And finally, my in-laws came this weekend to help again. yay!! My husband & father-in-law removed all the panelling in the basement/ family room, waterproofed it, changed some walls, added new insulation & put in a new drywall ceiling to replace the drop ceiling. We're closing up the walls today with paneling & will be carpeting the floor.
The sofa will go on the left wall:
And the hutch will go on the other, for the TV & toys:
Below is where I'll be putting my office. (The sofa pictured will be reupholstered & going upstairs.)
I think I'll use a table as my desk that can double as an eating & game area: (image from Country Living)
Below is another view of the room. OH SO PRETTY!!! hahahaha We have a woodburning stove that we'd eventually like to replace with an actual fireplace.
I plan to put two cozy chairs & an ottoman in front of it: (image below from Cottage Living)
Below is the cottage by Ruthie Sommers from House Beautiful that I recently posted on. I really fell for the color on the walls & we've already bought the paint. (I went a bit lighter than the actual paint shown but it looks the same- funny how photos work like that.) It looks awesome on the paneling. (It's much brighter than I usually go for but I wanted a fun, casual, bright vibe down there & I'm excited for a change.)
Here's another image from Real Simple, with a similar color scheme. I'm loving all the pops of white:
So, there you have it! I'll post after pics as soon as I get them!!! So, do you have any projects planned for summer??
