Kids! Playdate at our house!
Our basement is being finished for Scott’s “Man Cave”. I begged Scott to finish off underneath the stairs for the girls to have a play area to themselves. I mean, if we didn’t give them a play area, his “man cave” would quickly be filled with toys anyway. What kid wouldn’t LOVE a little nook like this? Fine, so would teenagers but let’s not go there yet.
He finally agreed.
I tossed around theme ideas with Emma. I suggested a castle because I knew Scott would be putting stone on the front. Emma came back with Ariel’s grotto. The child is an artistic genius. Of course a grotto! Ariel’s grotto is behind a large rock. Perfect. An ocean should be easy enough to paint.
I started to dream big. An ocean noise maker. An LED lazer light flashed on the ceiling to look like you’re underwater. Can we hook up a fan with mist?
Those ideas got shattered but the final result is a “man’s cave” dream.
The making of “The Grotto”:
I just want to put my seashells on and hop in!
You can pin this on pinterest now. I would totally pin this.
