Kids' Craft Area

Put a fun spin on older furniture.

Sally's daughters, Annie (left), 10, and Holly, 7 use this room everyday. The table and chairs were Sally's old dining set; she gave them a playful twist with colour-blocked white and hot pink paint. Artwork is taped to the wall with Japanese washi tape, making rotations easy. An inexpensive Ikea bookshelf and trolley hold craft supplies.
