Before and After: Under the stairs little girl secret hide away

The following is a tiny space I made over on a tight budget. I took a little girls secret play space that was drab and not particularly imaginative and made it magical and special. If you live in an old house that has a similar under the stairs nook but aren’t sure quite what to do with it, consider something like this!

Before:

While it may be tricky to tell in these pictures the space first goes down stairs and the wraps around to form a u shape creating 3 tiny spaces.

After:

(Important to note that these pics were not done by my professional photographer and the color is all off. The green is a soft cucumber and not  florescent as it appears!)
