Are you looking for playroom inspiration without breaking the bank? Come tour our playroom and see how we designed our playroom on a budget!
I’m so excited to finally show you guys Lincoln and Goldie’s playroom! When we bought this house, we wanted it to be the most functional for our family. So we decided to make our 4th bedroom a playroom, rather than a guest room. I love having all the kids’ toys and activities housed in one place. And not even gonna lie….I love not seeing it in my living room anymore!
The Playroom Layout
I really like the concept of defined spaces, so I wanted to make sure there were special areas in the playroom for different activities:
- Exploring (toys, play kitchen, pretend play)
- Creating (art supplies, Playdough, etc)
This helps my toddler stay organized and keeps me from finding a random chunk of Playdough stuck between the pages of a book. Toddler moms, ya feel me.
I went back and forth so many times with colors and decor but ultimately decided on bright colors (yellows, pinks, purples, and blues) with grays and whites to balance it out. I was able to get my hands on some GREAT items to design this playroom on a budget. I’ll link those under the photos!
I love how it turned out and love being in there just as much as my kids!

teepee* | toy storage cubby** | storage bins | pom-pom banner*** | gray and white striped curtains**** | bookshelves*****
*I love this teepee from Hippococo! It’s huge, durable, and super easy to put together. The poles come in two colors: gray or pink.
**My hubby picked this one up from Dirt Cheap for only $30!
***This was a SUPER easy DIY that you can find over here.
****The curtains pictured actually came in a 2 pack for $12 at Walmart! I can’t find them online but have linked some similar.
llama prints | 11×14 frames* | cactus succulent** | cotton rope baskets
*Pro tip: These frames came from Hobby Lobby with different artwork displayed. They were 90% off, and I JUST wanted the frames…so it was a major steal. If you’re looking for frames, Hobby Lobby clearance is a great place to start. Don’t pay attention to the artwork that’s displayed…that can be removed.
**$5 during Michael’s 50% off sale
wall decals | table and chairs* | giant frame** | art storage rail and containers | easel***
*This table and chairs set is from B.Toys and I. AM. IN. LOVE. It gives the room a little stylish flair and it’s SO easy to clean, because….paint.
**This was a total freebie that probably held some giant piece of canvas art at one time. If you’re looking for something similar, you can try scouting out your local Goodwill or Salvation Army.
***Snagged this at Salvation Army for $8!
