My client and her husband, both highly capable DIYers, gave me a modest budget and big dreams! We zoned out the space to fit the essentials: storage, desk space, reading corner, dress up and ample space for art and movement. She's deemed this their "Mover Maker Space" and move and make these sweet kiddos do!
We devised a plan for a custom dress up rack (which she built) and she learned how to stain wood, crafting that desktop with her own two hands! We made art into canvas and created a joyful, personal gallery wall that brought this sunny space to life.
Our maker mover room is the heart of our home. It’s the first thing people see when they enter & it shows that kids live here. Everything is on display for the kids to see & this consistently sparks their creativity. I don’t think one mom or dad entered my home since Shawna worked her magic without commenting on how amazing the space is. The girls are thriving & I’m 100% convinced this room has a lot to do with it. We aren’t a formal living room kind of family, so this space makes perfect sense for us. Shawna is the only one who could have created such a magical space...she’s an incredible mom who is amazing at her craft. I think of her every time I switch out the books on display, am snuggled in the reading corner, or watching the big girls sew at their desk.
