A friend of mine's mother was giving away a living room set and I jumped on it the second I saw it was available. We now have a very nice sofa and chair with ottoman in our basement! Our friends came to help and it was such an adventure getting it down the stairs hahaha but it's there now!
Our next project is to organize all of the toys for our boys and set up activity centers for a playroom. We are also going to get a small TV. The playroom has more floor space than our living room does and it will be much easier to let our little baby grow and explore down there than on the first floor. I've been looking at organization ideas on Pinterest and we are going to look for some gently used bookcases and shelving units at garage sales and thrift stores very soon. As we make progress I will update with pictures. It will be a long long project. Our baby is due in January and we are hoping to have it done by then. It just depends on what we are able to find.
We don't want to put Conrad's baby toys into storage since his little brother is on his way soon. It will be a busy play room so I'm thinking of setting it up like a pre-school setting. We're so excited! I'm going to look into some more crafts (handprint paintings, etc) to hang on the walls down there.
We have so many plans for this apartment. We want to stay here until I'm done with school and probably even longer until my career is well established. Hubby and I were talking about our dream home ideas last night and we started exploring prices for the houses we would like.... definitely going to have to wait a while haha. But it's so worth it.
So anyway-- what kind of activity centers do you have set up in your playroom? Or what kind of activities would you like to see? :)
