Today is the day!! My six weeks as a guest participant in the One Room Challenge are over. I’m so excited to reveal our new playroom! Before I show you a million pictures, this post contains affiliate links. Shopping from the links that I’ve provided costs you no extra but I earn a small percentage of the sale. Thanks for supporting House Homemade. Keep scrolling to see these beautiful playroom renovation ideas.
Isn’t it so pretty?! My goal was a more sophisticated spot, a room that could grow with the girlsies, and a place with lots of spots to lounge. Mission accomplished if I do say so myself.If you want to be able to go back and get more details from along the way, here are those posts:
This is the view you see when you first walk in the room. The gorgeous wall paper is called ‘backyard botanicals’ and is from Spoonflower. We built the bases of the built ins, added Ikea bookshelves on top and trimmed it all in for day bed/ reading nook/ window seat goodness. A how-to post on this and the rest of the DIY projects will be written eventually. Stick around : )
In the center of the room there’s an art table for art-ing and a desk built for “writing”…and whatever else a 4 and a 6 year old might do at a desk as opposed to a table. ; ) PS they really like desks ever since we made mine. The shelf brackets I used are from Crates and Pallet and I’ll have a tutorial on this desk wall soon.
The closet got painted the ceiling color (Behr Queens Violet) and got some leftover wall paper on the sides. I reinstalled the shelving and tried to return way fewer things than it housed before.
This corner got the cutest thrifted chair, a plant in a clearance basket and the awesome lights and print. I love how they coordinate so well with each other. The print is so bold and will grow with the girls which makes me happy. The colors couldn’t have been more perfect in here.
I thrifted the big mirror, gave it a coat of paint and nailed it to the wall on a stained piece of wood screwed into the studs. It’s a heavy beast and I didn’t want to worry about it coming off of the wall. It does a great job of reflecting light and the cuteness of the other walls.
The Hunter ceiling fan from Destination Lighting was the very last thing to go in. It’s large and in charge and I love it. I did, however, have to change out the basket pendant light in the window because the one I had before just competed with it a little too much.
The shelves were so fun to stage. I decorated them kind of like you do a Christmas tree with a toddler in the house. The higher stuff is for the grown ups: the hubby’s books, pretty plants and breakables.
I used lots of what we already had for the shelves. I thrifted a few baskets and trays to fill them in a little.
The rug and rug pad underneath are from Nuloom. It is so soft and beautiful. It’s busy and dark enough to hide the wear and tear of a playroom. I could not be happier with how it looks and how it ties the rest of the room together.
Just as a reminder, here is the before:
and after from the same spot:
For grins, here’s the to do list:
patch holes and paint ceiling and walls and closet build platforms for bookcases and bed prime and paint built ins wallpaper built in wall around window build IKEA bookcases trim built ins make roman shades paint art table diy lazy susan for art supplies paint bar stools stain toy crates and desk top create desk and desk wall sew day bed pillows diy large wall art diy pendant light install ceiling fan organize toy storage/ donate all the toys ; ) hang artwork stage the shelves with toys, books and plants
make the room look amazing with thrifted finds, etsy goodness and DIY’s galore
I’m so happy to finally share these playroom renovation ideas with you and to finally be done! My sweet husband worked so hard on so many parts of the room. Thank you, mister. Thanks mom, for helping me with the wallpaper and for being a caulking queen. Thanks to my friends who have listened to me talk about this room for the last few months… It’s done y’all!
A final thank you to the sponsors that made this room happen. Lets be real, if you hadn’t helped, the room wouldn’t look like this. It would be the close-the-door-and-ignore room it used to be. I’m so grateful to you for giving me a chance!
Make sure and check on other guest participant room reveals here and check out the featured designer rooms here. All of the tutorials and projects for this room will be posted in the near future. I hope you’ll come back!

The built-in turned out amazing!!! Seriously, so good. I'm also really loving the desk setup! And, I've been wanting to do a similar photo frame to mat size, so I'm loving that as well!
It really looks amazing. I love the color scheme. You are so talented.
Thanks Ashley! I love the giant frames on that wall and I'm glad you like the desk. The girls love it!
Thank you Momma! Love you
this is awesome, jessica! it's functional and beautiful and fun all at once. so perfect for your girls!
I love this room so much, Jessica! You did a fantastic job! Congratulations!
It turned out so great! I think you should probably not let your girls play in it so that they don't mess it up 😉
Thank you so much Cassie! I think it will really grow with them.
Thank you!!!! I love it so much. : )
I think you're so right! I have to remind myself it's for them… 😉
It is a gorgeous playroom! It is so cheerful. I hope the girls just love it.
Thank you Stacy! They do!! They actually try and keep it clean too so that's a plus. : )
Loving the colors in here, the built-ins look so good! Your girls are so lucky to have such a great play space!
There are so many amazing little moments in here! Love the little hooks for artwork, the light (how cool is the purple cord?!), the thrifted chair and that rug! Such a gorgeous, happy room!
Wow Jessica!! It looks amazing! Awesome work!!
Thank you so much! We've all enjoyed the room. So blessed.

Thank you Kathy!! It was lots of fun and it's a million times better now. Love y'all!
It turned out so good! I love how good you made purple look!
Ahhhh! Absolutely fabulous, friend! It's nearly impossible to choose a favorite part, but I'm tied between the wallpaper and the painted ceiling! I love this space so much and your girls are going to have so much fun in here! The details are all perfect!
Love it…. everything about it! Especially the rug, plant by the closet, yippee picture, the wallpaper!, and the plants. So pretty!
You KILLED it! This wallpaper looks so good here! The entire space is so whimsical! I love it!
Thank you Emy! It was such a fun room and I'm so thankful for it.

Thank you Jess! I Love the wallpaper so much! Thanks for your inspiration, friend.
this is such a fun space! I love it!
Thank you! It's been great and loved so far!
Awesome makeover!!!!!! I love what you did with this room, and it can grow with your kids. The daybed area with the styled shelves is utterly charming. The desk and table offer variety for reading, studying, art projects, etc. — But, my favorite thing might be the collection of "dress up" clothes in the little closet — how cute! Fabulous job on this room!
I love, love, love this space and if I could lift it up and move it into my house for my girls, I would do it in a heartbeat!! I don't know where to being, but that wallpaper in that nook is perfect, and I love the table, desks, and the artwork display so much!
THank you so much!! It was such a fun room to makeover and it's so sweet to be in there now. So thankful.
Thank you Jenny! I'm so happy with how it turned out. Best of all? It's pretty even when it's a mess. : )
