As soon as we were sure Sammi was coming, we knew we had to relocate the toys from the spare bedroom to the basement.
Dave spent a large portion of last year remodeling a huge part of the basement to make a playroom.
It's always messy, so I haven't shown it to you yet, but, let's get real, we are lucky I can get Dave to vacuum down there. LOL
We didn't do the ceiling, and we never painted the doors or the trim. (Or even put up the base boards.) But it functions. And it's great when there are ton of kids in the house because I can just banish them all to the basement.
The whole room.
The dress up area.
My vintage toy hoard.
Containers of little toys.
And the family room area. (Much needed during storm season.)
It's actually quite nice. The walls are a great aqua color and the floors are this peel and stick vinyl that looks like wood. We were on a mission to do this for as little money as possible, so the paint is a mix of a bunch of ooops paint and leftover upstairs paint. And the floor came from a liquidator place that was going out of business (scored for 38 cents a linear foot!).
Now to get Jack to go down there....hmmmm.
