A simple stop to Goodwill made a huge impact on my basement. For $4.99, I bought a brand new Sterilite chest of drawers on casters. This simple addition really brought the playroom together. It serves as toy storage and a shelf. Bubby loves being able to pull open the drawers and choose his toys.
I do have a slight problem, though. I'm so tempted to put the bookcases I want for the living room on the credit card so I can move the existing bookcases that don't work upstairs to the basement. One would go in hubby's man cave and the other in the playroom. It's not wise, I know, so I won't do it. I will, however, ask for the money from our tax return. :)
