I knew I wanted to paint it yellow, and once I knew it was going to be in the basement, I wanted a bright color. I think everyone thought I was crazy. Even I had second thoughts but now that it's complete, I love it. It really brightens up the space. Two walls are bright yellow and the other two are lighter.
Next came the shelves. It was my first attempt at putting something like this up. It took awhile but I didn't have too many problems finding the studs and getting them up.
It took me several months to find the cabinets I wanted. Finally found them at Lowe's but then had to wait for a sale. Mom was down in January and helped me put them together.
Just this past weekend, I put the finishing touches on the room. Lisa's quilt was the first project I made in my new space. I think the next one will be a quilted wall hanging in yellows. I've been wanting to learn how to hand quilt so this will be a smaller project to get me started.
