This week I began a project that’s been on my list of TO-DO’s for a long time.
Here’s a sneak peek video of what it looks like before I get started. The video also explains the reason for the hole in the first place.
The Hideout’s main purpose is for when grand babies get old enough to stay the night without parents, but are not quite old enough to stay upstairs alone.
The Hideout can be used as a bedroom or a reading nook. It can be a napping spot or for just playing.
I think I might use it too.
When the new staircase was installed, we knew there would be a great space for creating a hiding spot. We thought a panic room, but that’s not so smart to blog about a safe space in case of emergencies, right?
So today, Day 1, included pulling all the crap out the Hideout that’s been stored.
Throw away…..Donate…..Haul to the garage for another day.
Drag the shopvac up from the garage and get busy sweeping up all the cobwebs, dirt and any other creepies that don’t belong in the space.
Nails in the ceiling?
Why yes, since the space is over the stair landing and there was new hardwood floors installed……nails in the ceiling. They will have to be bent over and disguised since the floors above need all the support they can get. I even found a wrench
I was also able to get a coat of paint on 80% of the walls. The walls will be getting a special treatment so this paint is just to hide the colors of the studs and the drywall.
Day 2 is quickly approaching and it will include finishing painting and starting on the wall treatment.
It going to be fun!!
