We’ve been holding out on this one for a while. But, many of you probably already caught on (and maybe that’s why you’re here in the first place). Our basement has recently undergone a HUGE change, thanks to one of our favorite blogs, Apartment Therapy and Valspar paint!
Back in May, we submitted our huge, outdated basement bar area for a room redo to Apartment Therapy, and lo and behold, we got picked! I guess the intrigue of redoing such a huge room with lots of interesting elements proved just the ticket. Well, all the work’s done, and the place has been spiffed up and photographed for a big reveal this week over at Apartment Therapy. First, take a look at our basement before the big change:
See? Told you it was bad. With a lot of paint, a lot of scrubbing and some great new finds brought in by Apartment Therapy, our room underwent a huge change. Check out the after shots:

Amazing, right? While the striped pattern and bright orange colors are definitely not something we would have come up with on our own, it sort of works. Granted, the bright stripes behind the bar are a little much, but it’s definitely an upgrade. And the couch (incredibly comfortable) and furniture are such cool finds.
A big difference from the rest of our house, with much more subdued colors and furniture, but the basement bar is supposed to be fun. We’re excited for our first big party here soon. Who’s in?
