This month's Make It New Monday is a little bit different for a couple of reasons. #1 I don't have any REAL before pictures and #2 It is a large project that we hired someone to do most of the work. This space started out as a
junk pit one-car oversized garage that we used for storage. I am so glad that none of you were flies on the wall to hear the disagreements that my husband and I had over that space. It was so awful that I felt unsafe walking through it. But that was then and this is now and we are both very pleased with the way things have worked out.
When our son and daughter-in-law came to live with us when they found out that they were expecting twins, we had the garage converted into a bedroom/living area for them, and that's where the pictures start. We had a drop ceiling installed, drywall all around, a walk-in closet built, and carpet laid. Our son installed the shelves to house his extensive DVD collection.
My husband now uses the walk-in closet for his clothes and sundry things. He's a packrat so I refused to take AFTER pictures of that area. I love the man, but he's a messy!

So there it is! Our home gym. Now I have no legitimate excuses to slack, right?
