I meant to share this over the weekend, but better late than never! I'll try and post this week's party tomorrow, but first I wanted to share my new finished basement.
First the large "rec room" area (i.e., where I had the Tour of Italy tea):
(By the way, the table is just a 6 foot folding plastic table. With a long tablecloth, it isn't even that noticeable!)
As you can see, there are two doors to the left of the picture. The door on the right is a bedroom/office:
(I know such exciting décor--two whole flower pots in the window! The door in the corner is to the closet)
Next up we have the other door--the bathroom:
A closer picture of the glass tiles in the bathroom:
This bathroom is fancier than my master bath!
Finally, what is probably my favorite room, my storage closet room!
My Christmas and Halloween decorations are semi-organized! There is room for some of my tea stuff too--I moved my tiered trays to their new home down here, so I also had the added bonus of organizing my kitchen cabinets to flow a bit better too!
I even have room for more shelves!
Just so you know, the floor isn't wood or laminate. It is actually a vinyl flooring that I picked out because my parents have had some flooding problems in the past in their basement, and their vinyl floor always made clean up just a bit easier, so I thought vinyl would be a much safer option. Doesn't it look like wood? I am very happy with how it turned out.
