Have you ever seen a closet with steps? This weird feature made it less useful as a storage space, but Aimee's toddlers were enthralled. So she decided to turn it into playroom, for just a little over $100:
Plastic rain gutters on the back wall serve as book shelves. Homemade cushions soften the giant steps. Cheap Ikea frames with free printables were an affordable wall art solution. The other wall has a felt board and magnetic chalkboard - made with a metal oil drip pan and chalkboard paint.
Since this is a rental, and my kids don't appreciate nice things, I set a pretty tight budget. All told, I spent $119 on this project, which made everyone pretty happy. The best part of this space though? My kids LOVE playing in here. It's their own little fort, and provides hours of entertainment.

Thank you Aimee!
