Epic Grandmother’s Basement Make-Over

This grandmother is my style.  Multi-talented and clearly a woman who will find a way to Get. It. Done.

I love the details she put into both the woodwork and the crafts.  The details are amazing.  She’s quite the Renaissance Woman!  The sewn felt food… the hand-painted typography… the common shelves and cabinets converted into play objects…

It’s all SO much better than over-priced, Made-In-China, store-bought, will-last-for-18-months landfill junk.  Not only is it clearly made with love, but the quality is so much better.

Screw bra-burning.  THIS is what the feminist revolution should have been about.  Women kicking ass to make great things.  Even if it’s hard work.  Even if they are using “man’s” skills.  Even if they are using old-school housewife skills like sewing.  None of this up-cycling for the sake of up-cycling. There’s heart & soul + rhyme & reason in this project.

If anyone knows any more to the story, let us know.  What I was able to gather from this Facebook post is that a grandmother converted a basement space into this dream play spot for her grandchildren.

Love it.  You go, girl!
