Hallway Transformation: Liv’s Art Space

The new nursery is getting a bit tight. While making room for both girls to share this space, I’m moving all of the unnecessary ‘stuff’ out and reevaluating our toy collection ;). One of the bigger items that doesn’t fit at the moment is Liv’s art table and her adorable Little Jake chairs. This bitty station is one of Liv’s favorites so it’s not going anywhere, but we’re trying out a new location.

The hallway in the center of our house is big! Way larger than it needs to be and sometimes it feels like unused, excess space. One day the extra space will be folded into the new master bath, but for right now the hallway is also the art department.

The hallway leads right into the girls’ room so it’s a natural play place located right between the kitchen and the bedrooms.

We’re not stepping over or bumping into the table yet (check out that floor plan again to see how wide the hallway actually is), and we may still move the table back into the girls’ room when it’s finished, but for right now it’s a pretty nice little setup.

I like that Liv can expand her artwork escapades right up onto her chalkboard wall, and remember the painter’s tape wallpaper project from last year?

The design is still up and going strong.

Another favorite little detail that you can see more of in this space? The art table’s dipped legs! The contrast pops off of the wood floors as opposed to the white area rug in the nursery.

More hallway details here. My favorite (other than the new art nook!) might be the transformed bookshelf with its dramatic backing.

    Great idea! The table looks like the space was designed for it to be there in the first place. Gotta love it when you can transform a space with items on hand and just a little bit of rethinking.
