Our Home's Work & Play Spaces

Hello and Welcome!
I am so excited to be sharing our work and play spaces today as part of the 
Blogger Stylin' Home Tours hosted by Lindsay at The White Buffalo Styling Co.  I seriously feel like I get to hang out with the cool kids today, these gals all have such stylish homes. The tour will be running all week. You can start at the beginning by clicking here.

If you are already following along on the tour, then you are probably stopping by from With Heart. What a sweet playroom, right? 

At the end of this post I will share where to head to next.
So lets get started! First I'll show you where the work happens and then we'll move on to the fun part and I'll show you where we like to play.



 Our home office is located off of the living room through a pair of french doors. I'll sometimes refer to this room as 'the sunroom' because of all of the windows in here.  


 This old desk is where I sit down and blog from, and lets be honest, I don't consider blogging work, so this really is My play room :)


 I don't have a name for the style in the room, but it has a kind of coastal / lake living / boat house vibe to it.


I just have so much fun playing around with home decor. This room has taken on lots of different looks throughout the seasons. I'm always changing things up around our home, it's what I do. Are you the same way? 


The daybed in the room is one of my favorite places to lounge; read a magazine, take a nap, and hang out on while my boys play Minecraft on the computer.


I like to fill the daybed up with pillows. The two indigo shibori inspired ones are new and you can find a tutorial on how I made them Here.



My favorite thing right now is air plants.  I've created a whole display of them on my grandma's old trunk that works as a coffee table in the room.


I posted more about my air plants here.


One last thing in the room that I want to share with you is this string art on the wall. I created it one day using a hammer, some small nails, a level, and gray yarn.  I think it looks so cool. You can find my instructions on how I did it over at City Farmhouse Here.


Now lets head outside to our Play House!


 Having two boys, this play house/Fort was an added bonus when buying our home. It made it feel right, like it was meant to be ours.


Last week I re-painted this fort which made it look so much better.  I plan to share a before and after of it sometime soon, so be sure to stop back over if you would like to see more. 


Even though it's a fort for my boys, I took advantage of the covered patio part of it and created a relaxing spot for the whole family to enjoy.  I brought in two wicker chairs, and then I created a coffee table by using a large wicker plant holder and placed a trash can lid on top of it.  My family may have made fun of me for it, but I think it works great for setting down a drink.



Next to the fort is a sandbox. Playing in the sandbox is one of my favorite things to do with my boys.  I love playing in the sand, it's so relaxing and if I close my eyes I can pretend that I'm at the beach.



I still plan to add some toy bins to the upstairs of the fort to hold water guns, bubbles and other outdoor toys. . .  And luckily, I'm still allowed up there.


 How great is this sign that my son, Liam created? He made it and hung it up all on his own. That's my boy!


 Thank You so much for stopping by,  I hope you've enjoyed my Work and Play spaces!

Next up on the tour is my dear friend, Cassie at Primitive and Proper. I can't wait to see what she has to share with us. So head on over with me, lets go check it out!
