What an awesome idea! This would be great built in a kids walk-in closet! Just take the doors off the closet and utilize the extra space! Keep the kids clothes etc in a wardrobe in front of the closet to make it a secret hideout!
love this idea of getting a big tree twig, stringing some Christmas lights on it, hanging it over the table & decorating it with ornaments! - that's BRILLIANT!& i also like the mismatched chairs painted the same colour
