Remember a couple of weeks ago when I showed you the picture of Lily’s messy play room?  Let me remind you in case you forgot.

Well, that room has been transformed! It’s amazing what some paint color and organization can do.

I wanted a play room that Lily wouldn’t outgrow in a year, and one that allowed her to do some of her favorite things, like reading, coloring and painting, and playing with her kitchen set.  And because Lily is such a sweet, happy little girl, I chose colors that I thought represented just that – a yellow called “Sunglow” and a fuschia color called “Radiant Orchid,” which just so happens to be the color of the year at Lowe’s.

We still have a few things to organize, like the closet, as well as some small decorative touches to add, but for now I am excited to share these photos of our new, bright, improved play room.

These are our Ikea spice rack bookshelves.  With a little paint, these work great for displaying Lily's favorite board books.

This is our art center, where Lily and her friends can color, paint, stamp, draw and do crafts.

This is our art gallery wall, where Lily and Rydan can display their masterpieces.

The Room looks AWESOME! Radiant Orchid is the color of the year, not just at Lowes! Last year was Emerald. It’s sad that I know this useless information! I love the room and can’t wait to see the rest!
