(basement in 2010…when I was preggers)

(putting up walls)

Friends, our home is a quaint little bungalow which means as we’ve remodeled slowly over time, we’ve become experts as using every square inch to its fullest. Recently, we’ve been remodeling our basement. Most of the bungalows in Portland have basements and act as a whole other livable level for living space. When we moved into our home, our basement was a disaster and wasn’t being used as living space, but more as storage space. There was a door that went down to the “dungeon” we called it and that door didn’t get opened for a long time.

Recently, we have opened the door and begun creating a lovely space (walls! windows! flooring!). We also created this little corner for a play room! I think I’m in love. Happy space for play dates, and F.U.N. The train table was a complete score from a neighborhood family that had outgrown it. I think it makes the space come together perfectly! True loves it 🙂

Here’s to happy kid spaces! Man, I love pulling spaces together.
