A Basement for Christmas

My friend Denise has been steadily re-decorating her new house for months now. Once in a while I am blessed with a few more pictures of their remodel that I am happy to share with you. It has all been a labor of love, as they both truly enjoy projects around the house. Today, I am featuring her basement that she now has remodeled, unpacked and ready for the holidays.

This is the Recreation Room before they bought the house.This is the Recreation Room/Basement before they bought the house.

Bar Area The bar area before. This daylight basement must have been a big draw for their family.

Painting the Walls

The walls were a caramel color prior to Denise getting a brush to them.  And now they are a light, refreshing green called Chatroom, by Sherwin Williams.

And even before the flooring goes in, doesn’t this look so much brighter, lighter and open? Paint can work wonders in a room, as you can see with this transformation. Great choices.Flooring

 

As I mentioned, her hubby-do is pretty handy around the house and installed their new flooring himself. This Antique Oak by Style Selections is looking so good. And don’t be fooled by his bent-over posture, Rick is in good shape to be tackling these jobs! Every single board will be perfect before the tools are put away.

And just like I said, no more tools and the floor looks fabulous.

I love her “deer server” in front of the bar and of course there is a tree on the counter. Very tasteful and not overdone.

Ta Da! A Finished Basement

And with this view, we have a finished basement. All ready for Santa. Even the blankets in the basket are red and green. Merry Christmas, Denise and Rick!!!
