This is our precious granddaughter, Princess Kyera, in her castle, Darling Castle. We had the typical storage area under our stairs leading into our basement. When we heard that we were going to be grandparents for the first time, we decided that we needed to create a playhouse for the grandkids to play in, and the space under the stairs was the perfect place for it.
My son and I wallpapered the walls with wallpaper that looked like stone, inside the castle and outside. Then we faux finished the base boards and window and door trims to look like stone. We stained the door with a dark stain and added some metal detail to make it look like a castle door. We stenciled a sign over the door stating “Darling Castle.” I made burgundy velvet drapes with gold fringe and furnished the “castle” with small furniture.
