Tackling the Craftroom/playroom


I’m sitting here watching the Olympics as I post this.  If something sounds weird or stream of consciousness, it’s just part of the program.  I force myself to get something  done during the day so I can indulge in T.V. watching in the evening–a whole new thing for us.  Who can resist cheering for Michael Phelps and the relay team?  That was soooo awesome.  Now we have synchronized diving–incredible!!   My DH told the guys at work about our family watching T.V. and somehow it leaked out that 1) we never watch T.V. and 2) we don’t have cable.  Like what kind of idiots don’t have cable?  Us.  LOL  How else do our kids read over 7,000 pages over the summer??  

Anyway, I have been plunking away at the craft room.  I have no idea WHEN I took the before pictures.  This view isn’t so bad.  Essentially the counter is cluttery.  I did go through and clean the cupboards and drawers.

BEFORE

Aaah much better.  

AFTER

This area is essentially a long wall that connects two areas of the basement.  That big gray couch thingy is the back seat of our 15-seat van.  I’m not even sure what the rest of the junk is..

BEFORE

Moved seat to dungeon, moved sewing table under dry-erase board, got rid of a lot of junk..

AFTER

This was another snake-pit.  To the right is a window.  I don’t like things in front of it, but here we have the sewing table.  Wouldn’t it be a cute play area instead?

BEFORE

Same area: moved the play organizer over..

AFTER

This used to be upstairs in the entry-way.  

AFTER

And now we have a cute-cuddly space!!  There’s something about this area that says, “play here”!!

AFTER

And Mommy can sew at the same time!!  

More tackles at 5 Minutes for Mom.
