Every once in a while I come across an idea I can't get out of my head. I read this blog post a few weeks ago from Trina McNeilly of La La Lovely about turning an unused space in her home into a playroom. It is so important to make your home work for you and your family! Read below:
welcome to my dining room. i mean playroom. about a year ago, i decided to turn my dining room into a playroom. yes, we have a playroom in the basement but no one ever wanted to be down there. and, of course, i wasn’t able to always go sit down there with the little ones. so, one day, it dawned on me, why not, for a few years, turn the dining room into a playroom? we didn’t use the dining room, that often, and we really didn’t have to make any major changes. and the great thing about it is, that when the time comes to turn it back, there won’t be much to it.
to change things, we gave the room some fresh paint, took the dishes out of the hutch and exchanged them for toys, hung a few shelves and let the same fancy chandelier do its thing and shine some magic into the space.
