The New Improved TOYROOM!! I mean LOUNGE!


 Come on in and see what we've been up to...
Our basement is finished and it's a cozy place to be when the snow is blowing and the wind is howling...and it's cool in the summer when it's hot outside.  Walk in from the family room and see what is different...
First, we removed a desk with a very old computer on it.  Also a top for the desk and a top for the credenza (that I still have the bottom for because I have 'stuff' in it.)  Leftover stuff from the kitchen was still in here.  Also, a couple of boxes of books that had been sorted out.  An old dresser sort of thing.  Leftovers from Alex's dresser...you name it, it was left here.... and toys and parts of toys...so we emptied that stuff out...
Friends were getting a new couch and were looking to get rid of a large sectional...we said "Hey! We know a good place for that...Let's make a deal.  So into the toy room it went.
 

We put one of these on the wall...

 We use this to throw a picture up there.  Thanks, Lee, you rocket scientist, for assembling the stand.  He did it while he was waiting for the boys in the truck to bring the sectional pieces.  He told me it said ROCKET SCIENTIST on the box, so he knew he would have no problems putting it together.

 Dan was quick to figure out if you turn the stand around, you can project and then change the movie WITHOUT HAVING TO MOVE OFF THE COUCH!!  Notice that somehow a PS3 and a stack of games are here, too.  How did that happen??

 So, anyway.  If you are looking for a comfy place to watch a movie or play football or basketball or some other game, you know where to go...that is, if you can get the others to move over and make room in The Lounge
