Before and After...well ALMOST after...

As soon as we found out I was pregnant the race was on. No, only kidding...kind of. One of the bedrooms upstairs in our house was being used for an office. We knew when we needed a nursery that would be the room we would use. Well, it happened sooner than WE planned. (God had other plans) We had a finished basement but it was finished 50 years ago when the house was built. Ha! It needed some major work. We are so blessed to have parents with skills to help this process along. :) The only before pictures I could find were when the previous owner was packing his things to move out, but they give you an idea. In less than 3 weeks we have gone from an...

old tile/floor, no paint, concrete walls, paneling, ugly ceiling, cold, and dark...

To a new carpet and tile, painted ceiling, painted walls, more/new lights, A NEW WALL (creating an office), complete with furniture, and a PLAY area...

Above is the bar area that is still collecting odds and ends that need to be put away or hung on the walls. (hints the HUGE tuna caught by Mark) This is looking inside the office, directly at Mr. Bones...(thanks to my soon to be Chiropractic Doctor husband) My dad is visiting this weekend and hanging the door, he built the wall...with Mark's help! :)

This is inside the office...what would we use this space for if we didn't have 2 HUGE dogs...?!?!!? I do not know.

View from coming down the stairs...can you see some play area!?!? :)

The living/TV area...the cool entertainment center is from Ikea (delivered by our amazing friends and their company) Thanks Expedite STL!!!!
Well...that's about it! There are a few things left but I would sy pretty good for a 3 week project. :) Happy Friday everyone! Enjoy your weekend.


  1. Looks amazing! I love the play area! :) your dogs stay in their kennels when you aren't home/asleep? We have 2 large kennels just like that in our basement, used for when we're gone or in bed. They love their kennels!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
