Everything a budding artist (or their mom) could need to get creative, including meticulously organized supplies can be found in the outbuilding. "The day the paints got unpacked — and the room wasn't even totally unpacked — the three of us were in our pajamas painting," Hannigan told PEOPLE of she and her girls' love for the space.
