Between finger-painted landscapes and crazy colorful collages, every little one has an inner artist just dying to create. With all that artistic energy waiting to be released, an art room is the perfect space for kids to get inspired. For DIY lover Asia from Fun at Home with Kids, an art room was always on her list of projects for artsy daughter S (and baby X). After several home DIY projects, including a whimsical playroom for her little ones, Asia and her husband embarked on creating a fantastically inspiring spot for creative play in their Seattle home. Check out Asia’s amazing room makeover (from a home gym, no less!) and get inspired!

Before

With two other amazing DIY projects already accomplished in their home, Asia and her husband saw their home gym as the perfect creative space for their little ones...after a little by-hand retouching, of course. Asia painted over the previously beige-grey walls with a bright white shade, adding some much-needed light to the dark space, but left the original carpet, so they won't have to worry about paint spills! Plus, with the awesome cement wall running along the back of the room, Asia saw plenty of potential for an artistic space for her kiddos.
