Our Farmhouse Playroom Reveal

Our Farmhouse Playroom Reveal

It has been a while since I have shared progress on the playroom!  To refresh your memory, I shared the plan for making our upstairs loft into a playroom for Shiloh in this blog post and then a progress update in this post. Since then, we’ve been living in the space and editing pieces here and there. It’s been amazing to have an area to house dedicated to a play space for our munchkin. Luckily, our playroom is mostly unseen from the main living space but since it’s all open it doesn’t feel disconnected. The decor and pieces in the room are fluid and will grow with Shiloh but we’re in a good place with the room right now so without further adieu, let’s take a look at how far we’ve come with our farmhouse playroom!

Playroom Before:

The upstairs loft didn’t serve much of a purpose prior to it becoming the playroom. It housed a daybed that we used for extra guests and at one point our Peloton lived here. We moved both of those things out to make way for some cute kid-friendly decor.… Read more

Playroom Progress Update

We’ve been making slow but steady progress in the playroom so I thought I’d share an update. It’s coming together thanks to the addition of a few key pieces.

Remember this empty wall space? It’s the only wall in the loft without windows so I wanted to do something fun and impactful. I settled on a removable wall mural and it makes such a fun impact.

I love the colors and the playfulness of the mural, isn’t it so cute? We finally got our nugget sofa (ours is the bamboo color) and it’s been a fun addition to the room.

We get a ton of afternoon sunlight pouring into this room so window treatments were a must. I decided on these plaid budget-friendly curtains and I love the subtle pattern and farmhouse feel. The polka dot rug is the latest arrival. I had trouble deciding between a more traditional rug and this playful kids rug and ultimately I chose to embrace the fun, playroom vibe.… Read more

Upstairs Loft Playroom Design Introduction

Hi friends! Today I’m introducing you to the next project we’re going to be working on, converting our upstairs loft bonus room into a playroom. I’ve never shared this space in our home before. Mostly because it has never really had a purpose. It previously housed my Peloton and we keep a daybed in here for overflow guests. The room is large and open to the downstairs. Our fireplace is two-story and two-sided so we have a second fireplace in this space. While having a large stone structure in the middle of the room isn’t ideal for a toddler’s playroom, it’s what we have.

Upstairs Loft Playroom: The Before

Check out the before photos of the space.

One wall is entirely windows so it gets a lot of natural light. This room faces west so the afternoon light in here is quite intense so we will need a window covering solution.

There is currently a closet (the door to the right of the daybed) that I want to convert into a playhouse. It’s not a very deep closet so we may have to build it out a bit.… Read more
