this is the final week of room tours and out takes from my home that was featured in the Land of Nod catalog.  you can see the other rooms right here and the video tour right here.

welcome to my dining room.  i mean playroom.  about a year ago, i decided to turn my dining room into a playroom.  yes, we have a playroom in the basement but no one ever wanted to be down there.  and, of course, i wasn’t able to always go sit down there with the little ones.  so, one day, it dawned on me, why not, for a few years, turn the dining room into a playroom?  we didn’t use the dining room, that often, and we really didn’t have to make any major  changes.  and the great thing about it is, that when the time comes to turn it back, there won’t be much to it.

to change things, we gave the room some fresh paint, took the dishes out of the hutch and exchanged them for toys, hung a few shelves and let the same fancy chandelier do its thing and shine some magic into the space.

you can shop the look of this room right here!  but here is a list of some of the resources :

paint / top half of the room = winter wheat by benjamin moore.  bottom half of the room = filmy green by sherwin willimas.
hutch old piece that my mom bought at ace hardware, of all places
light fixture/ i bought this (for a steal) out of someone’s dining room (literally).
play table / land of nod
chairs / little felix + iron rich play chairs 
rocking chair/  retro rocker
rug / the land of nod
wire bins / down to the wire bins
polka dot bin / dotted storage collection
airplane + hedgehog night light / land of nod
lime green tea towel / lucky fish
cloud pillow / land of nod (this pillow makes me smile everyday)
yellow pouf / pull up a pouf

i hope you have enjoyed this little series and a behind the scenes look and out takes from the Land of Nod catalog.  and, thank you Land of Nod for being so rad!

Hi! I made that little yellow and turquoise owl that is in the shot with the chandelier and on the craft table!! I had no idea it had found its way into the Land of Nod catalog! Similar owls are in my Etsy shop, http://www.etsy.com/shop/friendsofsocktopus

What a gorgeous playroom! I love the two toned walls. Did you do it to make the room look wider? I hope to recreate the look in our new playroom but I’m not sure if it would look good with our 8 ft ceiling. Do you mind sharing the height of the room? Thanks.

thank you! i just loved the look of it. my ceilings are about 8 ft too and i’m very happy with how it turned out. i think more than two toned design, it’s the light and bright colors that really open the room up. have fun with your new playroom!
