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!

  • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether

  • Giving you a tour of the under the stairs playhouse as it stands now on the blog tonight! The fort inside is just as well made as out the outside and I was happy to test it out for the kids 😜 They still haven’t seen it! It’s going to be good. Head to the link in my bio (I will post in stories too along with a video tour) for more! I’m so excited for the kids to see it! Their reaction will be part of a fun project I’m working on AND part of the big surprise I’m working towards being able to announce SOON ✨ Thank you for all your support, I’m just as eager to get talking 🥰 #underthestairsplayhouse #kidsinteriors
  • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation! These videos would have otherwise gotten lost in a sea of other videos but instead they turned them into this priceless family montage that we can enjoy for years to come! If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
  • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
  • Happy first (official) day of summer! We may have been on two summer trips already but we’ll still celebrate the #firstdayofsummer because we just love summer that much ☀️ #beachdays #summervacay
