Ava’s playroom is nearly complete! Yesterday, I shared with you the transformation of a table I added to her playroom. Today, I am excited to show you the wall transformation, too! As I mentioned yesterday, her playroom is located in what should be a dining room – but makes an excellent and visible playroom as it is visible in the kitchen and den. It’s a fairly wide-open space with ceilings as tall as our two-story house. While the table was an amazing addition, the walls were really bare and very boring. I was struggling with what to put on such a large, tall wall.
I totally forgot to take a before picture, but here is one I snagged from my Instagram stories:
Also, I still absolutely hate the “boob” lamps and we are ordering some new ones on Amazon very soon!
To decorate this wall, I started searching Pinterest and found and amazing DIY project and decor inspiration from Thrifty Decor Chick. She has an amazing blog and I encourage you to check her out! From this blog, I was inspired to create two large, hanging shelves and decorate it with a variety of cute decor. I’m not going to walk you through how to do these shelves but I will be linking her tutorial below:
Once we got the shelves up, it already looked so much better and blended in with our current playroom furniture! Take a peek:
For the table and the shelves, I used Varathane’s Dark Walnut Wood stain that you can find on Amazon:
After I added the shelves to the wall, I went to Michael’s and Target and found some super cute decor for the shelves because they were having a HUGE sale! I brought these items home and absolutely love how the wall turned out:
Below, you will find the links to the items above and/or comparable items on Amazon if I was not able to find it on their website:
Good news, bad news. The signs I bought were in the dollar section at the front of the store for only $3! Unfortunately, I cannot find them on their website. However, I found some similar ones that I linked above. Sorry, guys!
One of the most important thing I wanted for her wall decor was a “PLAY” sign. I love these letters that I found at Michaels because they are lightweight and simple!
While I wasn’t able to find the same ones I purchased, these are very similar AND cheaper!
I love this sign and it’s on sale! Grab it while its still available!
Again, super cute sign and you can’t beat the price!
I bought two 8×10 and two 5×7 frames for the shelves. I ordered some photos from Walgreens and it gave the wall a personalized touch!
I hope you enjoyed this quick post on our playroom decor – feel free to share your ideas and thoughts in the comments below!
