What a mess. But how much do you love that ceiling??? HA! It took me probably 2 weeks to complete, and now I'm going to cover it up. Hindsight: probably should have painted that first, but we were too excited to begin putting up the towers. Check out the walls, so BARE, minus the cubbies that we decided to mount to the wall. Another plan, not thought through. Whoopsy! So we covered step one; step two involves getting your 19 month old entertained long enough so that you can help your Mr. Awesome cut the huge, heavy MDF boards. This is most definitely a 2 person job! How do y'all like his bow? Our made him wear it, and I gotta say, she didn't have to try too hard. He's such an awesome dad.

If you look on the right side of my overgrown man child, you'll see that we put trim on the outside, versus the untrimmed left side. It gives it a finished look, and also a place to install hinges if you plan to do cabinets. The trim is just 1X2's.

Stay tuned, I will post more information and pictures this evening!!!!
Ok, so I obviously didn't post the pictures that evening. Oopsy. This was right before Thanksgiving, meaning my in-laws were headed in! So we had to get BUSY and get everything complete and clean the house so people don't know how we really live. ;) Anyway, I do have more pictures to post, but hey, you've waited long enough, so here is the final product. The paint was still wet when my in-laws walked in.... No, I am NOT kidding.
I wasn't able to get any wall decor up, and honestly, I'm still not positive what I actually want hung up. Anyway, those are faux doors on the bottom, but the top lifts up for storage. We found that we would have more space this way.
For the doors, Mr. Awesome cut some wainscoting to size and notched out some 1X2's for it to slide into. I am LOVING it. The cabinets are freaking huge and all of her toy's fit somewhere. I can't wait to get her kitchen in there and add some wall decor! Oh, and I'm going to redo a vintage chandelier!! I hear a new project in the works!!!
A big BRAVO to my husband. I love you and your awesomeness.
