so... our basement was finished several years ago and it was always in the plans to maybe cut an area for the kids under the stairs so they could have a little nook. Why we didn't do it in the first place when we finished the basement? No clue... we were in a hurry to finish the whole basement since I was about to have our second baby.. well, we did it now (read: the hubby needed a project)... Here's what our basement wall looked like 'before.' What was behind this wall was an unfinished room/workroom....The doorway for the hideout is now exactly where the train table was in the photo below.
Here's what my genius life-mate came up with. I did the painting and the decals.. He did everything else. :) Enjoy!
and inside... notice the cool built in shelving with the pvc cubbies with a lip to hold legos...
Well, it's been forever since I posted... 3 kids will do that to you... but that doesn't mean I haven't done anything. A couple days ago, I was driving out of my neighborhood and was very attracted to a mound of things on the curb in front of a neighbor that's moving. Here's what I pulled off the road and into the back of my car:
I was so excited to put it as my centerpiece on my mantle:
I also snagged this chair that I plan to paint and reupholster:
And here is a shelf that I wish I had taken a 'before' of... it was a dark green with an apple cut out on the top. I painted it and decoupaged a hulk minifigure on it for Aiden's room and his lego collection.
I am a stay-at-home mom of 3 boys and a piano teacher. In my spare time I love to decorate and do home projects. I love to travel (and do so often) and when not doing dishes or laundry... am often found shopping the discount racks at target. :) Happy reading!
