Basement Redo

I've started on the basement! So far it's just been cleaning, organizing the boxes and stuff that are stored down there, and finding stuff to put on top of the sump pump pit cover because it was super creepy!

The toys and things are now in the play area. I used the extra set of seats from our van as a kind of couch so the kids had something comfy to chill out on. We had an extra floor lamp we no longer needed so I set that up to get more light in the darker area of the basement. So far I've spent no money, though I know I'll need to. I still need to get a rug for the main play area, some kind of tote boxes for the things that are currently being stored in boxes (for protection in case of flooding and to hopefully keep the kids out of all of it), and some decorating things to spruce it up and get rid of the bit of creepy basement vibe that's still going on.

More updates and pictures to come!

Move & A Rental Basement Redo

Over Christmas break we moved! We want from a too small 3 bedroom 1 bath with no storage, to a 4 bedroom 2 bath with a basement. Each of the kids now has their own room, which basically just means I have another bedroom to clean lol. It's nice that they each have their own space though!

On the Facebook page I had said that I would be doing some things to the basement to make it a useable space. I'm nowhere near done, but have been able to get the toys and such down there and start making it more of a play space, and less of a creepy basment. A post on that is coming soon!
