West Elm and fell in love, we all know I'm obsessed with all things aqua and teal! What sealed the deal was that a similar shade of gray to our wall color (SW Popular Gray) was also on the curtain panels.
these Allen and Roth ones from Lowes) on the ceiling like I did in our basement family room in Minnesota. I did this because the ledge on the wall with one window pictured above is 6 inches deep and the curtains would not hang straight if I used the bracket on the wall. I could've gotten a bit more height mounting on the wall, but I think the ceiling mount is cool and different, and I was able to make sure the curtains hung nicely in front of the deep ledge.
CB2 and we love how they tie in the wood from the vintage dresser on the opposite wall. Our original plan to do built ins on this wall didn't pan out when we started crunching the numbers and realized we didn't have enough width to make it work. This is a nice compromise. They were super easy to assemble and attach, and the shelves were just $200 each.
This area under the stairs and the nook/ledge with all the random crap on it is still a mystery to me. I envisioned having some kind of shelving on the wall and then a larger bench with storage where the trunk currently sits. We can't really fit a true mudroom near the door to the garage, but a bench with some hooks will hopefully work nicely.
That door to the garage still needs to be painted, along with the trim around it. I'm throwing around painting the doors down here a gray instead of white. Still unsure about that! For fun, here is the before shot of the door to the garage I shared a few months ago.
Ew! Let me cleanse your eyeballs with this cute pic of Zachary. He might look happy, but he really really hates being on his belly and can't figure out crawling yet. He also is deeply offended whenever I put him down and try to do something other than lovingly stare at him.
And a wide view.
I can't wait to get some photos and art on the walls, the rest of the trim, doors, and stairs painted, and my nooks and crannies finished. Until then, the before and after is making us very happy!
I'll share the playroom soon, it needs a little bit of clean up before I can show it off. I hope this room was worth the really long wait, sorry it took so long!
