Eek! It’s finally here! I’m so excited to be able to share Part 2 of my girls’ dream playroom makeover. If you haven’t seen Part 1 yet, stop reading, go take a look, and then come back here. If you have seen Part 1 then you know that I had so much fun creating this space and am so proud of myself for having conjured it all up in my head without being able to see it live. That’s a huge win for me. So, I know you don’t want to hear me blab about it anymore so let’s just go take a look, shall we?
I said it in Part One of the Girls Dream Playroom Makeover reveal and I’ll say it again. This room was a h-o-t mess (literally and figuratively; it’s above the garage and is always warm and always messy). The space was pretty much a catch-all for everything, had no rhyme or reason to the layout, and was basically just a drab space. In order to fully appreciate the after of this side of the room, you have to take in the before.
As I mentioned in Part 1 of the Dream Playroom Makeover reveal, the room is split into two parts: the inside of their “home” shown in today’s post and the outside (shown in Part 1). I honestly can’t pick a favorite spot in this space so let’s just go around counter clockwise and take a look at all of it. There are links to almost everything throughout this post. I hope you love it as much as we do!
The paint color on the walls is Bare Pink by Olympic. The chandelier is from IKEA (there’s one hanging in each of my girls’ bedrooms, too). I covered our “futon” with a pink fitted sheet (because actual Futon covers don’t work for ours) and tossed a pink throw blanket and ivory throw pillow on there to spruce it up. I couldn’t get rid of the “futon” because it’s a back-up guest bed for when we have a full house. Plus, I like having a place to sit when I’m up there. 🙂
Happy Home Storage Bookcase
The Happy Home Storage Bookcase from Delta Children was the last piece to be put in place in the room and it was so worth the wait. It sits right smack in the middle of the space and is an awesome feature piece. I love that it holds their books, puzzles, Cinderella figurines, and stuffed animals while also fitting into my whole “home” theme by being it’s own little house. I mean, the name is “Happy Home” – perfect, right?! I like to think of it as the “door” that leads outside and back in, so to speak. It’s a great size and is super adorable. My girls love it (and so do I).
Baby Doll Space
I decided to put the baby bed and high-chair in-between the corner kitchen and bookshelf because 1. It just so happened to fit there, and 2. I liked having the high chair next to the kitchen. My girls love to pretend to feed their babies; they’re the cutest little mommies.
Oh man. My girls love-love-love this space. While they had a play-kitchen before, this one is brighter and big enough for them both to play with it at the same time. I added a 3m hook to the left side so I could hang their pretend apron and chef hat. I also got rid of all their old pots & pans and replaced them with these pots and this dish set (that matches the colors perfectly). Inside the fridge is new (sturdy) pretend food that I bought, too. We love this kitchen!
Next to the kitchen is their “laundry room” that holds their cleaning supplies and washer/dryer unit. Our mop & broom hang on hooks in our laundry room so I thought, how cute would it be to do the same with theirs? so I got online and found this 4-hook hanger and it fit perfectly. I get a kick out of how cute it all is hanging there. The washer/dryer unit matches perfectly with the kitchen and my girls are obsessed with it, too. The little laundry basket at the bottom is just darling and they love the chalk board on one side and the iron/ironing board on the other. The ironing board is the perfect height to fit their little vacuum under it. The vacuum is old so check out the newer version and this cuter one.

Words of Truth
In between the closet and the entryway door, there’s a small space that fits a toy box my husband built but it is otherwise dead space. I was cruising through Hobby Lobby and thought, how amazing would it be to have words of Truth and affirmation surround them while they play? So this wall was born. As with all of the other pieces on the walls, I had to make sure I hung these high enough so the girls couldn’t pull them down.
My girls love to color and draw so I set up this designated space so they can do just that. I love watching their little imaginations blossom and I fell in love with the wall decal (it’s a quote from Walt Disney); I love how it fits the floral theme of the rest of the room and the hanging mum balls make it feel a little magical. Even though I got super washable markers, crayons, and colored pencils (Did you know twistable colored pencils are a thing now?! No sharpening required!), the pails only sit on the tables when an adult is in the room with them. Little girls can’t be trusted. 🙂
I also got this ah-mazing rug for the middle of the room. It’s seriously the softest rug ever. My girls like to lay down and make “rug-angels” (think snow angels but with carpet). I honestly don’t think I’ve ever felt a softer rug under my feet. Mine is 5’3″ x 7’6″.
So there you have it! What do you think? Tell me in the comments!
