Here's a few shots of my basement, this has been pretty bare so I haven't really shown you any pictures of it until now. This is where we just put our new flat screen TV, our very first one and it is also home eventually to my husband's hobby room, storage, and scrapbook room for me someday. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. We watched Up on Blu-ray and it was really neat! The couch is a spruce color, have I mentioned I'm not a green person. LOL! However, it was very comfy with the recliners and cupholder in the middle. I don't do black leather and the only other choice was taupe or beige. After looking at the colors of the carpet and walls I really wanted some color down here. We ordered two of them and only one was in stock, my dh is going to build a raised box so we can have a real home theatre in the media room. We're going to put the 2nd one behind the first one so everyone has a great seat. Cool huh?
The fireplace mantel down here has a frosty inspiration. I used my old window frame and hung a few silvery snowflakes, some greens with a light dusting of snow and little pinecones to complete the look. I love the garland so much I went back for two! Frosty and a few snowballs in a vintage looking bucket set the theme.
notice the garland
Here's the wintery themed tree with sparkly ribbon, silver flakes and sparkly mica flaked candy canes and ornaments. Try and pretend you don't see those cords.
This was an old grapevine wreath that I added some glazed vine and white snowflake to for my theme.
This grapevine garland is hard to see but it's glazed with a layer of shimmer, so neat!
This is our little cabinet that holds our cd collection
my pie safe with village that holds movies
my small buffet greets you as you go downstairs
my little graniteware bowl with fresh snowballs
the new spruce couch, I plan on buying a new throw blanket to keep us warm and accent pillows in a cranberry red color. Sorry about the flash but the lighting down here isn't so great without it.
Blessings to you and your family,
