So, we did lots of hard work this weekend, and we are getting ever closer to getting the basement bedrooms done. The guest bedroom is the first set of photos. It's not totally done yet, but it's getting much better! And please keep in mind that it's mostly being done with odds and ends we are pulling together from other parts of the house and/or leftovers. Photos are tough because the room is so small, but you get the idea.
Standing in the corner looking at the door of the guest bedroom. See the pretty wall color? And the pretty floor color? We are washing the sheets/duvet for this room. Red flannel sheets and a white duvet cover with a fairly traditional red floral pattern on it. It's from IKEA, and definitely not our usual taste, but it looks comfortable, and that's what we are going for.
New pillows! And this is a big map... mainly being used to cover up the holes in the wall where I took down a wall shelf that seriously wouldn't fit in this teensy room.
The little closet with the cute little puppy picture I've been dragging around for years.
A messy bed.
My favorite little corner. I've been collecting these thrifted pictures that are different types of needlework. My mom found a few of them, too. I love them! The curtains look weird, I know. But I had the blue velvet, which are great at blocking the cold air from the old windows (two) in this little room. But I only had two panels (I bought them in the as-is section of IKEA years ago). I think the addition of the white panel looks better than when it was just one blue per window. We just need the warmth of the velvet curtains, but I can't pay $120 to buy four new velvet panels for in here. We found this super comfy rug at IKEA.
I love these bird prints, but Justin doesn't. They are from my family, and I am so glad to use them somewhere.
Justin's man room with the paint all touched up. Again, this white floor paint is a Drylok concrete floor paint. It's wonderful.
This is the only window in the man room. We found perfect curtains at IKEA. Coming soon...
The closet in the man room. One of the bi-fold doors is down right now. I think Justin hates those doors...
