Sorry for the silence over here last week. We went on a family vacation to Disney World and it was amazing. It was so nice to have a whole week with family. The highlight was definitely seeing my almost 3 year old little girl's face light up as she met all the characters and princesses. I realize it sounds cheesy, but it really was a magical time!
We are fortunate enough to a have a playroom in our new home. It's really nice to have a place to corral all the toys, or try to anyways. I'm still deciding what to do in there. I feel like there are so many different directions I could go with it, but I just can't make up my mind. In the meantime I wanted to do something in there to make it look a little more finished. It's one of the first rooms you see when you walk in the house, so I wanted it to look somewhat put together. I started by hanging a curtain rod we had lying in the garage. Then I hung up a few pairs of IKEA Vivan curtains someone had given us as a housewarming gift. These curtains are a little flimsy on their own, but doubling them up made such a difference. And they are so affordable ($9.99/pair) that you can do so without breaking the bank.
I still felt like they were lacking, so I added some black pom pom trim to the leading edge. It instantly made them more playful and added another layer of texture to the room.
I just stitched the trim on with my sewing machine, but you could also use fabric glue to achieve the same end result.
If you follow me on instagram (@dwellingsbydevore) you already saw these, but I found this pair of vintage mid century modern chairs for $20 on Craigslist the other day! I couldn't email the seller fast enough. I believe they are Russell Woodard Sculptura chairs, but I'm not 100% sure. They look identical to all the ones I've seen online. I'm thinking about adding them to the playroom to create a little sitting area. I'm undecided on the color but I'm thinking either a bold color or maybe something a little more neutral like a warmish putty.
It seems like most of the rooms in this house are just evolving as we go. I haven't really had a strong idea of what I wanted from the beginning, except for with our master bedroom. But I kind of like it that way because the rooms look more collected and interesting as they change over time.
