Renovating the Basement: Finished!

6 Apr

Well, mostly finished.

I’ve been waiting to post pictures until more of the basement was done and decorated and pretty enough to show you, but since you last saw pictures, there has been a lot of progress – looking back, even I’m amazed at the changes! So let’s look!

This picture was taken standing on the landing halfway down the stairs to the basement.



Remember this shot of the messy playroom/living room?



(Obviously the rocker from the nursery and the random bar height chair aren’t staying, but they give us a place to sit until the couch we ordered comes in)


And a pretty similar AFTER

(instead of seeing the bathroom door, you see our built-in bookshelf on the other side of the hallway)

And here is an AFTER picture of the guest room.

It’s not a fabulous picture, but I am in LOVE with the paint color. It will go perfectly with the guest bedroom decor that we’ll move from upstairs. For now, it’s a good color to inspire my runs.

Some good progress, huh?

We are really happy with 2 out of the 3 paint colors we chose. The only one we’re not crazy about is the bathroom color. There isn’t a good picture of the entire bathroom in this post because we are having some work done on the light and getting a good picture was hard, so more pictures of that later, but otherwise, we love the color of the main areas and the guest bedroom. (I shared those colors here.)

I still have tons of things on my To Do List for down here. Not just decorating but DIY projects, furniture rehabbing, buying furniture, and coming up with a creative and good looking set up for all of those toys!

I hope you all have a great Easter weekend with your families!
