It’s done! I recently shared my design board idea for the kids’ playroom. Now that we have a 21, 18, 16 and 10 yr. old the playroom is their to-go hangout space. But it was needing a more grown up facelift. I stepped out of my pale coastal color palette comfort zone and dove head first into deep navy blue, crisp sailcloth white and warm weathered driftwood tones, of course with just the right amount of nautical accents. Come see our Nautical Media Room Makeover.
Here is a before pic of the playroom. The room was pretty but we were all ready for a change and that carpet was getting gross and had to go. The color of the walls in this pic is Atmospheric by Benjamin Moore.
We ripped out the carpet and replaced it with gorgeous, durable, 100% waterproof, luxury vinyl plank flooring from Floor & Decor. We are so thrilled with the flooring, I can’t even tell you! Click the link for a step by step tutorial on How to Install Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring.
We painted the walls in Naval by Sherwin Williams. Our walls have a very textured scroll pattern and are a pain to paint. We put white canvas slip covers over the brown leather love seats. They look so crisp and clean against the navy blue walls. And we added a new coffee table.
I especially love how the driftwood sunburst mirror looks up here in the media room/rec room, teen pad, whatever we are calling it.
The coffee table is perfect for playing games on. A fun game that looks fabulous on the table is my DIY Coastal TIC-TAC-TOE game board complete with starfish “X’s” and sand dollar “O’s”. (Click the link for the step by step tutorial). Isn’t it adorable?
Just a few more nautical accents were added, like a driftwood garland, sailboat, glass floats and crab cage wire lantern.
The navy blue makes the palladium windows pop!
I really love how my DIY Shell Specimen Art looks on the Naval walls.
The easy to make DIY Wood Bead Strand looks fabulous draped over vintage glass floats.
I wanted to buy these shibori framed prints for a year now but didn’t have a spot for them. This room is the perfect location! A nautical media room makeover required an update on the media console. I gave the media console a fresh coat of white paint.
And to soften up the flooring I found this awesome woven denim ombre rug.
I hope you like our nautical media room makeover! It is ready for XBox gaming, movie nights, relaxation and FUN! Let the festivities begin!
