Basement Reveal

It’s HERE, We finally got some custom orders we have been waiting for arrive. We still have some things to finish, as most DIY reno’s go. Here’s our DIY Basement Reno.

Completed Playroom

We are so grateful for how this turned out. We thought we had to space this reno out. The funds became available and since we had the plans sorted out we got to do more then we thought possible.

So much of what fits in this cabinet was spread out throughout our house. Now it finally has a home. We’ve already been spending lots of our time down here with family movie and game nights.

We often (not this past year of course) host family and friends from out of town. We got this sofa that has storage in the chaise and pulls out into a bed. It’s almost always out. Plus the kids toys are already getting pulled under the pull out portion.

Work in Progress

Paint the Door, Paint the trim, install the trim, secure the bookshelf and create secret door for the storage….is just a few things that needs to get done yet. Yes – we found a fun solution for the under stair’s storage.

3 Doors…3 DOORS used to be in this space. It now opens up to my working desk area. The desk will also be multi purpose for a board game/puzzle table. We still have to make a simple desk, a folding table is working for now.

Oops. This picture turned out blurry. I’ve already be plugging away at my sewing machine making projects. I have some DIY stuff coming up that needs to be made. Plus lots of more blogging and a music ministry to get going.

Once We have this area more put together I’ll share that at a later time.

Until now we just enjoy the view.

This is our friend Rino Favlo’s photo. You can go to his website HERE. It’s been a dream of ours to start bringing in either our own photography on the walls or that of family and friends.

As our home is in the West Coast of Canada this picture suites our basement. Plus it’s covering our control panel.

I added some before photos here included in the video on YouTube. I DON’T miss how this used to be.

Hope you enjoyed this room transformation. I look forward to lots of great new memories in this space.

Coming soon on the blog, SPRING is in the air isn’t it?

See you on the next blog post.


Have a great day!
