Basement Makeover…

Before, it was not much fun to hang out in…

It was dark, and disjointed. The arrangement didn’t make much sense, but there was nothing else to do with that wall with all those bookcases…

It was just a boring old basement…

Now, the bookcases are gone…

the walls are purple and no longer brown.

There is a new sofa, and the tv has been installed above the fireplace…

The rug is new, and yes, there is indeed a new pallet table. There will be a special pallet table post soon!

    You are so brave with color! From first-hand experience I think the smoky purple is gorgeous.

    Well, how fun is this room! I'm currently trying to redo our living room, but I keep getting bogged down by the decisions and have done nothing. For like 2 years.

    I love it!! But the question is…where do all the books go? I keep trying to downsize and declutter, but with 5 soon to be 6 girls we have tons of books and no where to go with them!!
