We are lucky enough to have a playroom in our home, a place to keep all the toys and games that come with children. When we first moved into this home, the playroom was the first room I tackled. I started with a bookcase and some pops of bright primary colored art on the walls. This week I added another colorful gallery wall with pictures of the girls and monograms, a Colorful Playroom Gallery Wall.
This playroom is one of my favorite rooms in the house. A month after we moved in I painted this laminate bookcase and brought new life to an old piece. Yes you can paint laminate furniture! Check out this tutorial and see how I did it. This bookcase is holding up great almost 2 years later.
For this new gallery wall I started with 2 yellow frames I found on clearance at Michael’s and some black and white pictures of my girls.
I added in some arrows, painted wood squares, and monograms to round out the wall.
To create the arrows and monograms I used Silhouette Washi Sheets. These can be cut into intricate shapes using your Silhouette machine, or using scissors as I did. I painted the sides in red and blue, the face in white, then layered the washi sheets over the top.

To hang the pieces on this wall I used Command picture hanging stripes. I love these, I am so indecisive when it comes to things on my wall. These hold light objects well and come off clean.

This wall brightens up a previous blank space and looks so good with the other bold colors in this room.
Do you have a playroom, how is it decorated?
