome furniture and really fun cutting boards and is starting to build an Etsy page to sell his products.  Check out his PSM Woodworks page as he begins to add his products to sell!

Thomas is always down for a DIY project and stopped by to help for a little while.

Because this is a kids playroom I really want to brighten it up and bring in some fun colors.  Here are a few products I have been perusing to add to the space:


I'm thinking about adding a pop of color with the bins I purchase for the cubby unit.


With a traverse rod system, you have to buy a specific type of curtain that can attach to the rod. This one from Bed Bath and Beyond is reasonably priced and  would really brighten up a room!


For the blank wall behind the TV, I would love to put together some sort of gallery wall of the kids photos.  I'm thinking a few blown up photos would look great. Here is a great inspiration image:


What do you think about my plans so far?  

This week I need to get crackin' on painting the trim and the new storage piece (yippee!).  Thanks for checking in!
