It took a while to tape it so that I could spray paint it.
We had a hole in the ceiling above the dining room table. I bought the round disc from Lowes and we hung the light. Turned out to be a great idea. Not bad for a 15 dollar light.
My sister-in-law and I did the wood work on the bottom. I was so grateful to have her help. It's easier with two and always a good idea to have someone check my math.
You can look back at my other remodel post to see what this basement looked like before it was an apartment. The apartment was our biggest project and we are beyond thrilled that it is done and we have a darling couple renting it!
This is their front door. I painted it black and it added a lot.
We added a great laminate grey floor that we got for only $1.37 a square foot! It turned out darling. We loved it so much we decided to do it upstairs in our portion of the house. I painted the cupboards and for $120 we had cabinets and a back splash. Not bad at all.
This is their master bedroom.
The other room they are using as a closet. So glad it's done and they are here!!
This is the upstairs living room. It is still a work in progress. But here is the progress. :)
The kitchen will eventually be re-done, but for now we just painted and added the new floor. That's the old light that you can see hanging. The light that I replaced with the D.I. find.
Our kitchen dining room before the floor.
I need to take some more updated pictures of this room ,but for now this is what I had on the camera. This room we decided to use as a playroom/office area. We added that same grey floor as the kitchen and downstairs.
I painted the entire room white in place of the yellow and it brightened it right up!
I found these "benches" at downeast home outlet. They are actually the drawer/dresser things that go under king sized beds. They didn't have the drawers in them so the guy gave them to me for 65 dollars for both. I made cushions for the tops of them and called them bench seats. They are the perfect size for my kids. The underneath area I am using for kids storage (toys, legos, books, activities).
My favorite thing about this room is the door. I need to find a before picture. It was a cream colored door. The black paint added a ton! I love this room. The shelves I made from a piece of barn wood that the previous owners used as paneling in the basement. I bought the hardware for $4 bucks a piece and had instant shelves.
I will get the other pictures loaded on here, hopefully soon. It's getting there. We are so lucky to have a home.
