Happy Monday! Hope you all had an awesome weekend kicking off the official Fall season! With the start of Fall, I am kicking off a collaboration with 18 other DIY bloggers- we are going to FALL IN LOVE with spaces in our homes that need a little TLC to make them shine!
I’ve chosen to make over our playroom. It’s always been sort of half baked, like many of my ideas, frankly. This space is in our basement, and is a large finished space, perfect for lounging kiddos. I started back in 2012 to give it a vintage map inspired look….
… and then it just sort of stagnated. And The maps were only temporary and the kids would knock them off the walls and I started to twitch and break out in hives. So I just basically avoided going into this space as much as possible. But its time has come, and I have a plan. Before I show you the plan, let me show you where we are really starting…
And that would be Emmy, begrudgingly helping me clean up and sort through toys. 😉
And now, let me show you the plan, which is inspired by our love of fantasy books and movies, in particular Lemony Snickets, The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, The Hobbit, and more!
So these are the basic elements of our playroom! And if it comes out as planned, I will certainly fall in love and might take over… the kids will have to find another space.
Here are the product sources clockwise from top left: Avalon Wallpaper Mural, Vintage Found Lockers (which may or may not stay aqua) Sputnik Light Fixture , Capiz Pendant, The Mandatory Blogger Pillow , Amber Velvet Pillows, Kaia Kilim Rug, Animal Prints, and Artwork Created by Me.
As you saw last week, I got a teensy jump start with a couple items from World Market. And everything else you see has already been delivered to my house as well, so now it’s just pure execution from here! Wish me luck!

I am really looking forward to what this amazing team has in store! Cheers!
