After my paint color post last week, I vowed to show you more rooms in my house, even though they're not all finished to my liking (yet). But, given that we just bought this house four months ago, I need to stop being a control freak and remember that Rome wasn't built in a day.
So, I've shown you some of our basement when I blogged about the gallery wall and the board & batten down there. And I alluded to some of my less favorite spaces when I shared my paint colors. The rooms that are painted in "Cardboard" by Sherwin Williams. Well, you asked for it - here they are.
And here it is now:
Cardboard wall color aside, the basement is a wonderfully functional space that we use on a daily basis. There is some striking grass cloth wallpaper in a couple areas of the basement, which I love. And then there is my good friend, Indiana Jones...
In case you're wondering, it does light up. It was left with the house, and will probably remain there for all eternity, since I have no idea how we would take it down. But I don't plan on taking it down - it's just - FUN.
- It's a totally funky layout, making furniture placement a challenge to say the least.
- I just got a quote for a bunch of painting to be done in the house that came in very reasonable, so hopefully this room (among others) will be painted in the not-so-distant future.
- I scored the red bench/ottoman a couple of weeks ago at a garage sale (Arhaus - $100). I know, it doesn't match. Thinking about recovering it, but it is totally functional and what we need down there for the moment.
- There is going to be a big game of Musical
ChairsFurniture since I finally made a fabric decision for the jumbo-sized sectional we're buying. (I literally ordered the sectional Sunday and am oh-so-excited!) More on that soon...
- I know there is a lot of stuff that still needs to be added to this room. Please refer back to the four aforementioned bullet points on this one. It's going to be a domino effect here. Once the sectional arrives for our family room, changes will flow to the downstairs.
