a place to chill.

We have slowly been working on our basement the past few months.  The latest project was this set of orange built-ins.  kiki's list.This is a really big (and awkward space.)  The area on the left is about 9 inches deeper than the other two areas.  Here is the before.

While this side is pretty much done (aside from me finding a third matching basket at HomeGoods) the other side is a bit more laborious.

I want this to be an area where the girls can hang out, read a book, or even serve as another bed for sleepovers (the length is that of a twin bed.)  I was just going to just add a custom cushion and call it a day.. but as I ponder it over in my head, the project seems to grow (story of my life.)

So, we will be creating an upholstered bench. Here are some pictures for inspiration.

    The orange built ins are to die for!!! That is an amazing use of color!! Can’t wait to see the bench when it is finished. True color is hard to photograph but this reminds me of SW Rejuvenate which I have splashed about my home – oranges and corals make such a difference in decor!! Love it!!
