Basement Repurposing

Monday, November 28th, 2011

What's in your basement? Mine was full of most of the crap that wouldn't fit in the rest of my house. Now in addition to that it's also the new home to all of Claire's outdoor toys.

Last year around this time she was barely walking so she was more than happy hanging out in the family room. Now she's running all over the place and tearing the house apart. Recently it's gotten too cold to play outside regularly like we did in the summer and early fall so in order to keep everyone's sanity we turned our basement into her playroom.

Our basement isn't totally finished, but it's not a wet stone dungeon either. It has terrible carpeting and stucco walls with faux bricks peeking through here and there. The only thing I really needed to do was clean up the crap, throw out the junk and disassemble my weight bench. I don't think I've used it once since moving into this house. My drumkit is still down there and she loves banging around on it; she even has a favorite pair of drumsticks she uses.

We also bought a nice chair for our living room to replace the huge loveseat which ended up in the basement. Claire likes jumping on it. I also moved my desktop down there since I'm rarely ever upstairs in the office.
