We caught up with Mikaela, better known as @mowgliandthebear_, to find out how she chose to style her Playhouse Treasure Board.
What stood out about the Playhouse Treasure Board? Why did you think it best suited your family?
I have been looking for a shelf for Omri’s room for some time. I love the playful and fun nature of the playhouse treasure board. I particularly love that it can be styled and restyled again and again and change as Omri grows, which is why I chose it over a piece of art. I can imagine that the board will be a space where he can express his interests; that it may one day hold dinosaurs or diggers. I also am thinking I will create an event calendar with the board for the boys to count down to Christmas.
Tell us about the assembly of the product— was it difficult to do?
I loved how simple the Treasure Board was to put together. I usually have to wait for my hubby to put things together, but this board required no tools and was almost like a jigsaw. I was able to put it together myself with Kemba handing me each piece easily.
What did you think about the quality of the product?
The Playhouse Treasure Board is very good quality, each piece fits together perfectly. The shelves are stable and each join is neat. It will be a piece that will remain with the boys for their entire childhood.
How did you choose where to place the Treasure Board in your children’s bedroom and how to dress it up?
Omri’s room is quite small so there were only two real spots that would work for placing the treasure board. I got my husband to hold the board up in both places, and we finally decided on its location alongside the other shelving as we felt that it really fit that space well.
Could you share some styling tips with our readers?
At the moment I have styled the treasure board with wooden toys in natural and muted tones that match with the décor and feel of Omri’s room (A combination of pinch toys, captain cash cacti and love tildy). I prefer simple styles of items with similar tones, and empty space rather than crowding.
