Playroom Reveal! Making Space For A Growing Family

Playroom makeover reveal - creating space for a growing family

Success! We managed to turn our 1,200 square foot home into a place for a family of four to live, work, and thrive. What the photos don’t show is our newborn making this room his temporary home (complete with a bassinet and sound machine). It's an adjustment, but we're making it work! What's really put my mama-heart at ease has been the transformation of our forgotten sunroom. Turning it into a cozy, welcoming space for our newborn has allowed for an easier transition to our new life, and for our toddler to accept the fact that he is not an only child anymore. All this is thanks to a bit of paint from Sherwin-Williams.          

Before and After | From sunroom to playroom, see how we made space for our growing family.

Since the room was really small, we had to make the most of every space. One whole wall is windows, so that only left us with only three walls to work with. We lined the longest wall with shelves to make the most of the vertical space, and we use the shelves to store books, toys, diapers, and the like.

We chose the perfect neutral gray paint colors for the wall and floor with help from the Sherwin-Williams store employees, and were even able to test how these colors would look in our space with the ColorSnap® app. The lime green accents add a fun pop of color to what would otherwise be boring, white shelves. We matched the lime green paint perfectly to the color of our playroom chairs at our local Sherwin-Williams store. With all this shelving, we now have much more storage space to work with.

Playroom reveal - a desk for a little artist.

We used one of the other walls as an art station for our son. We made a built-in desk and hung shelves above to hold all of the art supplies. The desk is one of his favorite aspects of the room. Since we painted the desk with Sketch Pad™ dry erase coating, he can draw directly on the surface with his dry-erase markers. We just had to really drive home the fact that this was the only surface he could write on directly! 

Using Sketch Pad paint from Sherwin-Williams, we were able to create a desk that our toddler could draw all over!

With SketchPad™ paint, clean-up is a breeze!

Not only does this space have loads of personality, but it now feels like everyone has a place of their own. We are excited to see our boys transform from brothers into friends in this playroom over the years to come.
