We are almost done fixing up our basement, which is a room that the kids play in, and I scrap in, and generally we hang out it in.
Out went the very gross carpet and in went a laminate floor (thank-you ryan for doing all the work). The walls were painted purple, and a new carpet on the stairs. Just a few finishing touches to go :)
This room makes me very happy. Its much more homey and girly than the other rooms in our house which are more modern.
We painted the walls PURPLE....heack its a kids room and art room, you need color!!!
One of my paintings hanging on the wall, last painting I did at A Fine Mess (insert SNIFF)
The wall of above these shelves will be for the kids art...we need to get creating to fill up this space :)
I painted a chalk board wall....mmm its messy that chalk stuff....going to have to get used to that :) I originally had used the chalk board paint to paint a house, tree, sun etc...but then I thought ooof they are going to chalk all over the wall and the tree looked more like snowman than a tree. LOL Check out that trim above the chalk board, all professional like :) LOL
We are going to put shelves above the chalk wall later this week (yep ryan that's right :)
The kids wooden retro kitchen. I am going to put some hooks up here to hang their aprons and tea towels.
Table and chairs from AFM, that were black and green, I spray painted white. That's a table cloth from the farm, with hand embroidery. So very girly :)
A view of the couch and my scrap space behind it. Our new floor :) No coffee table, its in the laundry room, just leaves more room open for playing at this stage of the kids play.
I slip covered the couches, (very stained couches). I love that I can take these off and wash them :) I just need to find some cute throw pillows now. I also love that my MIL Pat's quilt is here, perfect for cuddling :)
The shelves here will be talked about more in a future post. My parents made them. They have awning pieces that go on with the two shelving units facing each other and a sheer sheet to make a play house. Its perfect for STORAGE and PLAY :) :) makes me happy.
My MIL pat's antique china cabinet housed my scrap supplies :) I love to keep my scrappies in pretty things like tea cups and vintage bowls.
New shelves above the computer and printer table.
More scrappies in a vintage hutch.
I also have slips covers coming for the dining room chairs I use in the room at my scrap tables, and will show them with my newly spray painted YELLOW SCRAP DESK later :)
Truly happy about this room, and the kids love it!!!! Kayleigh really loves the purple walls :)
