Playroom Garage

Eli's playroom has been extremely chaotic.

But I had a plan.... :D

This horribly ugly but extremely sturdy piece of furniture was in our basement when we moved in.


It was in my craft room, and I used it to hold all the junk I was not currently using.... but honestly, I was afraid to touch it. Doesn't it just scream spiders and germs! Eeeeuuuw!

Fortunately for me, I have a big strong handsome husband who hauled it out to the garage for me, AND stripped, sanded, and primed it!


Using only paint we already had, (i.e. free) Jeremy and I painted it, and now it is adorable and spider and germ free.


Eli calls it his toy garage.
