KatieEclectic Kids, New York

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.

    Also curious of the hight and width. Looks similar to a space where I could put a bedroom for my children.

    I would love to know where I can find the wallpaper. What brand and where to find? Can anyone help me with this?

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.

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.
