Playroom Makeover

I mentioned last week that I gave my playroom a mini makeover so today I thought I'd share some photos with you!
I've been wanting to do something to my playroom for such a long time but I've always put it off. After Christmas we accumulated more toys and our playroom looked like a mess. I needed a more organized way to store the toys but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. We won't be living in this house for forever so I've always just held back on fixing this space up because I wanted to save everything for our future home. Something needed to be done though so I decided to hunt down some cute, inexpensive stuff to spruce up our playroom.
I started with these Threshold cubbies from Target. Target is smart. They had a big storage sale after Christmas because they knew all of us mamas were looking for a way to store all of our new toys that Santa brought. I bought these two cubbies (the 9 cube and 2 cube) and pushed them together then just filled them up with what we had laying around. The wicker bins I already had (from Target) and the blue bins are from Land of Nod that I've had for a while.
I love the cute little Pillowfort line at Target. It fits this space perfectly and it's such a great price. I got a few pieces of art and the animal heads and suddenly this space became so much more fun! I also added a magnet board over Campbell's Ikea play table and he's having a lot of fun with that! The table was previously crammed in the corner where the tee pee is now and it's so funny because Campbell never used it much and now he uses his table almost the entire time he's in the playroom now. I think a lot of the problem is that I had toys sitting on it (because I didn't have anywhere else to put them) but now that it's free of clutter, he can sit there and work puzzles or build things and it's great!
Campbell got a train table for Christmas and he loves it but it posed a problem because it's a big toy and we needed to find a good spot for it. Hence, one of the reasons I needed to make over this playroom. It now has a great spot and I found the railroad crossing sign at Hobby Lobby which I think goes perfectly above it!
So there's our little playroom makeover. Campbell absolutely loves it. You'd think he had a brand new playroom full of new toys. I think he loves it so much because it's more organized so he can see all his toys better. Everything isn't crammed together and he has a better space to play with it all. We used to spend the first two hours of our mornings downstairs just laying around but now he wants to go straight to his playroom to play. I'm so glad he does! I'm enjoying it so much more myself. I used to get depressed in this room but now I love it! I'm glad I finally did something to spruce this space up and the best part is it didn't cost a lot of money. Thanks Target!


  1. Looks great!! I love the Railroad Crossing sign. My husband and my Daddio built my son his train table as a gift for his third birthday. Gave him hours and hours of playtime fun. It's been stored for years but I'll never get rid of a handmade keepsake like that.

    1. Oh how neat!! Yes never get rid of it. Items like that are priceless and can live on for generations!

  2. You got it!! Probably some of my favorite memories of time playing with my son is at that train table. 😊

  3. Where did you get your couch! It's great!
