What do you do with an empty but usable space that is just screaming for some attention? How about turn it into a clubhouse! Sound like fun? That's exactly what we are doing here at the Bliss House in our basement-turned-Green Girls Club-Craft Room. Middle has decided to start an eco-concious club with her friends and they need a place to plan, create and, well, meet.
It is only in the beginning stages, but we are very happy with the progress so far!
The jumping off point was the IKEA headboard-turned organization station that I found on Craig for $70. It's quite narrow, which is perfect for space-saving reasons.
The sides pull out or can be hidden by rolling back into the headboard. We have been busy filling up the shelves with things from our craft stash. Glass jars make the perfect place to store things like ribbon and markers.
The walls are painted Asparagus in Baer Paint. It makes a great background for colorful accents like the paper lanterns from Pier 1 (thanks to The2Seasons for info on where to buy!). The floor material is called Allure and was purchased at Home Depot a couple years ago. It is made to look like hardwood, but conducive to the temperature changes in a basement.
And Target has a wonderful selection of supplies, like these colorful bins and the cork squares, which were only $6.
We are having so much fun down here now! We are on the hunt for a colorful area rug and table/chairs for the middle of the room.
What project are you working on these days?
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious week!
