This door is constantly in motion...
depending on the day
or who's home!
This door takes you down to the basement
the space that my chickadees claim as
heads turn when i encroach on this territory...
eyes follow my every step
their words are sometimes laced with hope that i don't make them clean up their latest masterpiece
turn down the volume
It's their everything space...
you name it
this is where it happens!!!
This spring i decided it was time for the basement to receive a fresh new look
one that I hope will build upon their memory making childhood
a space that they find comfort in
joy in hanging out
a place to bring their friends
a place to curl up with their latest book
and engage in serious Wii competition!
The basement is shaped like a L
Today I am showing a part of it....
grab your ice tea and follow me...
I created 2 sitting areas...
i can't believe it took me this long to figure this out...
previously we've only had one sitting area
it was always an issue
who sat where
who got the floor
now i created zones so to speak
this is the talking, reading zone
where they can gather without being in the way of the TV or hit by a Wii remote...
so it was really important to me to create an atmosphere for all ages to enjoy
feel at home
The ceiling light fixtures are on my list to change
I "think" I know what i want
but i'm taking my time just to be sure...
you know how that goes!
In this shot I'm standing in the second area i created...
I'll show you that next, promise!
Stop by anytime, the ice tea is made and I always have time for visitors!!!
