An IKEA Playroom

 

IKEA PlayroomToday I’m posting about a long overdue playroom.

We moved into our house almost four years ago. We have a great/weird loft space upstairs, but we haven’t been sure what to do with it. We initially promised our daughter we would make part of it a playroom. We obviously haven’t been in a hurry to make that happen, and she hasn’t been in a hurry to play up there.

After this past Christmas, we realized the playroom had become a necessity as the toys were taking over the rest of the house.  The promised playroom has finally come to fruition and with $300 budget in hand, we headed to IKEA.

Here’s what we did:

Similar: Kallax Shelving $64.99

3 DRONA baskets in Pink $5.99 each

4 SAMLA plastic boxes in clear {Prices vary on size}

2 IKEA VIDJA Lamps in Pink $19.99 each

3 TOLSBY Frames $0.99 each

PYSSLINGAR Toy Trunk $19.99 – this box houses dress up clothes.

BYHOLMA Chest in Espresso $59.99 – this box houses random toys and dolls.Similar:

Similar: LABORG Rug $19.99

MALA Easel $14.99

Target Circo Love N Nature Owl Pillow in Pink $16.99

To display Ella’s large collection of artwork, I purchased some jute string and mini clothespins.  We hung the string to make it look like a clothes line, and now we can change out the ever growing rotation of artwork.

Items Ella already had were a Circo pretend kitchen (similar here), IKEA SUNDVIK table and chairs (similar here), IKEA DUKTIG doll bed.  We filled the plastic bins with coloring books and art supplies.  We put all of her musical instruments in one basket, and created a place to read in the form of a very, very, very old couch salvaged from Nana’s basement.  It’s also a sleeper sofa and Ella’s enjoying a slumber on it right now.

The art easel was a present from Santa this year.  I have decided to use the chalk board in a creative way, by writing daily affirmations and positive messages to Ella.  She is pretty, she is smart, and dog gone it people like her.

The reality is, it may not be the fanciest playroom, but she loves it and it looks pretty good for $300.  Now if we can get her to not only want to sleep in it, but to also play in it…
