The One Room Challenge is an online design event where designers and DIY creators devote 8 weeks to updating one room. For the Fall One Room Challenge, I did a game room makeover!
The game room of our house is where the kids keep and play with their toys and board games, as well as where the video games are housed. This is the room where I build my first DIY Built-in Shelving to create deep units that held even their biggest board game boxes.
However, the other side of the room was a blank wall where we had shoved a media console and hung a tv on the wall. I heard “I can’t find the charger” one too many times and decided that the room needed a functional overhaul where their games and consoles were organized, and where they could have a fun space to host playdates and sleepovers.
I turned to my go to stock cabinets to serve as a functional built in unit for housing controllers and systems and for organizing chargers and cords.
To see more builds where I used pre-fabricated cabinetry check out:
This game room contains a faux marble countertop made with epoxy, a faux brick wall, stock cabinet built-ins and more! Check out the posts below to see everything in this Fall One Room Challenge series.

The whole plan and design for the game room makeover. Here I show you my mood board and inspiration, as well as a projected budget!
This wall is made with brick wall paneling and joint compound! Check it out to see how to make this look like a real brick wall.
Use stock wall cabinets to make built-ins in just about any space. See how to build a platform and attach them together to make a custom unit.
This black marble epoxy countertop is unreal. See the kit used to create this very realistic marble look on an MDF board.
These are the perfect beginner DIY project, they are so easy to make and essentially fool proof. Plus, the are great for gallery type shelving to hold photos, picture frames and canvases.
This led neon flex strip was the perfect material for making a DIY neon sign!
This gaming couch is made 100% out of scrap wood, and provides so much seating for this small space.
This DIY indoor climbing wall is such a fun addition to a game room for kids. Plus, it’s a very easy beginnier build with only a few tools needed.
