Farmhouse Style Basement Project

Hello All!  Life here on the farm has been busy to say the least.  Right now we are trying to finish our basement.  For the past 12 years it's been storage and my workshop and I'm dreaming of the day it's finally finished and a place to relax and enjoy.  Our home improvement projects are done on a cash only basis so it can be slow going at times. ;)

  Since we live on a farm and I love all things farmhouse and of course fixer upper only seems logical to model this space along those lines.  However, there's going to be some unexpected pops of an industrial warehouse feel.  So a little rustic combined with a little modern farmhouse sprinkled with a touch of industrial.  We are DIY'ers and doing it all on a budget so I'm going to have lots to share and hopefully inspire you.

Here are a few sneak peeks...they may seem very random at this point, but once I share pictures of it all coming together it will make more sense.

 This is some very old barn wood and the vertical impressions were caused by 2x4's that the wood was once mounted to. This wall is going to be the backdrop to our mini kitchen/farmhouse bar.

 Here's a peek inside the pantry closet.  It's complete with a galvanized ceiling and an old style pull chain light.

 Of course there's going to be lots of shiplap! :)  Trying to choose the perfect white paint.  Don't worry... we did go back and cover the screws with spackle.

 The pantry closet just might have an old farmhouse door.  Be still my heart! ;)   I'm loving the old galvanized metal ceiling and raw steel beams.  Edge of ceiling isn't quite finished, yet.  I can't wait to show you the rest and the very unique pieces we added for that industrial farmhouse touch.  Stay tuned friends! :)
