Basement Update

We finished the basement at Deeradise so we thought we'd upload a few pics.  We definitely kept it rustic and fun. :)  We found some super cool light fixtures which really makes the basement cool and unique!  We did have to leave some additional railing up on the stairs instead of leaving them open so we passed inspection so it looks a bit like a corral coming down the stairs but it's kind of grown on us.  The cool entry light was found at Restoration Hardware.  We have a cool hidden door for under the stairs storage, too.

The bedroom in the basement is all in cedar so it smells really good!  Thanks to Mama Jo Ferguson for the awesome hand made Log Cabin quilt to go on the bed!

We did add a small basement bar with sink, microwave, and fridge for our guests.  The cabinets were custom made by our friend Darwin Ledford who does amazing work!  The rope pendant lights we found at Pottery Barn!  The fish above the sink is carved from cedar and we picked that up at the Craftsman's fair in Gatlinburg.

No basement is complete without a theatre room!  And, of course, we just had to have a large BEAR to make ours unique!  It's sports themed with a mix of Tennessee Vols, Kstate Wildcats and Oklahoma Sooners.  The Tennessee coal mining cart was locally made for us just outside of Tellico Plains.

And, lastly, you have to have some fun and games so the main room features our Jack Daniels pub table for some card games, an arcade for our 80's video game fixes and a sleeper sofa so we can fit even more guests into Deeradise because we know how much ya'll want to come visit and stay with us!

Finally, a quick look at the basement bath accommodations.

We also added a firepit out back for late night smores and a hot tub for those cold nights and achy backs. :) lol  We have lots of woodland critters to enjoy as well!
