A Playroom Built For All

How to build the perfect playroom. Oh Happy Play, a Florida Motherhood blogger shares an in depth look at the playroom she built for her girls!

The wait is over and I am finally ready to show you the girls playroom! I don’t have to tell any mom that an influx of toys is just par for the course when it comes to having children, you all know that already. But what I can say is that organizing them and displaying them in such a way that toys don’t get forgotten about can be fun and easy! This room is truly a playroom built for all!

When we first built our house this room was DEFINITELY going to be our home gym. Then came along our first daughter. This room slowly transitioned from gym, to home office, to guest room + play area + home office until I finally threw in the towel, said sorry to our guests and made this area 100% the girls playroom paradise!

Let me walk you through it now and give you a few must haves along the way:

  1. Storage, storage and more storage! Find your local IKEA and go get some storage. Their pieces are totally kid friendly and perfect for this type of use. I spruced up some of the Ikea pieces with some storage bins from Target’s new pillowfort collection and I think it adds a little more elements to the room!How to build the perfect playroom.

  2. Reading area and books. We have SO many books. It was important to me to make a space that was inviting and made anyone want to curl up and grab a book. I think this cuddler from ZGallerie and this Canopy from Land of Nod does just that! Along side is another storage shelf from Ikea holding a handful of our children’s book collection.Playroom for girls Playroom for girls
  3. Imaginative Play: I try to encourage my girls to have some independent playtime in the mornings before breakfast (not going to lie, mama needs her coffee). It’s good for them and it’s good for me. This area of their playroom does just that. It’s colorful and inviting and they can truly use their imagination. Here we have a KidKraft kitchen set as well as some of their most played with toys like the playfood that goes along with the kitchen, her Disney character dolls and all of her “Little People by Fisher Price” toys. The floor in this area is padded by an adorable playmat I found at Diapers.com. This whole area is a favorite of mine and I love how it came out!Girls RoomHow to build the perfect playroom.

  4. Wall Décor: I wanted some personalized pieces in the room and I love how these name banners by Two Chihuahuas turned out as well as the tassle from Glamfete! My favorite artwork in the room is this sign by Home Spun Signs. This quote is perfect for two young girls and it really adds to the room. It was almost hard to choose which piece of theirs to order because as you can see here they have an AMAZING collection!!Toddler Room Decor How to build the perfect playroom.

  5. Learning Area: This little corner is meant for learning. This LeapFrog ABC Bus is probably one of my favorite educational toys we have for the girls. It was well beyond worth the tiny price tag and we use it daily. Our first has an amazing vocabulary and this helps her with that in a fun way. The floor pillows are by Ruffles and Beaux Baby and they are the perfect little cushions for this area.Toddler Playroom
  6. This art/activity table (in the photo above from #2) is from Land of Nod as well and the bottom is filled with crayons, markers, stickers and stamps. The roll of paper makes for an easy canvas for the girls creations! The table also has extender legs so it can grow taller with the girls. I definitely love that aspect of it.
  7. The last thing I’ll feature is the girl’s new lego table. Which was actually a last minute inclusion. I have seen the cutest DIY lego table on Pinterest for a while now but in true non-DIY’er fashion I just held out for Ikea to realize this was a need/want and make one of their own. AND TA-DA…they did! I LOVE this FLISAT children’s table and it is so perfect to throw a lego mat over and build whatever your mind can dream!Girls Playroom

 

I hope you all enjoyed this playroom tour and I would love to know what you think below! Let me know!

  • Today we frolicked with the fishies at the aquarium for their school field trip and let’s just say these girls couldn’t be happier! What a special way to kick off the long weekend AND Lo’s birthday 🎉🐠 Seeing them so happy is what I live for! #sistersister #birthdaygirl
  • How can I not feel blessed? Everyone I pass when I’m in public with these 4 blesses me as we pass by 🤣 I’ve had multiple people tell me how calm I seem with them (one of those people asked me if I was on drugs...I can’t make this stuff up!) and they have said that next time they feel stressed they’ll just think of me lol...One of those people was a dad so to his wife, you’re welcome, hopefully he comes home in a better mood 😂 I really should just start writing this stuff down because some of the comments we get are too funny! What is the craziest thing you’ve ever been told when out with your kids!? #momof4 #twinmom
  • Double yap this! Where are my target 🎯 friends at?! Not only is target doing their big toy sale right now but @justplayproducts also has the cutest new #Vamperina toy sets out and these girls certainly approve!! If you have a Vamperina fan you can stock up now while the sale is running!  #ad #justplayproducts #easterbasketstuffers
  • These goofballs performed “Shallow” by @ladygaga & Bradley Cooper in their school talent show last week and I finally got it up on YouTube 👏🏼 🎤 You can find the link in my bio or in my #YouTube highlights! I love watching these girls be so brave and standing in front of a crowd like it’s no big deal. If nothing else these girls are learning confidence and I’m just happy to be their biggest cheerleader 📣 #shallow #talentshow #theyalsosangfrozen #becausetheyreextra 🤣
  • So much thanks to @rutheckerdhall for hosting us today at the Daniel Tiger LIVE ‘King For A Day’ show ✨ Everything was perfect and it’s always a favorite venue of ours to attend. The show was adorable and we had 3 little ones with the biggest smiles on their faces the whole show 🐯 Head over to my stories for more of the fun! Do you like Daniel Tiger?! #hosted #danieltigerlive #rutheckerdhall #kingforaday
  • I’ve never had to be more patient than I have these last couple years building this house. Today was a breath of fresh air and reminded me why we chose the builder we did and why it’s taking as long as it has. He met us here on a Saturday to personally help facilitate the design of our front yard (which includes totally changing our driveway 🤦🏻‍♀️). I hear “change” and I immediately shut down but ultimately he wants this house and the finished product to be just as perfect as we do and that I can respect/appreciate! The house will get done and it will be worth it (I’m telling myself this not you 🤣) I shared a question box in my stories about what you’d all want more of on my feed and house updates were one of them! Here are some from today and I will share more as we finish this project up! The kids LOVED watching the lot get prepped for landscape ☀️ Live action of what they’re looking at is in my stories now!  #buildingcasabryant #newhome #custombuild
