Wily Wednesdays - Cave Transformation

Randy's basement went through a bit of a transformation before Kai and I moved in, so I thought I'd show just what happened. In order to create a separate room, we decided to block off the part with the closets and turn it into a bedroom. Randy graciously offered to build us a wall, complete with two sliding doors. It really couldn't be more perfect -- the closed doors give us a private bedroom (complete with two big closets and a row of windows), and when the doors are wide open, the whole basement feels larger. Thank you, Randy!

I never appreciated how much potential this space has, and we had a blast transforming it into our home, which still remains a work in progress. We decided to paint some accent walls to bring more color into the room, and we were pleasantly surprised to find that Awesome Violet (my choice for the bedroom) and Jargon Jade (Kai's choice for the living room) go quite well together.

In the beginning . . .

Let's get to work!


  1. I love it, it looks very cozy. Can't wait to see you two in a couple of weeks (and to finally meet you Jami).

  2. Lovely! It looks great! Can't wait to see you both!

  3. It is quite cozy -- the perfect little cave for a couple of dykes and their cats. Looking forward to meeting both of you, too!
