The basement is complete! Pic heavy!

The basement is done! YAY! I am sure I wil do some rearranging as we start living in here but the basic set up is done. I need to LABEL everything and sort/organize my stamps but besides that I am done! YAY! It is not magazine worthy but it works for us and we each have our own designated area and lots of space for C to run in the middle YAY! Plus having a bathroom with a SINK down here ROCKS!! Having a potty for C is great too LOL! Here are some pictures, hope you like it there is a lot of sweat, a few tears and even some blood in this room!
The view when you come down the stairs and turn right. This is C's play/school/craft area.
Her little desk and chair (J made them both) with her Teflon Owl placement and lazy Susan art thing.Her rolling toys, kitchen, dress up station, and foot locker of other toys
School corner, re purposed all my old storage to house her school/craft/art stuff. I LOVE her mat! My great friend got it for us at the last MOMS consignment sale since we were not here. YAY!

Full view of my space from C's space
View from the back door and to the right
My punch storage (need two more rails to put baskets on)
My black-brown Expedit (16) with attached desk. The fabric white ones are not all full and they are the Drona (4.99 each) in case you want to get some! They ROCK and hold SO much!

The back side. The paper cabinet J made me only has about four shelves of card stock in it as I decided to go vertical with all my pattern paper. The little one on top of that has some half or less stacks that I will go through eventually.
My homemade clip it up. I cleared out two four drawer jetmax with this thing! YAY! AND only the bottom is full, the middle is about 1/3 and the top is empty!

My four matching shelves IN STUDS! My wraparound counter tops supported by 2X4 on my jetmax (which are mostly empty right now!)
Hubby's spot. This will change as he builds his custom desk and we rearrange as needed.
View from my desk to the left, loving the mini fridge too!
Amazing sign that my Soldier made for me years ago. Sorry blurry, couldn't get it to focus!
Our undecorated bathroom. I just love the sink being here, so much easier for clean up!

So there you have it. What do you think? I have to say I am pretty darn proud of J and I. He laid the floor, did the quarter round; hung everything and hauled the boxes downstairs. I did the rest and he seems to like it! C loves it and I can't wait to create in my new space. Next up and final is the garage/attic. Then time to alter some pieces to put on the walls! YAY!


  1. Good for you two for getting it done. It looks like you and C can both settle in now and do some serious playing - her of the kid variety and you of the creative variety. Enjoy!

  2. That looks like a brilliant family space - all ready for all kinds of "play". Well done!


Thank you for leaving me some love, it really makes my day!
