I am so excited to finally be writing this post! Seriously people. I have wanted to update our basement family room for the past year and ... I am happy to report that the make over has begun!
We (really Handyman Hubby) finished the basement waaay back in 2000. He did all the work himself except for the carpet. We love the extra space and use it every day. The basement is also home to my craft room and Hubby's office.
I have wanted to repaint the entire basement for the past year but kept putting it off. I knew what a huge job it was going to be and dreaded it. I decided last weekend that it was time to finally tackle this project so I went to Lowe's and bought the paint. We started painting on Saturday and continued on Sunday then into Monday and finally finished up on Tuesday. We still need to work on Hubby's office space but I'm so glad the family room and my craft space are painted. Now comes the fun stuff! Decorating!
This is my inspiration for the room ...
A movie theme with the colors gray, black and red.
This is what I'm working with ...
The futon, chair and rug are staying. The movie art is from Hobby Lobby and has all the colors I want to use in it. I would like to recover the large ottoman and need to find something for the long wall above the futon.
I think some vintage movie reels and/or movie posters would be fun.
I also love the red bean bags in the inspiration photo. We have a blue vinyl bean bag that my kids don't use anymore. I found a red cover on clearance at PB Kids that will be perfect! Just waiting for the UPS man to deliver it. : )
Here is the other side of the room where the TV (along with five billion wires!) and game systems are.
So that's what I've been doing for the past week! I can't wait to get this room finished and share it with you all!
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting!!
