ok. first, let's review where we came from...
one little note: the basement décor was ALL Pat. HE wanted it to be what HE wanted...and a place the older kids would want to be with their friends. just keep that in mind ;-) I got to decorate the bathroom and guest room. he got the rest. and it turned out GREAT!
this is heading down the stairs...he's had that print since he was a teenager. we got it re-framed (which costs WAY more than anyone would think. good grief!!)
this is looking towards that little area. the bathroom is the open door to the right.
ok. now for the main part of the basement. it's a big "L". this side of the "L" has a ping pong table, an arcade table, and space for them to play basketball/soccer/hockey/whatever they make up.
pat loves these Fatheads that go on the wall...
most of the stuff in here is from either around our house, IKEA, or an antique store.
it has already been used SO much. we all used to dread spending time down there. but now we all love being down there!
thanks for your patience with all my posts! come hang out anytime!!
