Sunroom to Playroom

In our new home we have a sunroom that is totally enclosed and we are turning it into a playroom for the kids.

Since it tends to be pretty cold where we live for a good part of the year I wanted to use "happy" colors. I ended up basing the whole room off of the colors of letters of "P-L-A-Y" that I saw at Michael's just before we moved here.
They happened to be the perfect colors to use this year because I've been able to find all kinds of coordinating accessories for the room too!
Here's a sneak peek of what I have done now. I'm excited to share how it continues to evolve with the {Little Projects} that are in the works. (The hanging butterflies are felt from Hobby Lobby's Easter collection. )

I love the idea of a storage bench. You get seating and storage all at once! This storage bench is from the Martha Stewart line that Home Depot carries. I plan to keep books and papers for drawing in the upper shelves. Toys in the bins below. Two of each color will stack in the lower part.

I was thrilled that Hobby Lobby was clearancing their garden line that MATCHED my color choices. The hooks on the wall will hold coats in the winter and umbrellas now. I love the clear "candy-styled bins" for toys on the shelf and the little stuffies around the room are all from there.

I am so excited for this garden cart (from JC Penney.) It will be a few more weeks before the rest of the {Little Project} for the cart is ready to share....

I remember a friend saying that rather than just rush into finishing every touch in your home to get it all finished, you should enjoy the process. Since once it's done you can't dream it up anymore. I've been trying to remember that. These {Little Projects} all take time, but soon they'll add up to the finished product. It will be nice to be done, but it's fun to build it and imagine it right now too!
