Stage one of the “finished”, unfinished basement is complete!
Aside from my amazing husband, I owe Serena of the “Thrift Diving” blog for giving us that final push!
And a few more befores and afters for good measure:
It feels so much cozier down there already. I am still stalking a large area rug for the children’s area and awaiting my blinds from Payless Decor, but other than that; it is completely usable.
Remember, the only change in the basement is newly painted masonry walls (Behr’s Basement and Masonry Waterproofing Paint in Silver Jade), flooring from Lumber Liquidators (Black Forest Oak, 6mm), and subfloor from Dricore. Everything else has been thrifted, gifted, or sifted through our piles of one day items. I am sort of amazed as to how well the mismatch of items are playing well together.
I’ll be sharing the details on how we made the space a bit more cozy with artwork and draperies in another post.
Have a great day!
