Fun, Functional Kids Playroom

I am so excited to get the opportunity to plan a playroom.  This room was once our den…so it’s already equipped with a tv and computer.  It just needs  a new color, some rearranging and toys!  There is already a great bookcase that I just love that is staying.  We will add other toys as necessary. 
Here are some pictures that I’m using as inspirations.

I love the chalk board walls in this room.  Although my kids won’t have an entire room full of chalk board paint.  They will have a very big magnetic/chalk board to create masterpieces upon.
I love the idea of having a place to display art work.  Between all the art they do here at the house and then the stuff that comes home from school, I have a feeling we will need a bigger place to display it.  What better way then to use their playroom!
Seating.  I love the small table with chairs and stool for a place to play games, do puzzles, painting and coloring!    Plus it’s fun! 
These are some great ideas that I plan on incorporating in the playroom.  We have already decided on a paint color, it’s blue.  Both girls want blue, so as long as I choose a shade that blends well with the green in the dining/living room we’re good! 
I will have several projects planned out, from the window treatments, which I plan on making out of placemats or scrapbook paper to the lamp shade that will need a new look.  Plus the chalk/magnetic board.  
Ok.  So I am ready to get this furniture out of here!  *smiles*
