The Bonus Room Chronicles: Step 7, Part 2: Finishing Touches

Oops! I did it again! This post was getting CRAZY long. So, I decided to break it up. There will now be 3 parts to the 7th step. But then we are done, really and truly done with The Bonus Room Chronicles!

Today we get to take a look at some before and afters. There will be at least two before shots (one before we moved in, one when I added the "funky retro" to the bonus room). The after shots are photos that were taken while the house was on the market, after it had been de-funkyed, de-retroed and lots of neutralization had happened.

Tomorrow I will talk a little about how I like to decorate open shelving. And tell you a bit more about some of the changes we made. I am telling you now... fascinating stuff. I dare you to see if you can wait until tomorrow!

Let's get started!
