Well, we spoke with our friends from 'across the pond' and as it turns out, they are coming HERE for most of the summer!
With that in mind, we have (I think...) settled on making a domestic trip to see them and finishing the basement!
I am uber excited to get started on this project!
Although decorating is last on the LONG list of to-do's when finishing a basement, I can't help but look...
I love the coziness of these rooms and the splashes of color!
The space will be 500 sq. feet, and here is on my list:
- An actual laundry space
- A storage room
- Canned lighting
- Carpet (as much as I love our hardwoods, I'm excited for some soft, fluffy carpet!)
- Big comfy entertaining area
- Comfy sectional with our existing couch
- New TV and entertainment center
- Bookshelves to create a mini-library
I'm excited to get my hands dirty with my hubby and make a beautiful space to share with our family and friends!
So...have any of you finished off your basement yourselves?
If you were to finish your basement...what would be on your list of 'must haves'?
