I thought I’d share with you all the mini-makeover we gave the entrance to the children’s library. Our children’s room is in the basement and sometimes it can seem like a maze of doors trying to find it. I often see people walking around, looking lost. Plus, all of the walls are painted white, white, and more white. Something had to be done.
I forgot to take “before” pictures, but this is basically what it looked like:
For about $20 (and a little elbow grease) this is what we have now:
We took the doors down and made a fun “Children’s” sign using scrapbook paper. The blue posts are cardboard carpet tubes (free from our local carpet store.) I spray painted them with a coat of primer and two coats of color. They cover up the hinges nicely, while adding some much needed color.
My melted crayon art made a reappearance here as well:
You definitely can’t miss the Children’s Library now! And it’s stroller-friendly. Success!
