Who doesn’t love a hidden room? The adult in us, even, is still drawn to this children’s play room that’s just a short step through an unassuming armoire:

The home’s owner found the old armoire secondhand. He then hired a woodworker to take out the back and install it up against a doorway into his children’s play room. The result is a simple-enough-looking armoire that opens to a hidden room of magic and play. We love this idea because A. it would be so fun and B. it’s a great way to literally hide away playtime clutter. See more of this awesome project at Maple Seed Renovation.
