More basement!

I know, between Heirs and my basement my blog is getting a bit repeatitive lately. I swear I'll move onto something else soon.

But today was another big day working down there! We're getting so much done and it's looking really great. Everything is hung on the walls, and today we finished getting the blinds installed in the windows. We tried to do them over the weekend and got one done just fine and the other one gave us all sorts of trouble. My friend Karen came to the rescue today and we ended up over at Lowes again with two toddlers in tow getting the problem taken care of.

Then we went to look at throw pillows for the couch! You remember my big story about how I fail at knowing how to accessorize, right? I'm usually not a throw pillow kind of girl, simply because I have no clue how to pick them out. Karen to the rescue! She's actually sewing me two pillows using the fabric I bought that day at the fabric store when I finally picked out the paint color, and then we used that fabric as inspiration and she helped me pick out more pillows today.

That day at the fabric store when I thought I had no idea what I was doing and bought a piece of fabric on a whim was actually the turning point in this whole project. Every decision I have made down there since has been based on that scrap of fabric. It picked the paint and today it picked the pillows. The pillows we picked out today will look amazing on the couch. They're fun colors that coordinate great with the room and will give it a great pop of color. For the first time in my life I'm a throw pillow girl, lol! Look at me, successfully coordinating something! I never thought I would see the day. :) Granted, I had a lot of help, but still. Colorful throw pillows were achieved. It's a Christmas miracle, lol.

At this point we don't have a lot left to do except wait for the furniture to be delivered on Saturday. This was a major project to pull off before Christmas. It's been super fun and the kids are going to love it, but putting it all together has made the past month or so pretty crazy! I'm looking forward to it all being done and spending a fun Christmas down there as a family!
