After living in our home the past 4 years, we are finally at a point where we are ready to finish our basement. I am so excited for this extra living space and to finally have a functioning laundry room. Hooray! Our basement isn’t large but will provide a nice sized family room, laundry room, storage closets, and bathroom. We plan to purchase some new furniture for our main level and move our large sectional into the finished family room as it never felt like a great fit for our main living area.
I am beyond excited for new furniture! We were given hand me down furniture after we were married and throughout our time in undergrad, graduate school, and residency we haven’t really ever purchased much new furniture. (13 years!) Mostly used pieces we could DIY to fit our needs (and budget!) like this desk.
I’ve been scouring the internet to find the perfect living room furniture for our space and budget. I’ve found some awesome finds on eBay but can I just say that losing a bid makes me so sad! I found a gorgeous sideboard, and was determined to win it. After a not so fun bidding war I lost the bid and was quite frustrated. Now the search continues to find the perfect piece at a reasonable price. I am certain this will take a while, not to mention decisions on what kind of couch to get. My husband is going for pure comfort, I’m going for beautiful design…hopefully we can meet somewhere in the middle. While my losing bid was a disappointing experience, I’ve got some good news. Liberty Mutual Insurance is offering an eBay Bid Protection Sweepstakes that is free to enter and helps protect your eBay bid ahead of time by giving you the chance to win the item in case you lose the bid. How awesome is that? I just keep thinking of how cool it would have been to win my sideboard, I do love second chances and would have loved to be able to snag this up. This Liberty Mutual Bid Protection Sweepstakes is such a game changer! One thing to note is this sweepstakes only covers items within the Cars & Trucks or Home & Garden categories. You should definitely take advantage of this!
I am so excited to share the process of our basement renovation with you all, not to mention the hunt for the perfect furniture. Any furniture suggestions? My style is sort of all over the place and our living room isn’t super large so I will have my work cut out for me. I am excited for the challenge.
