Basement Makeover

I  have been wanting to post photos of the new and improved (decor) basement for a while, but then we started to tear apart and remodel G's bathroom which is in the basement right off the family room, so my photos had to wait. Now we're (I say we like I actually did something, ha) finished with it, and everything is semi clean so I figured what better time than now?!

I forgot to take before photos of the bathroom, but take my word for it that this baby needed a re-do. The floor was white tile, and the vanity and sink needed upgraded as well, and the paint color was tan. 

I didn't paint the basement, just wanted to change the decor, as it had been plain and in 'transition' stage for like a year, TOO LONG! I could never decide what I wanted to do with it. I'm SO happy with how it turned out, and my new fireplace looks amazing with my new decor ;)


There are a few things I probably could have cleaned up before I took the photos, but ya know, I might have been too lazy


My 'pottery barn' inspired plate wall, I spent less than $20 on this project, and I LOVE how it turned out!


This is the only thing I painted, the yellow rectangle on the wall, and G made the frame and painted it for me. I cut out the letters with my cricut :)


G's bathroom. I LOVE how it turned out as well, the darker floors are so much better, and I'm obsessed with the sink!

This is what I was referring to when I blogged about him getting a steal of a deal on this! And since taking these photos, we added a mirror to the wall above the sink, took us a while to find one that we liked.


So there you have it, that is our family room and bathroom! 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was spent watching LOTS of KU Jayhawk basketball, ROCK CHALK baby!
