I've slowly been finishing up the playroom.
Unfortunately, Slowly is the key word for every project around here!
I showed you the Dress Up Station last week --
so this week, I thought I'd show you the art station!
I pulled it together for less than $40 --
and it doesn't take up any floor space --
so if you don't have a playroom, no worries --
you could put this anywhere you have some walls!
(like a hallway, upstairs foyer, kitchen island, etc!)
So here it is:
The playroom Art Center!
and here are the details -- in case you're interested! :)
The white dry-erase board is from Hobby Lobby ($12.99 + 40% off coupon). The blue board is a magnetic chalkboard! I purchased an oil drip pan for $8 at an auto store - then used clean metal primer ($7 Home Depot) and Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint (Michaels $5.99 + 40% off coupon) to make it pretty! They are both attached to the wall with 3M Command strips - and so far (2-3 months with a LOT of toddler boy abuse), they are holding up great!
Command hooks and a dollar aisle pail hold the dry erase crayons & chalk!
Above that, I have a place to display all his artwork!!
This magnetic strip came from Ikea. It was originally orange but a little spray paint fixed that! I found these large clothespins on clearance at Michaels (.25) and just hot glued a magnet to the back. Wild Man LOVES to hang his art up there - so everyone can see! :) He's already so proud, it's cute!
I'll post a tutorial soon - but they were both finger painted by Wild Man.
Then I just framed the canvas! :)
So there you have it -- another section of the playroom! :)
and definitely one of the favorites! :)
Now if only I could be motivated to finish the trim.
So what do you think??
What's your favorite part?
What am I forgetting?
