Bookcase reveal

You do not even know how HAPPY these bookcases make me!
Goodbye clutter hello pretty and organized!

If you remember last week I started here.

I cleared out the clutter and used fabric to pretty it up!

Tuesday I took a very fun field trip {with the hubby-extra bonus} to one of my favorite places Ikea! I purchased several packages of storage boxes to house our large DVD collection. I also purchased some larger boxes to hide puzzles and smaller games. So now it looks like this...

So excited with how the basement makeover is coming along!
paint basement
redo/organize bookcases
fix up bar area
reorganize scrapbook nook
make artwork for entry wall

Can't wait to share each project with you as I tackle our messy basement!

Forgot to mention that I also made the THEATRE sign above the bookcases {yes, I do have to make one for each room}. Tomorrow I will share how I made it. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
