Basement Makeover - repost

Apparently, the pictures didn't work the first time I posted this, so here's another try:

About a month ago, one of my besties decided to do a "While You Were Out" overhaul on a friend's basement while they were in Arizona for two weeks. We knew it would mean the world to her, as she's been wanting to do something with her basement for awhile. I was all in to help of course, I love BEFORE and AFTERS! 

Now, keep in mind, the budget was as close to FREE as we could get....but of course money had to be spent. Lucky, my girl had a lot of the supplies at home, and found a ton of coupons for fabric, paint, and accessories. I helped paint and pick out fabrics and colors, but I cannot take credit for this makeover! Check it out:

BEFORE


AFTER:
(We had to honor the Star Wars collection in the room....Yoda was the inspiration for the colors!)






BEFORE
An unfinished wall and corner left from a bathroom addition:


AFTER
(She was wanting to find a better place for the bed that wasn't right at the bottom of the stairs, so they could actually host people comfortable....and have room for entertainment)



BEFORE:



AFTER:




Of course, our friends loved it! It was a very bold color choice, but I think it turned out really great! 

What'ya think?!?

The whole area looks fantastic! I love the color combo! You both did a fabulous job. I especially love where you placed the bed as well as the wall color choice. Looks like a huge space with lots of different groupings going on! So glad the pics are up!!!

That is awesome! And a great, great gesture for friends. They are very lucky people to have friends who care so much about them.

Stopping by from SITS - have a great day!

It looks so warm now! I always thought that to be the "victim" of While You Were Out would be awesome. All the good stuff and none of the work! What a sweet thing to do.
