Designing our Basement


When I was a little girl I used to get my chalkboard down and draw out my room and I would go over various ways that I wanted to change the furnishings  around. I changed my room around probably about once a quarter or more. I used to go to the Fashion Place Mall and get marketing materials out of the garbage dumpsters and bring them home to decorate my bedroom. In High School I spent my paychecks on furniture first and then clothes. I have always loved Interior Decorating, it is in my blood. Finishing my basement and planning it all out has been so fun for me!

The past month I have spent collecting bids from contractors and now we are officially starting the finishing! We ripped down all of the butcher paper off the walls and so far we now have our plumbing, HVAC, and our new fireplace was installed yesterday! Saturday our electrical will be complete and then it will be time for the fun stuff! Sheetrock, painting, finish carpentry, & carpet! I will give you a sneak peek of some of the products we have chosen!

The Montigo L Series Fireplace with Glass Marbles instead of the River Rocks shown above

Inhabit Architect Wall Flats will surround the entire wall of the fireplace

These are some of the pendants we have purchased and we are deciding on a few more.

I will post before and after pictures hopefully soon!
