Basement Family Room Makeover Progress

I mentioned yesterday that there are so many good sales this weekend, and the timing could not be better with the little refresh of the basement I’m working on. So, when Wayfair asked me to partner with them to highlight their major Memorial Day sale, I jumped at the chance. With over 10 million products on their site and fast and free shipping on orders over $50, it’s the perfect time to snag a few new pieces for this room.

Here are some progress shots of what I have going on down here in the basement. I mentioned the blue carpet is going bye-bye soon, next week in fact! It is getting replaced with a nice neutral greige color, which means I can finally layer it with a rug with some fun color to it! The blue toned carpet was so limiting before.

I also like the idea of having more of a pattern in the rug to hide all my kiddo’s snack mishaps down here. I absolutely love the fun colors in this one and the vintage vibe it has. I staged it over here, for now, to cover up the blue carpet but it will be moving over to the sectional area soon. We hang out in this room the most in the winter or on rainy days, so I really want it to feel cozier down here, and this soft warm rug really helps with that vibe.

Here are a few up close shots of the rug so you can really see how pretty the colors are. It has some faded detailing for a vintage look.

Next on my mission to make this space cozier and inviting were new chairs for around our game table. I snagged this table and chairs at a second-hand store for $30 and gave it a fresh coat of paint. The table is great, but the chairs were so uncomfortable that we rarely played a game or did a puzzle here like I planned on. I decided we needed something with more cushion so I went with these faux leather chairs. They are super comfortable, add a lot of warmth to the space, and are completely easy to wipe down so they are practical for snack time too. They are on sale for $120 for 2 right now.

I also like how the black metal legs relate back to the black metal legs of our console table behind the sofa as well.

Bonus the Mr. feels like this room is on it’s way to being his man cave with the new leather chairs. Even though we have a long way to go to surviving the teen hangout years first.

I’ve been on the hunt for an oversized vase for flowers or branches from our yard, and this one from Wayfair is perfect and reasonably priced with the sale. It’s an easy centerpiece when this space isn’t covered in our current puzzle obsession.
