Makeover Room After
Upholstered furniture that used to be hidden underneath clutter makes an attractive seating area on the grownup side of the basement. A red accent wall enlivens the area.
A play area is stationed at the opposite end of the room, where all of the toys are now used and stored. A new activity table provides both storage areas and a work surface.
Once a short wall was removed, space was made for this snazzy open shelving that houses memorabilia, books and electronic equipment.
Mission accomplished! Both Dawn and Ron got want they wanted, and they promise to keep it neat and organized.
