When we moved in, we knew that this large, airy room would be perfect as a playroom. Originally, it was a game room complete with a bar and built in cabinets for liquor and sports jerseys. We ended up removing the bar and removing and dry-walling the cabinets.
Next on the list was priming the red and black paint and painting the whole room.
One of our parishioners did all of the painting. It was very time intensive... he worked for nearly 40 hours!
We really, really like it! I've been slow to return the toys and books. It is nice to have all this open space. We may even end up turning this into more of a family room than exclusively a playroom!
