I put Bill to work last night! We got all the furniture we ordered from Pier 1 and the boxes were screaming at me all day long. After dinner, I gently nudged Bill in the direction of our basement den and batted my eyelashes a bit. He caved and off we went. I am SO IN LOVE!!

Here’s the video of the two of us putting together our new room. All of the Pier 1 pieces look great!!

I have two questions though:

A) I now have a lot of storage. Do you suggest I let the kids put their toys in the bins? Or am I risking ruining the furniture with banging and clanking that comes with 5 year olds?

B) What type of table should we get??? The crate that we have is actually a smaller version of something that exists in my bedroom. I almost want to switch them out so it looks more… complete. But then I look and don’t know if a regular table would be better. What would you do in that case?

And I guess the BONUS question is… how can I get Bill to completely paint the basement a new color without him divorcing me? Seriously, that’s the tough one!!!

So, what do you think about the Pier 1 makeover? I am SO happy because we were living with one chair down there. The kids would squish in and Bill and I would have to sit on the floor when we played the Wii together. This is SO MUCH BETTER!!!
