Thayer Manor Playroom Update

Over the weekend, I was able to open up the windows, and keep the doors open to air out the house, and I decided to finally just pull the trigger on the kid’s playroom artwork debacle (magnetic paint challenge post here).  The magnetic paint didn’t work- I went through one whole can on an 8×10 so that’s saying something. I decided to ransack the kid’s artwork and just frame them-an-hang em.


Here’s a reminder of the room; Acadia White on the walls with White Dove trim/doors. No door handles; because the ones I bought are too small- just my luck. The 5×8 chartreuse and ivory striped rug is from Cost World Market seen here.

Still need to replace all the sockets and electrical plugs with white ones, and put plates on. I moved my daughter’s vanity to the opposite side with her doll house, and I’d like to make a large framed chalkboard for that wall for the kids to play on…

Ikea cabinet with Ikea baskets (gotta live Ikea). It’s hard to see, but the frames are 8×10 and 8×12 and all hung evenly with the TV centered at the bottom. In front of the cord on the left, I added a canvas hamper filled with toys, and the kids’ bean bags sit on the floor.

Slow and steady…
