One of my goals for the summer was redecorating “the playroom” upstairs into a teen/tween lounge where my daughters might hang out with their friends. For the seven years we’ve owned this house, “the playroom” over the garage was a complete shambles, filled with toys, crafts, games — usually spread all over the floor. It was impossible to walk from one end of the room to the other. There was paint and nail polish spilled on the carpet — and Play-Doh ground in like cement.

I DID NOT take a before picture. I would have been ashamed to show you.

But here are the AFTER pictures! “The Lounge” is now a room where the girls can hang out and read, write, or chat …

… have a jam session with their friends …

… and I’m happy to report that all the “little girl” stuff is not entirely gone.
