make me pretty – our attic playroom

March 20, 2014

When we bought our house the attic was a totally unused space. There weren’t even pull down stairs, just a hole in a closet that you could crawl through to get up there. But it has two windows and I started to think about how cool it would be to turn it into a kids playroom. I imagined that this would be a budget project and it was, except that we ended up buying a spiral stair case to get up there. I originally envisioned a loft ladder type thing but our ceilings are so high that it ended up being too steep and scary.

So we put down plywood floors and covered them with carpet, attached pool noodles to all the low beams and brought up a ton of toys and now it is a little kid paradise!

Here is the before picture and an old blog post with more before and during pictures:
