From Dining Room To Playroom... Before and After



Baby B's mom wanted to make him a playroom.

The dining room was a room they don't use much.
It seemed like the most likely place since it's right off the kitchen and family room.

Here is the *before.*

Here are some of the *afters*.








Cute, huh?

We painted the panels with magnet/chalkboard paint.

They still want to hang some canvases and alphabet letters and curtains.

But, Baby B loves it already!
