DIY Makeover: A Must-See Inspiring Art Studio

Between finger-painted landscapes and crazy colorful collages, every little one has an inner artist just dying to create. With all that artistic energy waiting to be released, an art room is the perfect space for kids to get inspired. For DIY lover Asia from Fun at Home with Kids, an art room was always on her list of projects for artsy daughter S (and baby X). After several home DIY projects, including a whimsical playroom for her little ones, Asia and her husband embarked on creating a fantastically inspiring spot for creative play in their Seattle home. Check out Asia’s amazing room makeover (from a home gym, no less!) and get inspired!


To create the perfect playspace for her little artists S and X, Asia wanted to give her kids tons of sensory play opportunities and unique creative outlets, with lots of room to showcase their creations. To make the room accessible to the kids, Asia made sure to install shelving units (from Home Depot) within their reach, trusting them to make good decisions and enabling free play. Using plastic shoe storage containers (from Target and the Dollar Store) for sensory materials, like sand, buttons, and even bubbles, Asia designed the ultimate creative art space for her mini Monets.
