My Favorite Room Before & After

Welcome to my Blog! I must start by saying that I do not have an "Official" before picture, but with good reason! My husband and I decided that we were going to remodel the garage in our home that would include a Laundry room (I've always hated doing laundry in the garage) and a Playroom! Well to my suprise I came home from work one day and he had already started the building without me knowing. I didn't know why, but I was not going to complain! So I grabbed my camera and started from here:

In this picture you will notice the Garage door still in the photo, along with the opener...

This is what I had envisioned for the playroom. A big room that had the ability to have an open door for fresh air in the summertime... WRONG! He told me this was going to by MY room! His exact words were "The kids have their own rooms with plenty of toys, and I want this to be a place for you!" I know how sweet right? I was on cloud 9!!

Well as we started moving along, I had NO clue what colors I wanted because I had no time to really plan for this! I wanted another baby, but we had decided that our two plus raising our nephew was really all we could handle while working full time... and my son had a Curious George nursery that I was ooober in love with and kept EVERYTHING from. So I decided that since I can't have more babies, I would make this my "baby" room, but for ME! Bright YELLOW!! It keeps you awake in there, trust me!!This is the door that leads you into the laundry room to the right, and into the stockpile through the door on the left! (and yes, that is my daughter in her undies with a paint roller. She was helping paint the laundry room)

Here is my finished product!! My hubby built all of the workspaces and the shelves on the left wall. Everything else was purchased at Michaels craft store! I love it, and I am not even completely done making it my space!

Just a couple of my storage spaces:

So here it is:
