It might not help that I was sick again this weekend. Being sick kind of puts a damper on productivity.
Before getting into my weekly basement project check in, I feel the need to share something pretty.
Now on to the task at hand; My ever-present, on-going, never-ending basement project. After last week, I was able to get some of the flotsam and jetsam picked up (meaning empty paint cans and tools). However, a fair warning, the photos that follow are still cluttered with kids toys and other things.
I am not sure if I have addressed this fact. The basement is our kids play area. It is the place that I have always just let them be free in. And even though I wish I could ban them from this space while I work, it is just not realistic. So they are still playing, and I am still working. For you, my readers, this means pictures that are filled with miscellaneous things.
So the Furniture lay out is set. Yes, I know I mentioned that last week, but today I have some crude pictures to show what I mean. I have placed the sofa on the long wall, making it the focal point when you enter the basement. To the right I have set up a setting area with the 2 chairs I won at Blissdom. To the left is another chair and a table that can be set up for kid projects. The TV cabinet sits opposite from the sofa.
the left side of the room also needs work. The little chair needs a lot of love. I am hoping to start on a slip cover for her this week. Also, the tile has been a pain in my butt from the beginning, but I may have a no cost solution for the space. Here you also get a glimpse of the TV cabinet. I was able to get the shelf installed. This side of the room also needs accessorizing.
I have started to pull together random stuff.
On an up note, I may be at the point of creating a to be done list to get me to the finish line. Before this, I just had a mess of a room that needed attention.
1. Sewing Projects-
Slip cover chair + back pillow
2 Back pillows for sofa
2 pillows for white chairs
Pillow for reading nook
Curtain for nook
2. Paint Projects-

Fix tile areaSeems pretty manageable. However, I am not giving any promises that it will be done next week, but that is the plan.
