This is what it looked like before (ignore the huge tv-it is still there from a New Year's Eve party-our feeble attempt to keep the children upstairs and away from the grownups!)
Wow, that picture makes me dizzy just looking at it. Way too much going on. It's basically a toy storage area, which is great, I would much rather have it stashed over there, but since we have lived here, I have felt that the space deserved something more. It has a semi-ugly built in desk, which will come in handy down the road, but for now, it's blah. There was a shelf mounted along the wall where the toy cubbies are, but my sister and I ripped it out.
Ben decided he wanted it to be his Mancave. I said something about it being a fort or a hide out-and Mancave is where he went.
So, this is what it looks like right now....
I have been told that even though it says Boys Only, Moms are allowed to enter-but only sometimes. And Allie and Coleman can come in, too-sometimes.
It still isn't too Mancave-y, but at least we have it closed off and cleaned out! And the curtains are really navy, not puke blue-the flash must have been mad at them.
Looks like a nice blank canvas for our resident artist, huh? Anyone have any ideas for man-cave-ing it up?
