Very excited to say that now the playroom is COMPLETE! The toys have relocated to the basement and the momma is already feelin' at ease with the amount of space in the front room. It is a cozy, crazy boy space downstairs and I am VERY happy with it!!! Thanks to everyone who helped out, especially my brother, Larry. I definitely owe him dinner for building a wall, hanging a light fixture and adding trim to the basement.
A baby gate and a curtain (thanks Amber) block off the "not used" side of the basement.
See even the grill is happy to be in the basement!
