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.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
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.
