I am not normally a fan of a big mess, but this one makes me happy. It was so nice to be able to start a project, go make dinner and then come back to exactly where I left off. I didn't have to clean everything up just to feed my children. I still have to organize a lot more stuff, but at least there is now a place for it.
We still need to put up the baseboards/trim and the big empty space, we are currently using as a dance floor, will be filled with my parent's pool table.
The yet unfinished wall. We still might make some lighting changes, so we are not quite ready to finish. Still plenty of room for the dance floor, or maybe an air hockey table.
