I get wild hairs every so often to re-do things in my house. This is part of the joy of owning our home; I get to rip down walls, paint, build, etc.
Here is a video from when I reorganized and added a playhouse to our 5 foot wide X 13 foot long playroom. Our home is an old 1900 home and this area used to be a porch – is all we can think of. Odd shape, so we turned it into a playroom. Works perfectly! I just showed hubby this picture that I found online of a playroom loft:
Our kids are 2 and 4 1/2. Tucker (4 1/2) has his ‘quiet time’ (movie just before bedtime) in the playroom, so this room is a must have for our house. I am looking to make room, save room, create room in our house for toys, bins, books and whatever the kids need. I am currently taking measurements for me to BUILD a playroom loft just like this one, minus the doors on the house under the bed. This part will remain open and the kids’ kitchen will be moved from the entry way, in to the playroom, under the loft area. Everything in the playroom has a place, a bin, a shelf. I think this loft would help organize it even more!
Wish me luck! I think I can get this entire thing built for right around $50, if not less! I hope to start on it this weekend.
