Upcoming projects and some pictures of our messy playroom

I came back from Nantucket with quite a long list of projects I want to complete!  As I posted in my Master Bath post, I still need a mirror in my dressing area.  Well, I was visiting my sister (before we left for Nantucket) and she had this mirror that was our grandmother's in her barn.  She was going to get rid of it, and I thought it would be perfect for my space if I paint the frame.  And re-orient the hooks.  This is probably the first project to be done.  I think I am going to paint the frame a coral color.  It will match the monogram I painted on my vanity.

 And I am going to make curtain panels for my kitchen.  My parents bought this fabric for a project in their house and decided they didn't like it, so they gave it to me.  Lucky me!

 And then my big project is our basement/playroom.  These next photos are of our playroom/ basement space.  We are so fortunate to have this large space, but it is NOT working well the way it is currently set up.  First on my agenda is to take everything off the walls and paint.  We are not loving the Windham Cream.  This project is going to have be done a inexpensively as possible, because after re-doing both upstairs bathrooms, we are a bit tapped out!  The boys are getting older, and while they still need some room for Legos, they need space to hang out with their friends.  Hubby plays poker down here and that space could be better, and we love to host friends for football watching.  We also do family movie night here.  My head is spinning because I have so many ideas!!  

I have some big plans for this space!  Will keep you updated as I move along :)  For now the carpet will stay (we put it in when we moved in 5 years ago) but I want to put in laminate flooring.  I wish we had done that originally.  Oh well!  And someday we will deal with the hideous ceiling, but that will stay too. :(
