A Transformation in Progress

 This is the finished room in our basement. It was a MAN DUNGEON - a dumping ground. Slowly, one small step at a time, our family has been cleaning, sorting, donating, reorganizing so that this space

 can become my new sewing space. My birthday gift from my family this year was to spend time and muscle cleaning and moving stuff.




A giant step was adding central heating and air to  the space. I never thought an air vent  or two would give me such pleasure:) 

A wall and door were added to separate my space from DH's area, his father's day gift.
This wall is just waiting to grow up and become my new "design wall."
The new paint color has been chosen and a gallon of paint has been purchased. It's one small step at a time.
