{Toy Room Design Plans}

I have been busy designing a toy room for the kids. Right now, the room is basically a catch all room *gag*. Boring beige walls...so not fun for a kid! So, over the next few weeks I'll be working on getting this room done. And, I'll be sharing the transformation with you! These are the plans I have so far.

I wanted colors that are happy and really pop! This is going to be a bright, fun, exciting room for the kids! The top half of the walls are going to be painted Valspar's Summer Splash (5002-9C ), and the bottom half of the wall will be Valspar Citrus Tickle (6008-9C). Just the names of those paint colors make me smile. :) The accent colors are a darker pink, red, and a sunshine yellow. I bought the trim last weekend and the paint yesterday. I'm anxious to get started!

I'm also planning on putting up some sort of a chalk board area on our walls. {Hopefully this will keep Little Miss Kate from drawing on the walls elsewhere!}

Remember last week I said I was going to make some printable wall art for the kids' bathroom? Well, I did! (That's for another post *wink wink*) And, I made some for the toy room while I was at it! These will be put into some 5 1/2 x 14 1/2 in. frames that I got from the thrift store for $1 each! They will be spray painted red and hung on the walls. I can't wait to see how they turn out! Stay tuned for a 8x10 version of these printables for YOU! :)

I always wanted a bean bag when I was a kid. I remember one fall I took a giant trash bag and filled it with leaves- thinking I was so genius- and within about 5 minutes it was a flat crunchy mess. So sad. So, we got the kids each a bean bag in their choice of color. This way, they each have their own and there will be no fighting over who gets which bean bag.

I have an old coffee table from when my husband and I were first married that is going to get a makeover! I'm turning it into a bench like the one below and will make a cushion and some accent pillows. I found some fabric ideas for the pillows...haven't decided on which ones yet. But, something bright and happy! :)

And, if I'm still feeling ambitious, I'll make a pennant banner with some matching fabric!

And there you have it! What do you think? If you have any suggestions or tips, send them my way! :) I'm so excited to get started!
