I thought I would warm things up a touch in the living room/aka rec room lately since it has become our video game room for my girls and their friends...I think it's time to start planning a basement rec room for real.
I dug out these lamp shade slipcovers that I made a while back ...what a nice easy way to change things up. If you's like to check out this easy DIY project you can see a tutorial HERE
Dining room plans:
Pine floors (stained dark of course)
Most likely v-groove on the ceiling
Making our round table larger to accomodate seating for 6
Built ins will come down the line, this image is inspiring me...its perfect for our dining room, image found on HGTV
The next project in the planning stage is my youngest daughters bathroom...it needs a lot of work.
This is quite a before shot
Paint the cabinet white or soft grey
Adding a foot base detail to the cabinet
Adding drawers inside the cabinet
Framing the mirror
Adding a cornice and trim to the tub area
Long custom shower curtain
Paint the walls
Decorative feature for the mirror wall
I still have 100 sq feet of this beautiful tile so I want to use it in this bathroom somewhere...maybe above the mirror for the accent?
Or maybe the toilet wall??? Im not sure but that reminds me of our girls bathroom in our old house I loved the tiled walls.
You can see that old post HERE I loved all that tile in that bathroom...it's a terrible photo I know,sorry.
You can see the rest of that place HERE I loved that house....I am happy to say it's even better now that the current owners ripped out the rest of the carpet and installed wide plank pine in all the bedrooms and stained it dark...it's gorgeous and I am so glad the owners that live there now bought our old house.I miss this backyard though...and that sweet bunkie, our backyard will eventually get to that happy place it just takes time.
Back to what's in store...these walls
Here is the little bit of wainscoting I do have completed in the hall as well as the staircase of course...I am so glad I have the job completed.
So that's what I have planned, it's a lot I know and there's just one little old me...so this should take a while to complete but that's OK there is no rush...I will do what I can as quickly as I can.
My only timeline is to have the dining room completed before Halloween becuase last year the day before Halloween I ripped out the dining room carpet and more than a year without progress for me is unacceptable...because if it goes past a year it could stay that way forever...
Thanks for checking in and taking time to read my rambling post....have a wonderful day.
