Kid's Playroom Before and After Pics

We had many proposed names for this room, I am not sure we settled on one, so it is now up to Sheila and Roger. Our two favorites were Stella in the Cella, and The Bunker. This is how we found the room. It had pieces we saved and changed. Deb and Tami washed everything in the room. Walls, ceiling and floor are cement. A lot of paint transformed the feel of the room.

Same corner. Furniture removed. See the new TV on the wall? There are plans for a lot of Wii playing.

It is now where Stella hangs out. Notice Kathy painted the ceiling white. It brightened the room a lot.

The third corner. The little table, the TV stand and the rug are gone.

The pews/benches were changed by painting them black and covering the cushions with green fabric. A few pillows were added in case someone wants to lie there and read. We left a hanging lamp for the electrician to install over the bench.

Two small cube storage units now hold books, paper, puzzles, and games. The three cork boards were added in case any budding artists feel the need to display artwork.

Here is Stella with her new hat.

The TV makes this wall the focus. The small wall was painted with black chalkboard paint.

The table was painted black and white polka dots. The two chairs became a fun and bright addition to the room.

Bridget gives Stella her hat. Stella also ended up with a scarf from our trip to France.

The couch was covered in black to match the room, cool purple zebra pillows added, and it was placed in front of the TV for comfortable Wii playing.

Green shaggy rugs on the floor warm up the room.

Sheila, take some pics of the kids playing in here and send them to us for the blog!

  1. I absolutely love what you did with the kids' room. I remember going down there and coming home and looking and looking for inspiration for that room - you guys nailed it! And Stella is the coolest! Congratulations on a fabulous re-do.
    I am Linda, Sheila's sister-in-law, and have worked on several areas in the house and love the house, love working in it and love what Roger and Sheila are doing there with the "kids." It's truly an amazing ministry. I have huge admiration for their commitment, dedication, love of the "kids," and their love of the Lord. And of course, for the "kids" themselves - our men and women in uniform.

    And I think you gals are so great for your ministry work - your enthusiasm and sense of fun comes across in all your pictures and stories. And for sure your designs are truly "divine!!!" God bless you all!
