So it is time to reveal the new playroom/bonus room!! After 3 weeks of work it is almost done! I hate I don't have any before pictures but just imagine an empty room with a window. We knew when we built the house we wanted to put in built in cabinets with a window seat to overlook the lake. It is a great view out the window! I imagined kids up there reading and enjoying it. A mere 2 years later we finally get around to this project. We were going to hire someone to do it but Matt said he could. And boy did he ever! He did an awesome job. His dad came over and they spent hours and hours designing and building. It turned out better than I ever imagined! We are loving hanging out upstairs. We spend so much time up there! So without further ado, here it is...
I love how the red wall turned out!! I love love love the pictures on the wall too!
The left side - this is for the Wii. Note I do need to get more stuff to put on the shelves. It holds a lot!!
The left side! - Matt and Mike did an amazing job!!!!
The window seat!! I actually helped to make the curtains!! We are having a cushion and some pillows made so that should be added soon.
Super fun chalkboard wall. Hopefully we can teach Ben to only write on this wall!
My favorite part - all the storage! There is so much room for toys and books. I haven't even filled it up yet!
The art area! Don't you love the giant paint brush and palate (Pottery Barn - my favorite store!) We have ordered 4 little chairs to go with the table so they should be in soon. I am also working on a way to display art above the table with frames and clotheslines.
Ben loves his new playroom!!!!
