Our basement went from this...
and this (these chairs were cute but horribly uncomfortable)
Built-ins! Built-ins to hold all the toys and games and ugly equipment and DVDs, etc.
Built-ins to hold our precious books. We are a family of readers, and these books that had been living in plastic storage bins for four long years finally got to come out of the closet.
Built-ins to house a TV that is 21st century. It's even a smart TV, which I find ironic, but that's another topic.
When we moved in four years ago, we finished the basement. We debated the possibility of built-ins, but ultimately, it seemed a waste of a lot of money. It's a basement, after all.
But after living here for a while, we knew we needed an extra family space. The family womb, as we call it, is lovely but small.
Now everyone can stretch out, relax, and enjoy the show.
Have a great week!
