Stylish Eve DIY Projects: Turn Your Space Under the Stairs into a Playhouse

Stylish Eve DIY Projects- Turn Your Space Under the Stairs into a Playhouse_4

Every child loves a great playhouse. Often, when you think of a playhouse, you think of a big, bulky, plastic, Fisher Price creation that your child can only use until they are five. The limited usage hardly seems worth the struggle to get the playhouse in through the door and set up. If you have an older, elementary school aged child as I do, you know the fascination with a playhouse will not wear off until they are nearly 10. The great thing about this project is that you can continue to customize the playhouse as your child grows older. What child would not think having a private, custom space under the stairs is the coolest thing ever? Before you pick up a sledgehammer and start knocking out walls in your living room or foyer, this project uses the basement stairs.

If you have stairs that already have a finished under side, you have the perfect starting conditions for this project. The basement location also gives you exclusivity so your child will have no idea what is going on until the big reveal on Christmas morning, their birthday, or whatever special day you choose. Be prepared to take at least a week off work to complete the project. A trip to see grandma is the perfect excuse to get your children out of the house. Once you create the space, fill it with everything that you know that your child loves. Be sure to have a video camera ready to catch the look of surprise on their face when they discover the treat you had in store for them. Visit Ana White’s website to get the details on how you can build this space in your basement.
