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!
