Pieces for the Perfect Playroom

I live in New York City so the idea of having a room solely used as a play space is a total luxury but that hasn't stopped me from bookmarking scads of things I'd incorporate into a playroom if we had one.  I even put together an Etsy Treasury filled with goodies I've found there that scream color and comfort and all of the other things I envision a playroom being.  Here's a peek at some of my fun finds:

I don't know which is my favorite.  Maybe the giraffe growth chart?  No, the giant felt balls that can be used as toys or pillows.  But wait!  There's also the felt library playhouse that you make with a card table.  You know what?  It's too hard to choose.  You can visit the treasury HERE to get more details on all of the items and decide for yourself.

So what else is on my playroom must have list?  A fanciful framed out television like this one that Ashley from Lil Blue Boo painted for a client. {get the details here}

 Cool wallpaper paneled doors like these from Martha Stewart. {find the tutorial here}

A table painted in colorful chalkboard paint surrounded by some whimsical mismatched chairs.  I adore this upholstered set {via Be Different Act Normal}:

Although something more along these lines is probably more practical! {picture from}

And last, but certainly not least, some great flower and pom pom festooned lantern lights, like these from Crafty Nest: {the full how to can be found here}

So that's what I have planned for Gabrielle and Alaina's imaginary playroom.  There's nothing wrong with dreaming, right? 

Did you find a favorite thing in my Etsy Perfect Playroom Treasury?  Or is there another fabulous find that's a must have for your little one's play space?  Post a comment and tell me all about it.  I'm a glutton for punishment!

  2. I'm also a NYC momma... and while it's hard to visualize having a playroom here, a girl can dream. I love the ideas you found on Etsy. The "You are my sunshine" print is just adorable. I sing that to my baby girl every night! Love your site.
