I have posted this room’s before pictures here. While it was not so bad then, there were a lot of things that I wish we had and did not have. For one, sometimes the room used to look like Toy Kingdom meets Payatas.
I have edited and edited and edited this room so that
1) Aki won’t get overstimulated anymore
2) Clean up will be easier for Aki and for us
3) The color motif, green and blue, would be more obvious
4) The Filipino theme would be somewhat noticeable
Without further ado, welcome to Aki’s playroom!
This room is really small. I can’t imagine putting a bed here. Maybe, Aki will sleep beside me until he is ready to move out when he is 35. Tee hee.
This is the most inviting room in the house. Literally.
Remember the fence shelf that I got from the Asiacraft Warehouse sale? I had it painted using chalkboard paint ( ordinary paint with grout). I am actually a bit disappointed with how it turned out. I thought the grout will make the color lighter. I also did not check if the paint that I bought was glossy. There was a chalkboard paint available but I opted to DIY it because the whole galloon costs 500 bucks. I only needed 1/5th of that amount. Anyhoo, the good thing is that the Aki can now draw on the sides of his toy shelf.
After the toy decluttering that I did last month, these are the only ones that I decided should stay. Some toys are in my in-laws. Some are in Aki’s 2nd playroom. The rest which are mostly age inappropriate are in the guest room.
Aki’s cutest baby onesies hang above the toy shelf.
Here are the native horsie horsies, more toys and Aki’s kiddie rocking chair with the monogram pillow that I made.
The reading nook. Earlier this week, I blogged about those cardboard bookcases .
My favorite details – our Filipino toy collection. Will blog about it as soon as I have the time.
Before you go, say hello to Aki’s shoes. I like looking at them because they remind me of how much my boy has grown.
I hope you enjoyed the room tour. It still is a work in progress. I hoping to put some frames above the cabinet. I also want to change the onesies with something else. I also want to hang something interesting in the ceiling. Not a mobile. Maybe some eye catching lamp or maybe pom-poms.
til next time!
