Last year, we moved from Florida to Arizona and settled into a bigger house. In Florida things were a little cramped and the kids shared a room. Now they both have their own rooms and we have a huge back yard and extra space for them to have their own playroom. Yea! It was a total win moving to Arizona.
With all this space, we have a playroom which is also a front living room and it looks cluttered. We need some major home improvement. My visions of having tea with a friend while the kids play were starting to look slim. No one wants to sit in a pile of LEGOS. At least not me.
So, I spend time in the other living room while they play. I have found myself wanting to reorganize things and make it more of a living space while still allowing the kids their own playroom. But how does one muster up these DIY, home improvement projects when your so busy?
It’s hard to find time to go furniture and home decor shopping when you are chasing young kids! I’m so exhausted with school drop-offs, pick-ups, play dates, and Birthday Parties, I’d rather shop online for everything. Better yet, I’d rather get all my home decor and furniture in one place; Home Depot.
Home Depot makes home improvement in the home decor department convenient and hassle free. With easy online shopping tools where you can “shop a room” or “shop the look” by style and get product recommendations, their site is practically doing the DIY work for you.
It’s all about Furniture adding more than just visual satisfaction. This Kerala Brown Coffee Table is perfect for a play room because it has multiple uses. I would probably store puzzles and games in it. The kids might hide in it.
These baskets for storage are awesome! The Blue Artistic Weavers seen above come in four more colors. Made in Vietnam, with bamboo, they are durable enough to load up with toys or extra Throw Blankets.
By wall decor, I’m not looking for the kids color scheme, red, yellow, blue and green! I’m not interested in Superheroes either. We can leave that for their bedroom. What I’m looking for is nice, bright, wall art like this one; “Autumn River” by Neeva Kedem. It’s also a nice distraction from seeing toys on the floor. Wall Decor opens the space up.
Candle’s always make a room look comfortable and welcoming. I love their Litton Lane New Traditional Teal Wooden Candle Holders. I’m not suggesting that you light candles while your kids play. You can always get the flameless candles. But it’s such a pretty accent to a play room that you want to make into a relaxing living room also.
Add some throw pillows like the Zuan Poly Standard Pillow. I love the pom pom detail!
Home Depot has a huge collection of Throws and Blankets, like these Belgium Linen Natural Fringed Throws. They are handwoven by skilled artisans of pure linen with fringe trim and super soft with vintage texture.
A new couch changes everything. It can change the whole feel of the room. This beautiful, stylish Club 3-Piece Tufted Red Bonded Leather Sofa Set is perfect for having a get together with the moms and relaxing while the kids play. It’s available in four colors too.
There’s so much more you can do to renovate an old play room with Home Depot’s Home Decor department, the possibilities are endless. With free returns at +2,200 stores, free shipping on orders over $45* and 100% satisfaction guarantee, DIY projects are as simple as ever.
