I say almost because we need a few finishing touches. I would gladly show you however, the photos are trapped on my camera! I left my usb in ATL. So, you will get the big reveal when I get that back - hopefully tomorrow since dad is here for an overnight trip for work.
Hubby did a fantastic job. Really worked himself to the bone and only took one fun break to have a much needed guy night with daddy daycare. They have become quite addicted to playing shuffle board and are very competitive!
He spent the first couple of days sanding, priming and painting the paneling on the lower half of the walls, then moved onto staining the concrete floor. I can't tell you how amazing it looks. The spiced gingerbread color on the walls is beautiful and a lot less orangey than I anticipated and the floor looks like a nice worn piece of leather. It really is just breathtaking if I do say so myself. And its so much better because I didn't ahve to do any of it!
I found a large rug for in front of the tv and couches that had the orange in it and matches perfectly. It was only $50! A steal for a rug that big. I also bought some curtains for the sliding glass door, but we are worried abou the dogs getting them all dirty and dingy, so they are still up for debate. Next step we need some floating shelves and new frames for the hubby's football photos and awards. It will not be a major sports themed room, but it will be manly and tasteful.
I totally didn't take a lot of "before" pics, so hopefully I can find a few that will show you just how bad it was before so you can see the transformation!
