This March we bought a new house that hadn't been updated since the 70's...and not in a cool way  Sad
We decided to add a bedroom where the old formal living room was which left us with an odd space between our kid's rooms. So we turned it into a playroom/ kid art studio.

First I painted the main wall white and used paint markers to make frames, then accented with the green and blue from the opposite wall.

I striped the wall opposite the frames, and painted the remaining walls blue.

My 13 month old son, Red, crafting away!

I used shower curtains for curtains

I tape the artwork up high and down below the kids can color in the frames.

I used an over the door shoe organizer to hold art supplies.

here's a quick before pic.

(those orbs are just dust, not ghosts Smiley )

I ended up opening a home daycare and this room works great for the kids!
