Seb and Cole's gaming room

Debbie Straughton


We decided to make the room above our garage a special space for our two boys (age 6 and 8) to play. They wanted a gaming/playroom.

They both love Mario, so we used Ikea Kallax units and a bit of DIY to make Mario style storage boxes. We painted the walls in chalkboard paint and they have a giant box of chalks so they can draw on the walls.

We have a popcorn machine and a drinks fridge for movie night parties with their friends. And a karaoke machine and disco lights for parties.

It gives them a space for themselves and makes a great place for parties with their friends.

    I love it so cool. My kids (and husband) would love it. They're lucky boys!
