Playroom Wall Art

Share this post

I’ve been sharing with you, over the last couple of weeks, pieces of my daughter’s playroom.  This room was a blank slate with white walls and a big window.  It’s great to have a fresh start. No wallpaper to take down, no woodwork to repair (both of these items too oh so long in our last house).  The goal of this room is a fun and bright place to play and be a silly kid.

You can view a couple of the projects I’ve already completed below.

I transformed a dull laminate bookcase into a bright fun functional piece. DIY Tissue Paper Pom Poms

This was the first piece of art I made months ago in preparation for this room.

Now onto the blank walls.  There were a couple pieces I knew I wanted in this room.  One is the green frame above with the Christopher Robin quote.  We love Winnie the Pooh around here so this fits perfectly, without being to “themed”.

The next piece is this hippo woven picture that my mother made for my brother’s room when he was a baby.  She gave it to us a while back because my daughter loves hippos, and the colors work great here.

The last existing piece is a Nedoback illustrated alphabet poster.  He is a local artist and this poster is signed and has some custom doodles on it just for my daughter.  He does some really cute work, you can check him out here if you are interested.

Then it was time to create new pieces.  I picked up a couple frames from garage sales and painted them bright colors.

The red frame is actually plastic, gold plastic.  It formerly held a cat cross stitch. It’s all about looking past, in this case, the cat, and seeing what it can become.

In the blue frame I added a colorful piece of scrapbook paper and one of my favorite pictures of my daughter from last summer.

I found some good-sized letters at Michael’s for about $1 each and painted them yellow.

On the opposite wall I hung a bulletin board  which was in pretty bad shape.  So I covered it with a bright blue geometric patterned fabric.  I just used a bit of hot glue to adhere it to the wood frame.  I feel like this piece might be temporary. so it’s hanging on a 3M Command hook.

Side note:  I love these hooks! (and no one is paying me to say that :) ) I have a wall of pictures in my dining room hung with 3M Command Hooks.  Just in case I want to move things around when I get to sprucing up that room. Maybe I have a commitment issue….I’m ok with that.

I am so happy with the result of the walls.  Nice pops of color, exactly what I wanted.

2 more projects until I can call this room complete; a toy box and curtains.  Take look at this toy box, I have big plans for this baby!  Should be done soon.
