The Basement is DONE!!! and a shelf makeover

How many of you have finished your basement? 
If you have, then you know that when the carpet is installed it is the most exciting thing ever! 

 We went about things a little bit backwards though, we didn't have the countertops done for the bathroom or kitchenette before we got the carpet. So we've actually been using the basement for about a month. But we've only just lately finished the countertops. 

Here's what my amazing dad and husband did.

Lately, I have been spending most of my time doing yard work, but I have managed to do a few things in my new craft room/storage room/guest room.

We had these old shelves....

Add a little paint and now I have craft storage

I'm going to add some kind of saying to the white plaque at the top. I'm not sure what yet.

Now I just need to go through all my things and fill up all the empty jars.


  1. The basement looks really nice! I've been wanted to finish our basement but my husband doesn't think it's worth the money :/
