Redesigning Our Trenches- The Playroom

When we first moved in to our house over 9 years ago while I was pregnant with Eldest, we converted the front office room into a playroom.  And it looked like this:

Eventually, we added a door in the left corner in order to circulate the heat from the living room woodstove more efficiently:

But the boyz keep getting older.  (Hi.  I'm Captain Obvious.)  And their playroom became a bit babyish.  It was time for a change.  Now, I am no Martha Stewart.  Nor am I Ty Pennington.  I do not have a decorating-ish bone in my body.  But luckily I have a mother and a sister who do!


 Et voila!  The boyz' new and improved mature playroom (is that an oxymoron?):
I'm thrilled with how it turned out!  And I absolutely positively can't thank my Mom and my Sis enough for all the help.

(The boyz' names are on the wall in red wooden letters - that's what I've scribbled out.  But how many of you don't actually know their real names?)

Too funny! We have that same (Home Depot) wall paper border in HRH's room! The room we decorated when he was 2 and being kicked out of the nursery to make way for his baby brother.

I was just looking at it yesterday and thinking it was a little immature. I will cry when I take it down though...

Love how you took the time to carefully edit the names out of the pictues.

The room looks great. Now, can they keep it that way?????

I love the way this turned out! We're redoing our playroom too right now, so this post caught my eye over at SITS.
