Show Us Where You Live~Playrooms, Bonus Rooms, Laundry Room


Welcome to this weeks edition of Show Us Where You Live. Today, we are going to be touring 3 rooms: the kids playroom, the work-out room (the hubs bonus room) and the laundry room.

Up first is the kids playroom. I had a very sweet friend come in and paint the murals on the wall. I wanted the playroom to look like the kids were outside playing in the park. I showed my friend one of my favorite children's books and she recreated some of the scenes out of the book and put them on the wall. Below are a few pictures of the playroom.

This is the view looking into the playroom from the basement family room. I love that the kids playroom is right off the family room.


Scripture written above the door leading out of the playroom.


A picture of the toys actually put away HA! (this picture was taken at about 6am ~ before the kids were awake to destroy the playroom)


Along this wall, I wanted a "garden scene" using our hand prints to look like flowers. When the wall was done, my little girl was only a couple months old and she would not leave her hand open long enough to put it on the wall, so we used her foot. I love how this wall turned out and that it has a little piece of all of us on it. =)


This is Jack's corner...he loves to play on the tool benches.


This is Madeline's corner...she loves to take care of her baby dolls.

Below are just some more views of the playroom.










Next stop is the Work-out room. Um...let's just say that this room does not get used enough =)





And the final stop on the tour is the Laundry room. Unlike the work-out room, this room gets used entirely too much. =)



Thanks for stopping by on this weeks edition of show us where you live! Be sure to check out Kelly's Korner to see some more rooms and get a lot of great ideas!

The playroom is where a child’s imagination grows. And the Child Desks where it prospers. Well, I believe in having utility-based Kids Playroom Furniture at home.
