Yes – you read the title to this post correctly. Kitchen. Then Office. Now Nursery. And what they call a closet but I call it a dreamy dressing room.
First – congratulations to Jason and Abby from Rough Housing with the Rogers! They have a new little guy born just last week!
Back to the room in their nearly 100 year old house located in an upstairs mother-in-law suite/apartment. It’s a tiny kitchenette. Here it is before when they purchased their house.
Jason and Abby didn’t have a need for an upstairs kitchen since their home was no longer 2 apartments. Enter Jason and his demo skills and it became an office (with a dresser since closet space is limited in old houses)…
Once baby Austin was on the way, plans for a nursery began to take place. Wall space was awkward in the little room. The ‘kitchen cabinets while handy as a source of storage took up valuable wall space and were removed. The tiny closet was covered to allow for more space (don’t panic – there is a closet surprise coming up).
Jason and Abby built an enclosed porch onto the first floor to create a space for a walk-in closet upstairs off of the baby’s room! Brilliant! Doing the work themselves (obviously a little more DIY-skilled and talented than the average person), they saved a lot of money.
They recycled the carpet from the nursery to use in the closet and Jason built the walk-in closet shelving himself.
Here is the the awesome walk-in closet/dressing room and nursery finished. Gorgeous! Envious? Yea, me too!
Hard to believe that same space was a kitchen and then office!
