Basement Rec Area Face-lift
Let’s see in the past 10 years or so I would definitely say that my husband and I have, well…matured. Hopefully, it happens to all of us someday and I intend to embrace it! Our basement rec area however, until now had definitely not matured with us! It has always been a bit boring for years and frankly we don’t use it much. But, that is all about to change my friends! I wanted to give it a little face-lift and spruce it up a bit so it would fit our lifestyle, age, and entertaining habits. When we entertain we always, always end up in the kitchen. Don’t get me wrong, I love that it is the heart of the home, but sometimes it is ok for a little change of scenery, and fun darn it! So, clearly I am not a pro because I really didn’t take before photos but you should get the picture. Not too much going on, and really, really blah. So we’ve added a few fun things like a buffet and small liquor selection as well as some inviting lighting and bar stools. It’s still a work in progress, but for now I can really see us getting some use out of this space. I hope you too can find a space in your home that has fallen by the wayside that could use a little “help”. Buy some new throw pillows, maybe a lamp and give your room a whole new look and feel! Have a fabulous day friends!
(Don’t mind the pull-up bar and gaudy trophy’s – those would belong to the hubby. And I’ve been told they are here to stay :))
Yes, that is an Impala Skull – Straight from Africa courtesy of my avid hunter Dad 🙂
And more hand-made souvenirs from Africa 🙂 And do you think I have enough pillows on this couch? Nah 🙂
