Farmhouse Playroom Update With Chalk Paint

, , ,

Howdy, buddies!

Okay okay, I know what you’re thinking.  “Didn’t she JUST redo this playroom a few months ago…?!”
And the answer is YES.
I tried to love all black and white.
And…for my home, I didn’t love it.
And…the rug got stained beyond repair.
So I moved this carpet tile rug in here.
And then nothing worked anymore.
And so…I busted out my chalk paint!!

For this project, I used the chalk paint sprayer from Amy Howard [HERE] to update the kids’ metal daybed, the wooden letters up top, and a couple of other items in the space.  I used the color Credenza from Amy Howard [HERE] which is a creamy, pale mix between robin’s egg blue and green/grey.  SUCH a pretty color!
(I also used the color on this vintage dresser project!)

I was interested in trying out this chalk paint sprayer, because other sprayers I’ve used with regular paint are SO heavy.  This one is actually pretty lightweight comparatively, and it did a nice job creating an even spray on all of the items.  The only issue I had was a bit of bubbling when I held the sprayer in one spot for too long.  The bubbles went away pretty quickly before they could dry, but I should have kept things going in a continuous motion…instead of getting distracted by a wayward squirrel chirping at me for being too close to the fallen pecans.  😳 πŸ˜‚  The only other thing I’d mention is that the sprayer says it’s made specifically for Amy Howard chalk paint, so not sure if other brands can/should be used with it?  Couldn’t hurt to try as most chalk paint seems to be of similar consistency, but just FYI.

Overall, I was pretty darn happy with the results!  The soft, creamy, pale blue/grey/green of Amy Howard’s Credenza color speak to my soul, and I’m glad I kept a few black metal touches in here, too.  A little bit modern farmhouse, a little bit cozy cottage, and a whole lotta playing!

Raise your hand if you think this area stayed styled like this after the pics for more than three minutes…?
Yeah.
My hand isn’t up either.

    I love it!! I can’t wait until we move into a house that we can have a playroom. Right now our toddler’s toys are all in the living room, so we try to keep it as organized as possible, but I would love a place devoted just to play!
    Yours came out beautiful! 😊

  3. What a perfect space for your four little beauties : )

  4. That’s a fabulous playroom! And so organized. Your kiddies are lucky to have such a cool mama!! Love it all.
