This week I started working on the focal piece of the room. Since this space is the first thing you see when you walk in the front door, I wanted it to stand out beyond just being a playroom. I was inspired by Alena’s arch wall feature and wanted to do something similar.
Once I had my color, it was time to prep my space. I used this handy tutorial for drawing my arch, and it worked perfectly.
I used an angled brush to carefully paint the arch and used a roller to do the rest. Two coats of paint and it was done by the end of the weekend.
Toddler approved. 👍🏼 Next steps for the arch include putting a little planter shelf or two up top.
I ordered her table and chairs, which should be arriving within the next week or two. The shelf I want from IKEA is currently out of stock everywhere, so I’m hoping it will come back within the next few weeks. If not, I’ll have to decide how badly I want it and come up with a plan b.
Everything else seems to be coming together quite nicely for this space, so I just might have time to give the kitchen set a little DIY spruce. We shall see!
