Dreaming of a playroom....

Hi Bloggerettes!  You guys sure know how to make a girl feel better.  You are all so encouraging and sweet.  Thank you  from the bottom of my heart. (smooch!)

You know ever since I was a little girl I've always wanted a playroom where I could create and be surrounded by all the things that I love.  And now I finally have one.   If you will remember  I mentioned that my son had moved out of the bonus room and into the guest bedroom downstairs.  This gave me the gigantic 500 square foot bonus room to use however I wanted.  So, why not make it a combination guest room and play room for moi! Yes!

It's a work in progress.  Right now only the basics are there.  The beds, the rug, a few tables.  No pictures or accessories.  I'm still working on it.  Things are kinda piled up everywhere!


It's a great place for me to hang and display all my pretty wedding gowns and party dresses....I love collecting these pretties....

I bought a metal clothes rack and hung a few on there and decided it looked pretty darn good.

The twin sleigh bed from one of the guest rooms has been set up...

The queen size bed has been set up and fluffed....
It still needs a head board and I'm still searching for the right one. The big window sure could use something.  I'm thinking of a bedcrown with flowing sheer fabric.

I pulled this vanity table and chair from my booth to use in the playroom.
I'll also be setting up my sewing and work space up here too.

Just think.  We could have a pajama party sleepover and play dressup!

I'll keep you posted on the progress.  It's going to be fun!

~~hugs~
Sissie

What a sweet space! And so YOU! It's great that you can have a space to use as both a guest room as well as a playroom.

What a lucky chickie you are! FIVE hundred square feet? That's 1/3 of my whole darn house!..... I'd be thrilled to bits. Every time the neighbor's house goes up for rent I wish I could afford it so I could have an entire house for my "playroom".... Don't think that's going to happen anytime soon though.........

Love all your fluff and girlie stuff...

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Very pretty, Sissie! Love all those dresses ~ they look so beautiful. This is such a nice big space, too. I've been thinking of a bed crown in our master. Even though I have the headboard, I feel like it could use a little something else.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Sissie this would be every little girls "DREAM" playroom!! Those dresses are beautiful!

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Sissie, oh that every girl could have a room as lovely as this one. I know it will be beautiful when you put final magical touches to it. I think the sleep over and dress up party sounds fun--- hope I'm invited. Heehee. You certainly are invited to my party on Tues. Hope you can join in and show some of your beautiful things.---------- Shannon

CHERI said...

I'm so envious of all that space:) I thought I was going to have my special room too once my son grew up...but then along came grandkids and now they each have claimed their own bedroom here. I do have a little area in my grandson's room but I need MUCH MORE SPACE!!!!

Cindy@Cutepinkstuff said...

No way! 500 feet of feminine creativity at your fingertips! Good for you. Oh to have a space to fill with only frills! When's the slumber party? LOL. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my sleepy blog. I used to have more commenters, but I guess that's what I get for not posting regularly and visiting blogland more often. Sissy, you're a faithful commenter!

Sherry said...

Your space sounds wonderful. I have a room for creating that I love but it iw much smaller. I know you will make it a beautiful inviting room and have fun doing it.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Bonnie@ The Hopeless Romantic said...

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Sissie! You have SOOO been holding out on me!!! I didn't realize that you had a collection of wedding gowns! LOVE THEM! Promise me that you'll add some pics of them to my next Wedding Blog Party in June!! So happy that you are getting a new "rumpus" room. I wanna come play.....

Lucille said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the realization of your dream room come true, Sissie! It will be a splendid room judging from all the lovely accessories you have.

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

Oh, Sissie, you lucky girl! What a great room to play in! I love the ceiling. The window must be a dormer? And your rack of wedding dresses! Truly devine!

I used to have a little dressing table like that. Mom made a big full skirt. I remember the skirt was on "arms" that you opened to reveal a drawer. I wish I had it today!

Have fun and keep us posted on how your room evolves!
♥ Jil
