Katie eclectic-kids


Turned attic storage space into two bedrooms for my kids. Did it all myself so it cost around $120 in paint and polyurethane, $15 in sandpaper for the floors, around $8 for spackle and wood filler, and $15 for trim. A couple of dollars for plastic to cut out polka dot templates. Used pieces of old sheet-rock to patch holes in the walls, so well under $200 for everything. Turned a closet into a little reading room. There are some before shots taken before I bought the house.

This is amazing! Would you mind sharing the sq. footage and ceiling height?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Also curious of the hight and width. Looks similar to a space where I could put a bedroom for my children.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Unearth Your Attic
AFTER: The sleeping spaces are separated by a door, and the girls share a closet. To cut down on clutter, O'Hagan has the girls store their toys and craft supplies in the basement. A skylight in each room and a window at either end of the space let in plenty of natural light. O'Hagan, an artist, painted the polka dots by hand.
Samantha Schoech added this to Attic Bedrooms Rise and Shine
Take advantage of those odd pipes and chimneys that might need to pass through by incorporating them into the design. Painting this sewer pipe lemon yellow makes it a fun part of this bright, playful kids' room.

Painted pipe--like incorporating into room instead of hiding it. Maybe use magnetic paint and can stick cars or pics to it.
