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.

Although I didn't design this space I recognize the rug used, it's from ikea circa 2010. I used this same rug in my son's first apartment .......it's so great !!
I don't see it on their web site any longer ......bummer !

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Unearth Your Attic
AFTER: There are two other bedrooms on the main floor of the house, but O'Hagan saw the attic's potential as a perfect hideaway for her girls. "The stairs are really steep but manageable," she says. "This suits my daughters fine, as they're too steep for the dog to get upstairs and eat their stuff."
Warm with texture. Kids' rooms can be playful spaces, so have fun exploring with patterns. “Fun patterns and textures can add a lot to a space,” says Umansky. The rainbow-colored rug in this spirited attic bedroom complements a polka dot two-tone pattern on the wall.
