Playroom Makeover

We have been in our home for over a year and thanks to the help of 2 Grandpas, we finally "finished" our playroom for the boys in our unfinished basement. 
Here is the horrendous BEFORE
(and my sweet husband trying to fix the pull string on the light that breaks every time my son thinks he is a monkey and hangs from it)
We had a new baby and I didn't even know where to begin organizing it into something fun.
Here it is a several months later. . .
getting a little better (and  my baby is getting bigger:))
And with the help of my genius, handy man Dad who put in 2 lights AND a light switch (no more pull string to hang from), some carpet remnants, an armoire makeover, baskets to organize toys, swings installed by my husbands genius handy man Dad, we have a fun, bright and functional playroom!
Just in time for another boy to arrive in 5 months!! Yikes!
A little mod podge and fun paper turned our old armoire into a great closet for the toys.
(Yep, that is the little baby who is now a big boy)
I think the aluminum insulation walls give it the perfect touch;)

linking up to these parties:


  1. Love it, love it. Is there a lock on the door too? Just for a moment of peace! ;) Hopefully your kids actually play down there. Something about making a playroom makes my kids want to play somewhere else. Everything looks so cute. LOVE the armoir with paper. What a fun idea!

  2. It turned our great!!! Let's hope they stay down there for long stretches of time! I love the swings! Now for your craft area!!

  3. It looks great! Love the light fixtures, swing and the storage for the toys.


  4. So cute! I’d love for you to link your adorable room to Things I’ve Made Thursdays! We have a Crafts for Under Twenty Somethings section that features kids and teens “stuff”, and your post would be perfect for this!

    Hope you’ll stop by on Thursday and link up!!

  5. I think it's wonderful! I think that all kids need a wonderful place to spread out and play, and you gave that to yours (and the future kids, too). I laughed at the line about the walls, and I LOVED the mod podge on the armoir!

  6. What a lovely place for the children to play! You did a great job. Saw you on linky party, now gfc following you, Karima :) www.karimascrafts.com

  7. Adorable! I LOVE that you have swings down there!! I have a cupcake in my logo too. :o)

    Please feel free to link up your playroom to my Make Yourself Monday Blog Hop! I'd love to have you!! :o)

    For Love of Cupcakes

  8. I have a question about your cute ball light fixtures that look like they're made out of string. Did you make them or buy them? I'd love to figure out how to make some for our unfinished basement play/school area. Our bare light bulbs aren't very attractive!

  9. SO pretty!! Would LOVE it if you would share this project at my turquoise lovin' party going on right now!! http://www.sweetlittlegals.com/2011/09/turquoise-lovin-4.html

  10. How did you hang the swings? Great idea!
