A Kickin New Toy Room

BEFORE:

AFTER:

Little T got a rocking new toy room today. Not that she knows it -- but I do! This former area of my basement (giant, huge, under my whole house basement) was woefully neglected since I am not a workbench kind of gal. It was dirty and run-down, although you really can't tell in the before picture just how bad it was. Imagine 5 layers of dust and guck starting from back somewhere in the 1970s.

I had a painter come in and paint the whole space. I am SO glad I had a professional do it! I could have handled it because I really don't mind painting - but Nick did a wonderful job. While paint was drying he tucked wires into the ceiling, cleaned out the cabinets, and also put down the carpet I bought. So much nicer than what I would have accomplished. I moved some of her toys down there, but as you can see, it's still rather empty. That's just fine! I have a feeling it will fill up in time with her around!! Have a great weekend everyone.
