Before Tia arrived I had big plans & dreams to have the downstairs basement decorated & furnished. Well, that didn't happen. And I was SUPER bummed. Especially because I knew she'd have to sleep on an air mattress on the floor. But, I took a look around at all the moving boxes still needing unpacked & was immediately motivated to create something from them. So, away I went to finish the unpacking!
I love how this ugly mess.....
...became this lovely cozy bedroom nook.
I even printed out a photo of her hubby & 3 boys back at home & stuck it in a cardboard frame. Everything is adhered to the wall with duct tape. I wrapped a smaller box in brown paper before painting it & created a nightstand she could actually use to set stuff on.
Viva la recyclying!
