operation basement makeover

I have been feeling rather cabin feverish and it is only October. Mostly because going outside poops my 2 year old out, and when we are stuck inside he gets bored. When he is bored he gets whiny. You get the idea.

I have a rather large basement filled with stuff. It is mostly rejected furniture that my husband and I have collected or that the people we bought the house from left here. I am reorganizing, decluttering, and wishing I had an enormous dumpster out back. I have no where to put this junk. I am not even sure where to donate it, there is some decent furniture that we have. I literally have 5 empty dressers in my basement. EMPTY!

I have now decided to put all this said junk into one of the vacant bedrooms no one sleeps there why am I keeping these deserted guestrooms neat and cluttering the living area with random piles of giveaways. If I ever have guests that stay I will keep one guestroom tidy.

I have decided that this weekend is our work bee weekend. My MIL wants to take our son for the weekend. I am taking the outdoor toys and bringing them into Jacks new play space in the basement. So when we are sick of playing upstairs there is a whole load of fun in the basement. Plus half of the room is my sewing space. So my hopes of my son jumping in his bouncy house and sliding down his slide while I am creating new things may come true. It is just going to take some work.

  1. Sounds like an awesome idea for the basement! I am so jealous of all of your LIVABLE space!
