A Haven for Fun

May 3, 2013

It’s here –  Home Tour Friday.

Today we get to see an incredible basement renovation that will surely put a smile on your face.  The adorables that live here were in for a fantastic surprise when their parents created a child heaven below stairs.

So here’s how it started:

Basement Before 01

A blank canvas.

And with a several weeks and a lot of imagination, they created this:

The Cave 01

Climbing wall, ladder, swinging ropes.  I love the color!

and this:

The Cave 04

This happy place has been christened “The Cave” by the family.  The back wall is a projection television (you can see the projector up in the ceiling).  Shelves for toys, a seating area, a table for projects…

The Cave 10

How fun are these hanging chairs?  I love the space for the easel in the background.  This room is perfect for young adorables and can certainly grow up with them.

Special thanks to:

    Great room! thanks for the peek :)

    Get this: IKEA makes those adorable rings and ladder for incredible prices (i’m pretty sure the rings are $15, dunno about the ladder)

    Just wanted to share that with you,

    I love the basement toy room! The climbing wall and the projection TV are great ideas!

    Yes, we purchased all of the furniture, except for the table, from Ikea. The prices are unbeatable. The shelving was done by my husband and a friend. The kids basically live down here.

    Love that! Did the family install the climbing wall or did they have someone else come in and do that? Need to know!!!
