Basement Renovation Reveal

We're here!!! WOW! This has been a long time coming and I am so excited to share with you guys our finished basement. When we first toured the house I was a little nervous about it. It felt cold and honestly pretty creepy. The basement is over a thousand square feet and Tj was determined to finish this space before some of our other projects. I did not agree but now that we have it, I couldn't imagine not taking advantage of it as soon as possible. 

A labor of love is putting it lightly. If you follow me on Instagram then you have been around for all my shenanigans down here singing and dancing. I tried to make my time down here enjoyable because Lord knows I spent SO MANY WO-MAN HOURS. We didn't do it all ourselves. We had some guys Tj knows do our dry wall, our friend Seth from our church helped out, our floors were contracted out and of course my father put his blessed hands on our fireplace. We are so grateful to everyone who helped us pull this off!

If you need a little background on our house, it was built in 1922 and we've been here since October of 2016. Our laundry room/basement bathroom is not yet renovated but it is our next major project. Ok, enough of that! Here are the before and afters.....

The guest room.

Talk NELLY To Me

You guys!!! I've missed this space so much! These days it is hard to get here without being distracted with all that is going on in the background. And honestly just trying to balance being present for my girls as much as I can. It's been a minute since we've done an install of my girl and her sayings, so I will try not to laugh too hard as I type these. I promise we don't endorse some of these, I'm just letting you know now!
