Our playroom is probably the most well used room in the house. The walls have been bashed with toy hammers, crashed into with cars and trucks and ‘decorated’ with felt pen and stickers. It was such a mess that I’d pretty much given up trying to keep it tidy. We were desperate for more playroom storage.
It was the first room I thought of when MoneySuperMarket asked if I’d like £50 to makeover a room, as part of their #RoomForImprovement
Dulux Once Paint and rollers £25
Storage boxes – £10
Total – £47
First we removed the blinds from the window as we never used them and they looked scruffy, then we took down all the kids artwork which they’d helpfully blu-tacked to the walls and put it into a keepsake box for them.
We then painted the walls, minimising as much as possible what pictures we put back up.
Then I completely re-organised the craft storage with the new boxes and put up some pegs in the corner for fancy dress clothes. I’m hoping to get a funky toy box for this corner to store the role play toys.
What do you think? I’m so pleased, it feels like the room has been completely revamped and for very little cost.
I am forever tidying & decluttering the playroom….where does all the crap come from! Love the hooks…I need an area for dressing up too as it’s just hidden away in a box.
I don’t know where it comes from. x
What a change! It’s been really good motivation to have a jolly good sort through everything hasn’t it?
Love what you’ve done – it looks much bigger now!
Thank you. x
It’s amazing what you can do for £50 looks fab. Love the peg idea for dressing up clothes. We have some lovely ones now but it’s hard to know what to do with them x
Thanks Karen. x
That looks fabulous, you must be so pleased with it all. Amazing how a challenge like this can make you focus your attention isn’t it? We’ve done our back porch for the £50 and I can’t believe I didn’t do it before. Now I’m wondering what other rooms we can do!
Can you come and do mine next?!
