Remodel Update!

Well, our basement is FINALLY finished!  And, I'm loving it!  My dog (Mulva), on the other hand, is sliding all over the place, so I'm not so sure she's a fan just yet:)  We also bought a fun new chair from I.O. Metro (that guy Vern from Trading Spaces has his designs there), and a super fun new rug from Target!  We plan to put together an impromptu game night and have some friends over to celebrate this weekend.  It was a long time coming, and there were bumps along the way, but I'm happy with the end result.  Now, I really want to try to make a mason jar chandelier!  Tutorial link is below - but, I think I might need someone who has a little more electrical aptitude than I do:)

  23. Wow, it looks great. Love the look of the hardwood floors, they make the space look larger and brighter. The light fixture is a great idea, you may be able to find some colored jars that will compliment your new rug. Lovely space.
