DIY Playroom Makeover

DIY: kids playroom makeover. Use an IKEA loft bed as the base to create a castle loft!

Mom and designer Courtney DeFeo did a spectacular job at re-creating her kids playroom into such a pretty room! Her ideas and use of space will help anyone looking to re-design an area for their kids to play in. She allowed enough space for her kids to have fun and let their imagination run wild. Courtney with help from Carol Welker built the “castle” loft bed around an IKEA loft bed– great idea!

She added mirrors to the wall, a barre, and a wooden floor piece to create her children’s very own dance space. How fun for them to get their tap shoes on and go dance away!

    I especially love the ballet barre with the mirrors. We would love for every one of our dancers to have something like this at home to practice on! Great idea!
