It’s week 6 of the One Room Challenge, which means it’s REVEAL WEEK!
My parent’s basement didn’t need structural work, tiling, carpeting or electrical work – but I think you’ll agree that it certainly needed a makeover:
Purging, organizing, paint and fabric took this room from unusable to a spectacular home gym.
I built a small yoga mat storage rack to keep yoga mats, barbells and/or foam rollers organized and off the floor. It’s also just the right height to set next to the bike or treadmill for water and/or magazines. If you are thinking about having a home gym but aren’t sure about what equipment you should get then you might want to take a look at a website like FitnessVerve.com
Sweet William Sewing Company found the perfect material to tie the new and old colour-scheme together.
The home cinema half of the room, while not as chaotic as the gym side – is now light and bright and ready for movie night!
Just outside the door you can see the dollar store gallery wall and I love how my Mom staged the fireplace mantle.
At 17′ by 33′, this room is huge and multi-purpose so creating a cohesive look while serving two functions wasn’t an easy task (especially given that I had to work with the existing couches).
I’d like to send a special thank you out to Heidi at Modsy for coming up with a design that suited my parent’s tastes while working within some pretty strict parameters. (discount code for 100T2D readers: 100THINGS20)
There may be a few more tweaks to come – but for now the space is warm, welcoming, bright and usable… almost enough to make me want to work out. (almost).
