a tour: the basement playroom's not totally done, but it's time to show you some updated pictures of the basement playroom.  The craft room needs just a few more things like nobs on the cabinets and some under cabinet lighting, but that could take a year to finish those little details.  It's kinda the way it seems to be going in this little house, every room is almost done.

craft room before...

craft room after

The organization of it all is what gets me really excited, but I must tell you the truth.  My kids bring all this stuff upstairs to the dining room table to get crafty. Say what!? They have a designated room and they just have to be next to me-story of my life right now.

I'm vulnerable here people-showing you just how sick I am.  cardboard labels-I need a 12 step program or  a life.

I ended up putting the boy's art work outside of the craft room.  I love the ease and the look of the plastic frames
My husband doubted the choice of the paint color, but I am super happy with it.  We added recessed lighting and the whole space looks bright and cheery.  I wish I had a before of the entire basement, but I struggle with the details people.
Yep, I'm the proud owner of the Rocky Hill Heartprints canvas.  Thank goodness I painted it to match.
Only in a boy's playroom do you have a bin marked guys.  Guys are very important.


The. Best. Purchase. Ever. After moving into closer quarters and spending the summer with these monkeys, we decided they needed their own space and T.V. It has kept me sane.

More "afters" to come.

I love all of it! And I can't believe that canvas didn't go for a diamond's price, I think it is gorgeous! But it looks great in your house. I can't wait to see it all in person. SO going to miss you this week!
