Basement Remodel (Bar, TV area, Playroom)

Hi guys!

We redid our basement this past February-May and the remodel is finally done! It will take me a while to really make it feel cozy but here it is so far. I still want to add a bench and table and chairs across from the bar because its an empty space right now but that will come later. Tv area also still needs some lovin to add more decor and color. For the bar, we went with stock cabinets which were MUCH cheaper than custom. Bar contact info is at bottom of this post. Our contractor Frank (708-595-4081‬) installed them and did all the other work (floors, electrical, paint, plumbing etc)

For the play area I collaborated with Room and Board for the room and am obsessed how it turned out.

I always get questions on paint color and we did Pure White with Sherwin Williams (Pro mar 200). Flat on walls (since it's a basement), semi gloss on moldings, and flat on ceilings.
