The state of things around here....

We've been busy trying to get things in our basement wrapped up before baby comes. Isn't it funny how this is what we were trying to do before Michael was born also? We really just have little things to finish up and our handyman has been working hard to get them finished for us.

First up is Scott's music room:

They are building a little stage for his drumset and then we will trim out the walls and get carpet installed! We have a big remnant which is the perfect size for this room and FREE!

We also spent some time and cleaned out our storage room. Believe it or not, this is the finished product! A lot of old boxes and just plain garbage got thrown out and it cleared up a lot of space. We still have a ways to go, but some of that stuff will go into the finished music room so for now it is still kind of a catch all. But I guess that is what storage rooms are for, aren't they?

We also got closet doors installed in the basement bedrooms:

They really make the rooms seem finally finished now that all the junk in the closets is hidden behind doors.

And just horrify you- here is the rest of the room:

Why on earth does one household have so much bedding? I'm sure at any given point we could put up at least 10 people with fully made beds. You should all come over! :o)

So there you have it...the state of things around here. Hopefully we'll be making some progress in the new few weeks!


  1. WOW! I love that half wall with shelf that runs along the room. The closet doors look amazing.

  2. You should see the state of my unfinished nursery and trying to size down two bedrooms into one smallish bedroom. It's horrifying!
