A Playroom for Two Brothers to Play

While I was pregnant with our second son, we made the decision to transform our downstairs office into a room dedicated to play.  We started with neutral colors like black, grey and brown and then filled the room with bright hues inspired by the San Antonio Fiesta poster we received from a friend.  As always, we stuck to a budget and shopped for bargains!  Most everything was purchased from Ikea, Target, Walmart or made in my studio.  My favorite things are the repurposed oil drip pans, used for creating Duplo masterpieces or learning new words.  We have fun in this room everyday and don’t miss our boring office one bit!

RJ’s Lil’ Man Cave Nursery

We wanted to create a fun nursery for our first baby boy.  We were gifted some beautiful vintage Comboys and Indians prints which set the tone for many of the accents in the room including the teepee and feather wall decals and buffalo wall bust.  But, we didn’t feel the need to stick with one theme and included other favorites like sock monkey and firetrucks, perfect for a little boy!
We started with neutral colors like brown, navy, and grey which left room for pops of color with reds and oranges. We stayed on budget by refinishing an old rocker and picking up furniture pieces and accents from affordable stores like Ikea, Target, Walmart, Etsy, and Zulily.
We’re now about to welcome out second little boy and can’t wait to transition him into this fun room!
