I'm preparing for tomorrow's Where Women Create entry...
So excited about my new play area! It's the first time I've been able to design it! Since just building the walls, doors and electrical were enough, I was on a budget for the rest of the room, so I tried to re-use what I could from the previous house. After painting the room one of my favourite hues, (thanks again mom and Jim!) I set to work preparing the shelves. The paint colour is the darkest here called Nautical by Valspar. I was aiming to match the tone of the Ikea rolling carts that so many people have bought and I splurged on when we decided to move Sault Ste. Marie. (NO IKEA!!!!)
Then I started to unpack and make sure all important pieces would fit... I originally had plans for a cozy corner where I could crochet or digital scrapbook in, but my chair proved to be too poufy for this space. So adjustments were made... The floors are a light gray laminate from Lowes that matches the tone of the carpets in the rest of the basement. Gotta think future resale, right?
Oh! Yes! Tomorrow's visitors will also be entered to win a set of paper cutting dies if they leave a comment on this blog... details tomorrow! Hugs!
