Slowly but surely we are wrapping up our year long endeavor of designing and finishing our basement, from the rooter to the tooter, all by ourselves! Once again, I’ll reference our vision and goals
for the space…we wanted an area set aside for food and drinks when entertaining and an area for dining, crafting, school work, game playing, etc. And that’s the piece of the puzzle we just finished up!
I’ll remind y’all that this was a pretty heinous place before our gut and re-do. In addition to the walls, floors and ceilings that Honey put up throughout the basement, he also added a french door in this part of the room to provide MUCH needed natural light!
The nice long table has already started to serve it’s purpose for painting, crafting and game playing.
Honey installed the wall of cabinets below to give us a place for dishes when entertaining, storage for toys and games below, a beverage center and a microwave.
Here’s the scoop on the details:
– Board and batten walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s Snow on the Mountain
– Pendant lights custom ordered through G. Scott Interiors (formerly known as both Patina Home Furnishings and Love Street Home).
– Unfinished, pre-assembled cabinets purchased from Home Depot
and painted in Benjamin Moore Fieldstone. Hardware from Target.
– Dining table from Ikea
– Dining chairs from Ikea
– Double Dot Rug from PB Teen
– Buffet shelves from Ballard Designs
– Yellow leopard slip covers (Premier Prints fabric in corn) with custom Number Four Eleven
monogram, sewn my Mother and myself. Somewhat of a “tutorial” coming soon!
– Drapes sewn my me (Premier Prints fabric). Black rods and rings from Target.
– Georgia Tech football programs collected by moi as a gift to Honey many Christmases ago.

Lastly, a quick pic of the littles racing around the basement on a baby toy. As promised during my picture taking session, I’ve got to get them outside for lunch and some slip n slide fun! After all, it’s SUMMERTIME!!!
