Playroom Before and After

So this project was not on my TO DO list this week...

But, I just found the old photos of my basement (can't really do a BEFORE and AFTER without the BEFORE right?)

So, a few months ago, without spending a single penny, I gathered all the old paint in my house (pink from the butterfly in my daughter's room, blue from my son's room, then acrylic paint I had lying around) and painted fun colors in my kid's playroom in the basement. It'll have to do until we get the money to refinish the basement, but it's definitely an improvement from the BEFORE right?

An improvement, right?

Soon I will post pictures of my dining room table and chairs I finally painted! YAY

Are you kidding me? You did all that without buying anything? I am impressed. Come to my house? I have a dungeon-like basement that could use some love.

Oh it's awesome! I'd love to do over ours. And this seems like an easy way to start. I saw this great article where they took a basement and put in a rock wall, and some swings from the ceiling, and some mats on the floor. It was really cool and didn't seem so hard as long as you have someone around who can find those stud things in the walls and such...I don't have a hubs who can find those, but hey, a girl can learn right?

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

This is a fantastic makeover. Truly, for no money, and with leftover paint, you worked some magic there. I mean really, ANYTHING is an improvement over wood paneling for sure! Anyway, I think it looks darling, and how great to have a whole room dedicated to play.

Stopped over from SITS. Happy Sharefest Saturday.
