We moved into our house almost 9 months ago and about a week after we moved in our sewer backed up into the basement. Everything that you see in the before pictures had to be cleaned out, moved somewhere else and then started the long (and I mean long) process of redoing the room. With the help of a tax return, some really awesome friends and a handy husband we are almost 95% back into this space. There is still some work (stair treads for one and some baseboard), but for the most part we are ready to roll. Here’s the latest pictures of our process:
The little rounded “door” is a hide out for the kids. The plan is to make a “hobbit door” and the inside will be sheetrocked in. We are hoping to paint the walls white and have a bucket of sharpies available for the kids to each have a wall and then have a wall for their friends to autograph.
Here is the back wall with a door to the outside before and after:
And here is my new sewing corner before and after:
So my latest dilemma is how to store yardage that I don’t really need out and all my scraps. Hence the tubs in the corner. I went through and sorted out the scraps and yardage and now I have a lovely tower of tubs…any ideas on other, possibly more attractive, options?
The black squares is chalkboard paint. The bottom part is going to be fore the kids and the top for my sewing/crafting to-do list. Once I buy the chalk that is 🙂
