16 Before-and-After Room Makeovers
A 16-foot-long wall provides enough cubbies for each toy, marker, and paintbrush to have a home. A “hanging gallery” made from strung curtain wire encourages constant rotation of paintings and provides an inexpensive and sturdy way to showcase children’s masterpieces. Three different areas for creating are carved out: the art area, the worktable, and the reading nook—a cozy place with a bookcase stocked full of favorites, good lighting, and cuddle-worthy seating. Window shades are in a soothing robin’s-egg blue.
