The Quest for the Perfect Playroom - The Final Chapter!

Alright. It's DONE!!! Can I get a wahoo? Here's a little video tour of the completed playroom. Hopefully you'll enjoy the tour guide - my nephew Camden. He makes a great Vana. Thanks also to my brother-in-law for putting together the video. He rocks!


Now here's a flashback for you. This was the playroom BEFORE we moved in.  (Note: NOT our stuff!)


Yikes! It kind of made my head hurt.


Now, if you missed any of the series, here's a link to everything I've done.



The mini mailbox. My father-in-law put this together for me, along with the ladder. He's awesome.

The train - part one, part two, and part three. I also owe a HUGE thanks to my 'lil sis and her husband who helped me make the train idea a reality.


Thanks for pulling into the station! I'm going to take a nap now. Have a great day!

Wow...now that is a seriously FUN playroom!!! I LOVE the train and all it's unique parts. I bet you are gonna have a lot of mommy's wanting playdates at your house!!!! Now I am just curious...what did you do with all the stuff that was previously in the playroom?

annie said...

That is quite the playroom! I wouldn't want my kids to play in it just because they would mess it up!

Tyler and Jess said...

My youngest, Maddie, watched the video tour with me and said wistfully, "I want to go in that room!" Well done, Cheri! I'm always impressed by you!

I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar said...

Katie - It wasn't our stuff. That was the room BEFORE we moved in. Thank goodness it all belonged to the previous owner. Yikes, I hope my kids never have that much stuff!

The Lassie & Laddie said...

Oh no, how sad - I can't watch the video. Says it contains Sony Music material and is therefore not available anymore?

Jodi said...

Awesome! I love that train wall. It reminds me of my "quiet book" that my mom made me when I was a kid.

Mandi said...

Okay Cheri this is how I first found you! Now I remember! That adorable tree wall! SOoo cute. Excellent job.

p.s. I'm assuming the previous owners of your house don't read your blog, right?? (mine does, lol!)

KatrinkaJane said...

Wowie. THIS is the exact kind of thing I aspire to someday, when we own instead of rent. Thank you for laying it all out!

Jen @ tatertotsandjello.com said...

That is such a fun playroom! I love the wall of photos and the mailbox in the wall. I bet your kids just love playing in there.

Thanks so much for linking up to the CSI Project! We really appreciate it. I hope you will come back next week for our Hardware Store challenge!

XOXO

Congrats on finishing the room. It looks amazing and sooo much fun. You can tell it was made with A LOT of love (and sweat I'm sure!)

Thank you for sharing with us, and tips on how you did it.

I thought your nephew was an AWESOME presenter!!

Euharlee said...

Amazing! I completely agree with the "before" photos. Way too much going on! Whew!

The apple tree wall is my favorite, it's just so cute.

Job well done!

I'm including this, and the nursery your sister designed, in my post today. Hope that's okay. Please let me know if it's not. Hope you're having a good day!

~Crystal~ said...

That's incredible! I love the peep through window. If I were a kid, I would wanna come over to your house to play ALL the time. Great job!

From The Heart Crafts said...

Your kid's room is terrific! I was amazed at all the cute ideas you had and actually brought to life. My favorite is the apple tree with the ladder and bucket..such fun!

Mrs. Wright said...

Did I miss what color the paint was!? I LOVE it!

I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar said...

The paint color is Russian Blue from Behr, but it's at 50% so it's lighter.

Kathryn said...

It's official. You're a genius.

Angie said...

I have been wanting a bigger house so that I can use the spare room as a craft room...now I want it for a play room! That is incredible. I'm soo jealous! :) You rock. Seriously.

Kim said...

I just found this! It is so awesome! Our son is bored in his play room, even though it's filled with toys. These are really great ideas! Thanks so much for sharing.

Brie said...

O my! I guess I'm looking at this a little late...but I just "found" it and had to say, this is amazing! I hope someday I can be that creative as well! I hope your boys still love it...and that they stay little enough to enjoy it for a long time! :)

http://livingatthewhiteheadszoo.blogspot.com/ said...

OH...Wow!!! I want to come play, I want to be creative, I want a toy room. This rocks !!

Congratulations from Barcelona, Spain.

ashnsari1 said...

Mandy Confer said...

Oh my goodness! I love your playroom. I have two boys (5 & 3) and they would love this! I have so many ideas now. The train with the look-through is absolutely ingenious! BTW...I loved your comments about boys climbing onto the mantle if you don't give them something to climb! SO TRUE!!!

Glowtish said...

What a fun playroom! Your kids are very lucky. Love the peek-a-boo door. It's brilliant.

www.DothanAcresHomeschool.blogspot.com said...

O what FUN!!! My Little Mister would just LOVE this room! I wonder... if it will fit in my passage, as we dont have any space for a playroom :)

Kaysi said...

This is AMAZING!!!! My boys would love something like this. Someday......

sadia israr said...

thats so cute ..is there a window in the train?ti next room?

Lauren said...

Any tips for someone wanting to try the mailbox idea? I'm guessing there's a cleat of sorts inside against the wall?

I Am Momma - Hear Me Roar said...

Yes, there is a cleat of wood. The cleat is shaped exactly like the mailbox and it's screwed into the stud. Then the mailbox fits over it perfectly and the mailbox is screwed around the perimeter into that cleat. I hope that makes sense!
