Murphy Desk

For families short on space, a desk that folds away when not in use lets kids have their own study spot without taking up precious real estate. Be sure to install your wall-mounted desk using mounting hardware appropriate for your home's walls.

Your creative kid loves her arts-and-craft supplies, but all those crayons, markers, paintbrushes, paper, and other supploes and materials may be difficult to organize. Learn what to toss and what to keep, and how to make her artistic space more organized.

Painted Play Table

Make your kids' furniture shine by applying high-gloss latex paint to the top or bottom half to create a "dipped" look.

Super Sofa

A kid-proof sofa is possible if you choose wisely. Select a model with dark-colored machine washable slipcovers. If slipcovers aren't an option, choose dark, spill-resistant upholstery, like microfiber or polyester. Cushions you can flip mean you can have a "good" side for guests and a "kid and pet" side for day-to-day use.

Multipurpose Play Room

Have a play space do double duty by adding a daybed. It gives guests a spot to stay and offers extra storage for books and toys.

Round and Round

Use bold wall stickers to add personality to a paint job. You can always peel them off and try a different pattern as often as you want.

Bargain Bed

Instead of searching for the perfect frame, give the illusion of an antique by painting whatever shape you want behind the bed.

All Grown Up

A mixed media gallery wall and colorful area rugs add pops of personality and are easy to change as your child ages. Also, a clear glass lamp base lets you add fun details inside.

Room for Two

Give each of your kiddos their own work area with a clever setup that takes up minimal floor space while creating privacy for each child to work. You'll need two identical desks with hutch tops.

Clever Carpet

Brush your child's toy blocks with fabric paint and stamp onto a canvas drop cloth to create a one-of-a-kind rug for any space.

Toy Boxes

Stick repurposed cardboard file boxes underneath the bed to help organize small toys. Kids can drag them out when they're ready to play.
