Design on a Dime, Part 2

Well we both woke up tired and sore! Our bodies aren't used to all that physical labor. Where are the guys that do all the painting and cleaning up that they show on the home shows? Hmmph!

We took a slight detour today before we started finishing up the basement. After church, my friend Nicki invited us to join her at the Japanese Hibachi restaurant to celebrate her birthday. What, delay working on the lovely space? Definitely :) We had a great time! When we were finished there we stopped at Wal-Mart and purchased 3 inexpensive bar stools, a rug for behind the bar, a new kitty door (so Milo's cat box can be in the furnace room), and a few minor things.

We got home around 3 o'clock and with out delay got going again. We brought down a throw rug that was up in the attic rolled up. Then we decided to bring down an entertainment center & TV that wasn't being used in an extra bedroom.

George went to work hooking up the cable to it.    

               Just need a couple comfy chairs!

Hey bartender, fix me somethin!!         

Can't wait to have a few people over. 
I can't believe I lived in this house for 11 years without transforming this. Whoever buys this house has a great area here.        

Oh yeah, we only spent $100 to redecorate that space. Not too bad!                  


  1. Way to go Guys!! That $100 was well spent...

    Funny how we fix things up to get rid of it and not to use when we live in it.....

    Get some rest.......

  2. I love it! You guys did an awesome job transforming that space!! :) Now any potential buyers will get a totally different impression when they walk down those stairs.

  3. Thanks guys! We really like the look. Maybe we'll even spend time down there now.

  4. I'm a hgtv fanatic...well I used to be when we had satellite tv ;) you guys really made that space something special. Way to go on just 100 bucks!
