This is the bar area. This is the best view of how I painted the walls. I chose a dark color on the main wall when you come down (as the tv will be on this wall) and on the curved wall by the bar area.
I would like to have some shelves put on the tile wall here. I am thinking about getting shelves that look like rustic wood.
I am wanting to do a woodland theme in the basement. This is my inspiration.
My husband got me this statue for Christmas one year. I love moose. They are my favorite woodland animal. His place will be on the mantel. I have a picture of trees that I am going to hang behind him.
I didn't do anything to the outside of the bar area yet. It is still the original color which is a pinkish beige. I haven't decided if I just want to paint it the light color or do something with wood or stone.
This is a picture of the bar area before we moved in. All of this furniture is from the previous owners. I am going to paint the cabinets a dark brown.
I want to change the tile on the fireplace as it is more a grey color than tan. For now I just did some faux painting on it. Here is the before picture.
Now the after picture. I just used to two colors that I used on the walls. This will do for now until I find just the right material for the fireplace.
Here is some more inspiration for my basement. I drew these pictures when I was in my late teens and early 20's. They are drawn with pastel pencils. I also have a couple of victorian ladies that I drew back then too. I am not sure where I will put those.
I haven't hung this up in over a decade. Now they will have a place in the basement.
