Playroom Progress (2)

The projects continue around our house, and I'm finally starting to feel like our house is a home.

Full and functional.

We've been focusing on continuing to convert our former unused big kid office

To a much more functional, and cute, playroom.

As promised, we combined my initial inspiration:

With my really bad amateur PowerPoint skills for a rough rendering

We Husband flexed his muscles, pulled out those power tools, and implemented the vision.

I bring you cute, functional, and cheap yet again.

I liked the view while "we" were constructing these.
Excuse you.  Stop staring please.
Hottie #10.
We weren't able to do the mirror because we figured that with a maniac on the loose (i.e. this munchkin)...

...that it wasn't the safest idea to have a large mirror at hands grasp, ready for him to rip it off the wall.  {Uhh, 7 years of bad luck - no thank you}.

So we opted for a large galvanized sheet of metal, perfect for magnets, instead (way cheaper too I might add). 

We started with three 24x36 pieces of MDF from the local hardware store.  I painted one with chalkboard paint, we attached cork board roll to the other, and used spray adhesive to place the galvanized metal for the 3rd.

Then using some molding from the hardware store that the hubs cut, nailed, and caulked (that's a funny word), we had custom framed, uniform playroom boards.

We aren't done by any means, but we are making GREAT progress.
