Finishing our Basement

Hi friends,

Hope you all had a fun filled weekend. We visited some good friends and relaxed a little. No big house updates but we did  purchase our fireplace tile and line up a tiler to install it this week. The carpenter starts April 22nd so we need to be ready!

In the meantime, I am starting to think about the next item on the forever growing list and that is the basement. We renovated it a year and a half ago but then decided to hold off decorating it until we finished the main floor. This gives our kids a chance to go a bit crazy down there and we can keep our good stuff looking good in the upstairs living room.

Once the fireplace is complete and a few other small projects like the wainscoting and stair fix-up, we will be setting our sights on finishing the basement decor. Here is a previous post on our basement in case you haven't seen it before.

First-up will be a nice big, cozy sectional. It needs to be modular so that it will fit down the stairs and not too fancy because our kids will be playing on it. Ikea has a lot of popular options like the Karlstad:
  

For art, a large photo like this one from Room and Board would be nice:




We will be finishing the office space as I blogged about here and we also need some decorative accessories like lights and pillows. These would do fine:



And if we get really into it - I would love to do something like this with our pillar
Well that concludes this session of basement dreaming!
 I leave you today with this amusing thought:

Thanks for stopping by!
