Necessity is the mother of invention. What could be more necessary than having a super basement to host your buddies in for the Super Bowl? With the boys coming home from school on the eve of one of the biggest tv watching days of the year, any good mother would want to make sure everything was perfect for the Big Game!
This particular good mom and I met about three weeks ago to figure out what could be done to spruce up the basement in time for the big game! No matter how much we tried to repurpose and move things around, it just didn’t feel right. It quickly became clear what we really needed was some new furniture to bring everything together. But with only three weeks to pull it off, how were we going to get it done? Pressed for time and with my full schedule, we decided for mom to do the shopping. We weren’t sure we could get absolutely everything in time. But, with a head full of ideas and a big shopping list, mom was off!
Friday before game day, it was time to put it all together. Miraculously, she had been able to have a new sectional, sofa table and card table delivered. On top of furniture, she had gone shopping for a new rug, artwork and all the accessories to fit our new “game cave” theme.
After several hours placing furniture, hanging artwork and accessorizing, the space was game ready!
We were even able to reuse the previous leather sofa and loveseat in another part of the basement creating a cozy gaming area for the guys.
Just in time to kick off the fun!
