Harper’s Herringbone Room
Night Stand & Kids Table DIY
I first prepped with a wipe down of a microfiber cloth followed by some KILZ spray primer that is supposed to bond hard to paint surfaces. It’s my first time using this spray primer. It’s less expensive than its competitor friend, Zinsser BIN shellac which I know and love. I used just one spray can on both pieces of furniture. Let that dry for over 6 hours then sprayed on the Chalk spray paint by Krylon. Two cans took care of both pieces. I did sand down the tops lightly with 220 grit in between the two coats. Finally I topped it with Krylon’s matte top coat sealer. Time will tell how well they wear, but so far they look amazing.
Ahhh! the little nook that makes Harper’s room next level is her little playhouse under the stairs. This was one of the first projects we planned for the home as we were finishing the basement. Harper’s room shares a wall with the closet that goes under our stairs, which most people use for random things like luggage and brooms…
But in our last house we had a little opening that allowed the kids to go under the stairs and turned the regular door into a dutch door and our kids were OBSESSED with playing in there. We knew we needed to recreate this space in our home so we framed out a little opening in her wall, had it sheetrocked, and once we were settled I began trimming out the opening with a mini house complete with roof shingles, porch light, mini mailbox, and a mini door! The full tutorial for the playhouse can be found here.
New paint Color: SW Dutch Cocoa in matte finish Emerald Interior Acrylic
What’s a little girls playhouse without a kid size DIY faux fireplace? I mean, this is definitely “extra,” but how much fun is it going to be season after season to decorate their own little mantel for the holidays?! The mantel is made from 2×4’s and drywall and is painted SW Porcelain mixed with baking soda for an extra matte finish. The tiles have been, unfortunately, discontinued, I’m sorry I don’t have a link for them! The little tree is from IKEA, and the stunning wall decals are “Lily Night” from Indigo Designs.

DIY IKEA PAX Closet Hack
A custom IKEA PAX closet has always been on my radar for my kids rooms, but the $1000 price tag was a little too spending for a kids closet. So instead I built this custom closet using some clearance Elvarli Drawers I found for $5 at IKEA, along with some melamine boards I picked up at Home Depot. Total cost for the closet was $150 for the builtins and $110 for the floral boxes, and hamper from Home Goods.
