Project playroom: ready for its reveal

When we moved here a few years ago, I wasn't exactly sure what we would do with this detached space that is just a couple steps from the backdoor of our house:

But once we had our first son, I realized that it would make a great playroom, especially since we don't have a finished basement or extra kid room in the house.

So this summer I began turning this blank space into a place for our two boys and shared the progress along the way here, here, here, herehere, here, here, aaaaand here

And now that the custom cushions for the built-in seat (which lift up and double as toy storage) are in, I think I can call this playroom complete.

So here's a look around and at the end of this post, there's a source list and a special coupon code for readers of this blog!

Making room for roommates

Hi there!
I've been meaning to share how we made room for two cribs in the nursery for a while now and finally got around to taking some pictures this weekend.
Even though Sammy is still sleeping in our bedroom next to me, we have his bed all ready for him to transition into in the next month or so.

After playing around with a few different furniture configurations, we decided on putting his crib in the little nook where the changing table used to be.

The crib, purchased here, isn't exactly the same as Charlie's but the style is very similar.
The sale price was pretty nice too!

So where's the changing table?
It's actually now in their bathroom which has worked out nicely.
Those diaper genies can smell pretty terrible so at least that unpleasantry is contained to the bathroom!

A big thanks to RenĂ© of Cottage and Vine for today's feature!
