From closet to playroom

In our Hamptons home I converted this basement level closet into a playroom for my children. This image was taken during the demolition. The back wall was replaced with drywall, a ceiling was installed, the carpet was removed and the doorway widened to create a cozy and fun spot for little ones to play.   
My kids are loving their new space! Simple, organized and functional! 
The Dalmatian hanger is perfect for my son's fireman costume. Cute, right? Notice the Ikea dog tail hook? I hung six on "her side" and six on "his side" when you enter to the playroom providing an practical place to hang their costumes. 
Sometimes good things come in smaller packages! Happy Monday!

So cute. Having a place that kids can call their own is so important.

So cute. You know how I love the book displays......lucky little ones you have! Love the idea for costumes. Maddies are in plastic bins but it would be more fun to see them out!

Would love to be able to stick my teenage boys in a closet... but they needed a whole garage! Oh well, at least I can't hear the drum set. Love your sweet and functional touches, Lisa.
xxoo

This. Is. Genius. I am inspired by the magic you've worked, and hopefully our small basement area will one day look 1/2 as great and be 1/2 as functional for my 2 boys. Thanks for showing that you don't need acres of space to make a great room for kids!

XOXOXO

The dalmation thing is really creative. I really felt bad for you and your family having to go through remodel stress. Our kitchen has been done for months now but I still feel traumatized.
