Good morning friends!! I am so excited to show you this reading nook/playhouse I have created for my kids in the closet underneath our stairs! I think it’s my favorite spot in our house right now!
When we looked at this house and I saw the mini closet I immediately knew my kids would love that area and I was right. As soon as we moved in they started bringing in toys and books and playing down there. And since it’s right next to the kitchen started ordering room service! ha
My husband thought I was kind of nutty for creating this right next to the dining room, but I think it’s fun…
Welcome to “The Club” as my kids call it!
Right before we moved to Fresno I hustled to Ikea to buy this canopy for $10 knowing it would be great here…
We love everything Dr. Seuss, so I wanted to incorporate some colorful Seuss inspired details.
The focal point is this bookshelf I stenciled with red paint and my Royal Designs Studio stencil. It did take me a couple hours to do this tiny wall, but I love the outcome! I did a tutorial with this very stencil on another project here.
I love the red and turquoise so much!
Last week I showed you how I made my Dr. Seuss wall art
by cutting up these dollar bin bags and wrapping them around square canvases.
They are so inexpensive and create such a big impact. The READ letters are from Joann’s and I painted them with craft paint.
My husband brought a random white board home from work years ago and I spray painted it along with this little holder from the thrift store. It was bronze before I painted it!
I brought a roll of chalkboard adhesive from Hobby Lobby with me and used some on the doors.
(I already of Hobby Lobby withdrawals….ugh the closest one is 90 min away!) Boo..
Can you believe the window boxes are just one box cut in half and then spray painted?! They are hung with command strips. I had a few flowers already in the garage so this project turned out to be things I already had! Love when that happens….
Ok I am especially proud of these box shelves from Hobby Lobby. On my last trip there I found these for 90% off. So I paid $5 each. They are $50 full price!!!! They were however a little banged up so I used a red sharpie to fill in a few nicks,,,,
My daughter loves Oliva
This was a fun project. I painted a canvas black then used a white paint pen to trace my Wimpy Kid image.
Here’s a fun post on how to draw him. My son loves these books and has started to draw him too! I’m glad they have their own special shelf…By the way I scored the set for a buck each at a garage sale. Yay!
Also the pencil bookends are from my childhood. Thanks mom for saving stuff like that!
I found a home for the rainbow wreath I made for my daughter’s last rainbow themed birthday….
The magnetic board is from Ikea.
This is her favorite area!
The seating are two chairs we had…I do hope to score a good deal on a bean bag soon..
Thanks for stopping by “The Club”…My daughter squealed “Is this all for us?”….So I think I impressed her a little.
I love this area because it’s a great use of things I already had and a few new bargains!
Have a beautiful day! Thanks for stopping by…
