Playroom Progress

Thursday, March 8, 2012

So, I showed you all the picture of my basement yesterday, with it's nasty carpet,
brick walls and drop-ceiling.
It wasn't pretty but it is getting better, so I had to show you.
Here's the thing; for now I have to make this basement-room-turned-playroom cute and functional
by using what we already have around here and without painting or pulling up the nasty carpet.
There are too many other things that need done around here this Spring by my sweet husband
and the playroom just isn't one of my top priorities...but the kitchen cabinets?
Oh, yes. Yes, they are.
And I am not foolish enough to burn my man out on painting before he gets to the kitchen : )
Pretty smart, aren't I?

So far we moved the play kitchen down there and made a little housekeeping area complete with
ironing board, broom, sweeper, play food and grocery cart.

And in one little corner we made a little reading spot with lots of pillows and blankets.
There's still more to do and I need to figure out some storage for baskets of toys but it's
progress...we're getting there.


{And a little Insta-Friday}
