Colorful Playroom Gallery Wall

Share this post

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.

I also added these colorful frames and a corner full of tissue paper pom poms.

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?
