Basement Goodness

Hi there
I just wanted to share some pics of my workshop. It's mostly finished, just a little more furniture to add (a comfy sofa and some more storage) and some art which I'm sure I'll accumulate over time.
We sealed the floor with a specky product and discovered that we actually quite like the colour and texture of it so it's staying for the time being.
Just to remind you of the basement's progress, here are some before shots when we bought the house...

Poky and dirty and sad. Oh my!
And then we knocked it down and started over...

And now, here it all is. Six months on and it's now my happy space...

Not a bad place to spend some time really. Poppet often has her bath down here at night time too, which gives me a little more stitching time. It's a lovely warm and cosy space, which is not bad considering the dungeon it was before.
This week I start hosting some friends for a regular boozy, crafty night. Because booze and craft go together like peanut butter and jelly. Right?!


  1. what a wonderful space. i know how much hard work goes into something like this, congrats and well done!

  2. thanks erin! it's been so much work but i'm surprisingly not turned off doing it again. it's very satisfying, although we still have a ways to go all over the house so i shouldn't speak too soon!

  3. I am so jealous! What an awesome space!


    1. Thanks Melinda. It's my favourite part of the house. Which is good considering how much time I spend in it!

  4. Hi, Jen. I met you at the Toronto One Of A Kind Spring Show and really enjoyed your makes. Thus, I featured you in my recent post at www.meandmyveritas.wordpress.com. All the best to you, Jana from Me & My Veritas.
