Playroom Storage and Fireplace Makeover

The basement had an ugly fireplace with a cast iron insert which never got used. We wanted to turn the space into a playroom, so that had to go. We built a new facade, installed an electric fireplace insert, and built a wall to wall toy storage 'hearth' with 6 cube drawers in the center and hinged toy boxes on each end. Now all we need is more toys!

  • Not only appropriate for a family with young children but will continue to work as children grow, storage for games and books and blankets! I appreciate the style and vision for the future.
