"Let's convert the garage into a playroom for the kids!"
And I said, "Heck ya!" because Brian rarely wants to do the same crazy home improvement projects that I want to do. So before he could change his mind, we dove in and headed to the hardware store.
And that was about a year ago.
Yes, it took us close to a year to finish the project. That's just how things roll when you have six amazing helpers like we do :)
The first part of the project went pretty quickly. Over one week, we enclosed the garage so that one side was still for storage, one side was for the playroom, and the back was sort of the hallway that connected it all to the house.

|They were so excited they insisted on watching a movie in there together the first night.|
|Getting her swing on!|
|You can get these at Ikea. Every kid should have a swing in their house!|
|Foam floor, hanging chairs and super sized bean bags!|
|There's really cool hidey hole under the stairs, too!|

So, there you have it! A kids paradise. A place to swing, a place to climb, a place to pretend. And a place to put on your shoes! What more could we ask for? Hmmmmm? Maybe it's time to start converting the attic???
