playroom reveal

I am SO EXCITED to finally show y’all a finished spot in our home! As you know, we are big fans of Pottery Barn Kids and we worked with them to make this space a special one for our boys. I fell in love with their Modern Baby line and as soon as we started picking pieces from the playroom collection, the rest of the room fell into place. The morning light in here is so good- perfect for play! Sharing lots of pictures, info, and sources below…

About the space:

I wanted this area to be a place that both boys could enjoy- safe for Boone once he’s on the move soon, with lots of learning and educational focus for Bear now that he’s in kindergarten. The Pottery Barn Kids bookrack and bookshelf both mount to the wall and are extremely sturdy, which checked the boxes on our safety concerns. I think my favorite part of the room, and Bear’s too, is the reading nook/teepee area. He loves to lay in there and read books he pulls off of the Sloan Bookrack, which is the perfect place to keep seasonal/favorite books on rotation.

I knew I wanted to put black and white stripes somewhere in our house, and this seemed like the best spot to have fun with them. I feel like that’s a design element that never goes out of style, and the Pottery Barn Kids pieces are timeless as well. And now that I’m thinking bout it, the Evo Rug may actually be my favorite part of the room. I can’t believe how much it brightens up the space and really makes the room- plus the quality is amazing. I couldn’t even begin to lift it on my own! It’s super durable which is just what we need with two little boys. We also need lots of storage options with all the toy trucks, cars, dinosaurs, etc. we have, and PBK has the cutest storage bins right now. I need to order more of these silver ones soon as our toy collection seems to just continue to grow (thank you, grandparents!).

The Hug Life sign is another thing I couldn’t pass up- it especially looks cool by night when the room is illuminated by “Hug Life” and the teepee lights. Bear loves hanging out in his playroom at night. I also wanted a way to display Bear’s art- he’s quite the little Picasso- and he proudly pins up his favorite pieces after each coloring session. Boone takes it all in, eager for the day when he’ll be keeping up with big brother. Mommy’s not ready for that quite yet- but I love our afternoons sitting in this room, laughing and coloring and playing pretend pirates. These are some of the best moments of my life- the simple, imperfectly perfect ones with my boys. There’s a reason this room is the first complete one in our new home- it was most important! I know eventually Bear & Boone will outgrow certain toys and games, but I hope this space fosters a love for learning, creativity, and imagination that will live within them always.

Playroom Peek

I've wanted to do a full playroom post for awhile now but still haven't gotten around to taking "legit" photos. All the pictures below were taken via iPhone and you've likely already seen them on instagram (follow us @brittfullwood). But, we are so grateful to everyone that's contributed their time and talent to this room that we want to go ahead and do a preview post!


It's no secret that I'm obsessed with a navy and lime green color palette. It's become increasingly popular but that's not stopping us from going crazy with it. It's just so perfect for little boys (and girls with a pop of pink)!

Not sure why this picture is so grainy, but you can still see the adorable teepee that my Mom and Nana made; we LOVE it! Zach hung some lanterns from the top and we strung festive Christmas lights that will stay up year round. The toy chest doubles as a puppet theatre, and we scored it for $25 on Craigslist. 
The little chairs were painted just this afternoon by Z and I'm obsessed with them. Our good friend, Ann Allen, gave them to Bear and they're perfect for puppet shows!

My mother in law made these precious Pooh paintings and they really complete the room. These are some of our very favorite quotes and hope Bear will appreciate them one day, too :).

The rug came from Ikea and isn't too huge, which we like. It's perfect for a play or game room area. Bear hasn't figured out how to drive cars on it just yet but we have a feeling he'll go crazy with it soon.

Our little rascal has already figured out the whole puppet concept. No fooling Bear!
This picture was taken pre-painted chairs. 

Are you curious about the other half of the room?
That side, or corner really, is actually my little office. It's where all the Logs 'n Lace baby goods come to life! I promise to have a more detailed post in a few weeks.

Hope you are having an amazing weekend! Z's family is here and we're excited to meet up with and see everyone.
Sending big hugs and warm weather your way!




Lately (part two)

More instagram photos from the past week...follow @brittfullwood to keep up with us on the daily :).
--------------------------------------
 
Night walks around the neighborhood lakes are my absolute favorite. It's the only "me" time of my day and while I miss Bear the minute I shut the back door, it's much needed and appreciated (thanks, Z).

We had two birthday parties last Saturday; both happened to be at splash pads and we took full advantage!

Bear's playroom is coming along slowly but surely. This baby boy loves to play!
 
 Sunday mall shopping with Momma is much better with Pinkberry. (better known as PinkBeary in our family)
 
Dinner at Outback always calls for Chocolate Thunder from Down Under. Yes, we eat our fair share of desserts around here :).

 Speaking of desserts, a friend told us that frozen Twizzlers are a teething lifesaver. So far, it's really helped! Bear loves to gnaw on them and they seem to provide some relief for those poor puffy gums.

Favorite polish..."Wild Cactus" by Color Club thanks to Birchbox.

Bear and I got all matchy matchy in nautical stripes for our day with Aunt Beanie on Monday.
 
Which also called for lunch at Wunsche Bros. in Old Town Spring....and chocolate peanut butter pie. And buttermilk pecan pie. And ice cream. And three (Bear included) very full tummies.

My two best friends from college were in town last night and we hit up our favorite spot, Cheesecake Factory. Elissa (on the right) just got engaged and asked Brittney and me to be maid and matron of honor....we are thrilled! Let the planning begin!

Tomorrow is going to be a busy, but exciting, day. We're headed to College Station early in the morning for Texas A&M's first football game of the season, then rushing back to Houston for the BACKSTREET BOYS CONCERT!! Zach is Bear-sitting and I'm going with four very fun, very enthusiastic, girls. Absolutely cannot wait. T-shirts and signs have been made. We will get backstage.

Hope your Labor Day Weekend is a fabulous one!
