Playroom: Finished!

Well, except maybe curtains, but other than that… ta da! I’m not sure this can count as an OPAM as I started the wallpaper stripping project in October and I literally just finished putting together the cork board frames today. I am SOOO happy with how it turned out and it is now one of my favorite rooms in the house.

The frames on the ledges are just frames I had and I painted them with acrylic paint. The large ones (8×10 and up) I put 5/8″ cork board in (purchased at JoAnn in the painting/fine art department on a 4’x2′ roll and staple gunned the back.
