Thanksgiving Came Early

Grandma and the boys

I cooked Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday, the boys wanted to have Thanksgiving at home because we are going to my Mom's house on Thursday and to my in-laws for the weekend. I cleaned out the dining room which was being used as a playroom, I'm so happy to have my dining room back. We have a contractor scheduled for January to begin work on a playroom/game room for the boys, he said that it shouldn't take over 2 weeks to finish the room but I'm not holding my breath. I'm not looking forward to the mess, but I can't wait to have the extra space. I have been looking for furniture that is sturdy enough for the boys, this is proving to be a much larger task than I had thought. The contractor is going to do several built-ins for storage and a desk. Do you have any suggestions?

I love the new look! IT is beautiful!

Great before and afters too. No suggestions here. The bouys [layroom is just bear (no furniture) right now and not sure what to add. I'm kind of in the same boat. When they get school age we are turning it back into the guest room though.

They cannot have toys in their rooms right now or they would NEVER go to sleep. We already had to put them in separate bedrooms.

Blessings on the new and addition and you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yeh for the house pick up! I'm in the middle of mine right now! A Disaster! I say do as many built ins as you can. I would love to have a wall length bookcase with cabinets beneath that stretched to the ceiling. With 8 in the fam... vertical space is all we have! Good luck. Can't wait to see the new room.
