When we bought a house this past summer, we knew we would grow into it. As we began to settle into our new home, we we wanted to do something special for Peyton. With an extra (empty) bedroom on our second floor, we decided to turn it into Peyton’s perfect playroom….a place that is just for Miss P. Over the past few months, we made purchases and kept the door closed until Christmas Day. Peyton was surprised and full of excitement as we introduced her to the playroom, or as she calls it, “pay room!” A massive grin spread over her face as she ran from one thing to the next! And while we still have a few other plans in the works for this room, it’s absolutely perfect for Peyton.
I have zero artistic ability, so we enlisted our dear friend and nanny, Leda. She’s an artist and painted a beautiful tree, complete with three butterflies (a little tribute to Peyton, Parker and Abby). No, that’s not a decal, she painted it!
Peyton Size Table
This was a great find online at Target. It’s solid wood and a great height for Peyton, plus she has plenty of room to grow into it. It’s already been used for drawing and arts and crafts.
DIY Book Shelves
I’m so proud of these book shelves made from gutters. It’s an idea I found on Pinterest and enlisted my husband to create it after a quick trip to the hardware store. The cost was under $30 and it’s big enough to fit dozens of books. In the opposite corner of the room, we added a large beanbag chair. Peyton loves to sit next to the tree and read her books.
This was another great find! We purchased this tent months ago from Sam’s Club. Peyton loves to read inside and pretend play.
An easel was a must have for Peyton. Not only is it great for her creativity, it’s also a helpful tool for her development. The drawing and painting is great for her fine motor skills and the reaching up high is helping her weak core.
By opening this space up for Miss P, we were able to clear some of the clutter on our main floor. You may see her pink kitchen as you walk into our home, but it no longer looks like a little child runs the house! And by the looks of the picture, Riley is thrilled to have some peace and quiet. Next up, tackling our basement, which has been taken over by endless toys!
