Basement improvements......in the process. 

Because we have decided to stay put in our rental another 3 years.  I have decided that the basement needs improvement.  A nice place where I can create and a place where people can stay. 

So after a mad shopping trip to IKEA, we are on our way to improvement and organization.     

Basement Before I started to clear things out for the carpet.

Carpet laid down.  It was wall to wall which I didn't think it would be possible, but thanks to Walt and Kathi (my wonderful in-laws)  my dream was more than possible.  It looks FABULOUS!  Thank you Hubby for doing such a great job!   

And this is where I left off.  I took down the white boards, put up the table for my sewing machine, vacuumed, and took down the White fabric.  

It was a whirl wind of a day.  My hubby did a lot of building of shelves and drawers, in other parts of the house so I could organize.  My daughter needed a new dresser and to our disbelief, it took over 4 hrs to build.  Needless to say,  my daughter didn't go to sleep until way after her bed time.  When your two year old starts asking to go to sleep you know it's too late for her, but the dresser looks great and I've told her she can't have a new until after college.  My hubby also put together 3 shelving units for toys.  My family room looks somewhat organized at the moment.   So yes, a whirl wind of a day, and I am glad it is over.  

Have a great day!

Now off to the next thing. 

Mamita's Next Thing:

Putting up fabric on the cement walls.  Come back to see what I do.
