A Hidden Room

Since you all seemed to like our far fetched idea of a book nook in place of the elevator I thought I'd share another harebrained scheme we're thinking of.

When we tore up the stairs we found a space between the steps and the exterior wall.

A space that we thought about turning into shelves or drawers, a nice place to all of our hats & boots & scarves.

And then we had an idea. A wonderful, marvelous idea.

A secret playroom.

But instead of primary colors I'm envisioning a room covered in twinkle lights with pillows on the floor and the perfect spot for a tea party.

Jus & I have even considered leaving it a secret until our children stumble upon the room. But considering that we're a far way off from creating a little room let alone having children I'm not sure if I'll be able to keep it a secret for that long.

Did you dream of finding a secret room as a child?

Such an amazing idea. It can be your guys' little getaway room to act like kids until the little ones come along... come on, who doesn't love a tea party!

Oh my gosh, this is SUCH a magical idea! I'm in love. As a kid, I think my heart would have exploded from the excitement!

PS: I hope one day I have a house with a secret room. I never knew that's what I wanted until just now, hahaha.

Oh my gosh yes! I always wanted to find a secret room when I was little. That is a great idea, and I might just "borrow" it when Michael and I ever get a house.
