Well, I’ve been busy working on my new home improvement project, which is simply to have access to certain parts of my home that have been inaccessible since we moved oh, say, nine months ago?
Yes, I could have had a baby in the amount of time it has taken me to finish moving into our house. But then we would be having a totally different conversation, wouldn’t we?
So here’s the “before” picture. And, if you can believe it, this was not even the worst the room looked.
Obviously, we mistook this room for an indoor storage unit when we moved.
Then, in a moment of lunacy well-planned ingenuity, I offered our home up for the Sunday School Christmas party. I did this because I totally underestimated the amount of work it would require I knew it would force me to finish unpacking. And so, here are some pics of what we have accomplished.
The media room was the first obvious goal, so here it was as we worked on it. You can see in the pictures, I always have two busy hands to help me 🙂
This picture is about how it looks right now (except without the vacuum cleaner in the middle of the picture. I believe the vacuum has migrated south to my bedroom.)
Now on to the other exciting room – the game room! I’m not going to post the before pictures, but here are a few recent pics:
I’ll post more pics as we proceed. Next on ye olde ‘to do’ list is to move the green couch upstairs to the media room. Then it will not just be a ‘media room’; it will also serve as another guest room (as the couch pulls out into a bed). I love anything with a multi-purpose, don’t you? Know what I don’t love? Moving furniture up and down stairs. Which is why ye olde husband will be hiring ye olde nephew to move the couch. Okay, I’m done with ye olde-isms. See ya on the flip side!
