Basement Part I
We bought our townhouse is 2013. After about a year, we decided to finish the basement. We found a contractor that we liked to do all the work. I still got to design and pick everything out. It was only a little under 800 square feet , so I had to maximize my space. I knew I wanted built-in shelves and tons of storage to hide all my junk (I mean very important stuff). A fireplace is a must have for me so that meant bookcases on each side as well. We had a cute little area under the stairs that we knew would be perfect for a little play area for the kids. Mr. Whitelane came up with the idea of putting in a slide for the kids. I wasn’t sure how it was going to work out but he was sure about it working! He also wanted a cut out under the slide. This was so the kids could run around the entrance under the stairs and get out on the other side under the slide. It sounded good and the contractor said he could do it so everyone was happy.
We also had a full bath that was my favorite bathroom in the house. I just love all the white starting from the ground up. The octagon and dot tile, the vanity, the Target shower curtain and towels, and the soap dispenser. The vanity we got from Home Depot. It has a marble top and the faucet is also one of my , giving an old charm look. But you will have to wait for my after pictures in part II to see all that :).
