Closet To Office: Part 1

We have been wanting to turn our office into a fun playroom for the kids which should be pretty simple. The challenging part though, has been trying to find a new home for all of the office stuff.

I will show you how we did it, but due to my kid’s nap times, husband’s work schedule and bad lighting, we did things a little out of order. So, try to keep up and consider yourself forewarned.

First, we removed our amazing, and not at all geeky, board game collection.

Next, we attached the shelving unit from our office in the closet. My husband, Adam, cut each board with a circular saw. He also made two additional shelves out of plywood we had leftover from our entryway remodel.

Then, I coated the two new shelves with Rust-Oleum wood stain in ebony.

After that, we removed the shelving unit and started to prepare the walls for paint by filling all holes (except the ones for the shelving unit) and cracks with spackle.

Then, I recruited my oldest son to help with the painting.

He had a blast and my walls got painted so it was a win-win for everyone.

Finally, we reattached the shelves. Again.
