I’m having so much fun looking through these old photos! Sometimes it’s easy to forget how much progress you have made on a project….it’s such a good reminder to look back and see how far you have come!
We have a huge basement which we really love and spend quite a bit of time using! The girl’s playroom is tucked around a corner so it can be a complete disaster and you have no idea! It took us a while to figure out how we would best utilize the space, but once we figured it out, we’ve never looked back!
There was some great storage space in the playroom! Matt converted one of the storage closets into a little book nook for the girls, it’s one of their favorite spots!! We also had a ductless heat/ac unit installed and new carpet. Both make the room feel super cozy!
We made some changes in the basement, mostly changes just making the space work better for us. We moved an exterior door which allowed us to make a cozy living room space next to the fireplace. This is were we get cozy watching movies and snuggling in for Saturday morning cartoons. Matt modified the built-in cabinetry and I painted the cabinetry with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, “Typewriter”. I sealed the paint with 3 coats of Hemp Oil and it’s one of my favorite cabinets in the house!
We also have a wet bar/game area, laundry room and bathroom downstairs, but those just don’t look as pretty in pictures :)
One of my favorite rooms that we have re-done in this house is the powder room. It’s just got so much personality, yet it’s simple and classic!
We touched every part of this little room, Matt even built a new window! If you want any sources, please just let me know, I am happy to share!!
Another one of my favorite rooms is the dining room! When we bought the home, it had French doors on one wall and a swinging door on the other wall. It was completely separated from the kitchen and the living room, so we made a couple of changes…..
Matt installed a beautiful paneling to the walls! It was so labor intensive but his OCD totally paid off and the walls are perfection!! I love the simplicity of the dining room! It allows me to have a lot of fun with seasonal centerpieces too!!
There are so many wonderful things I love about this house! Truly, we will be sad to leave. We thought it would be our forever home, but now it will be the perfect home for a new family!!
