Basement Makeover :: Episode 5

Hey guys! I can't believe we're to this point, sharing our Basement Makeover :: Episode 5 over on my YouTube Channel!





In today's video, I set up a homeschool station for my boys, Luke's car wall decal, and a fun new surprise in our basement main living area! The boys are doing online school this year, and I really just want to set them up for success! Also in today's blog post, I'm going to share some decluttering tips to get you started! Decluttering and reorganizing is something I feel like I need to do again and again as life goes on, and I've found these tips help so much!



Kyle and I were so excited that we finally found something to put on the blank wall in our basement. It took a while to set up, but we LOVE it!! One of the most frustrating parts about makeovers, is that it doesn't always come together all at once. Being patient, really finding what you LOVE, and finding items at a good price will give your makeover space such a great feel.




CLEAN UP YOUR SPACE FIRST!

It can get a bit messy, so starting with a clean space will help you feel less overwhelmed & also help you see problem areas.



INCLUDE YOUR KIDS IN THE PROCESS!

It not only helps them be in control of the things they love the most, but it’s also a great opportunity to teach them to let things they don’t love go.


GO LITTLE BY LITTLE!

Declutter section by section, NOT all at once! This will really help you not get too overwhelmed & leave the project all together.


PUT THEM AWAY!

Place items to declutter in a laundry basket/box & take them out to the car to donate right away. That way they don’t get brought back out, and it makes the process much smoother!


I'll be sharing more videos in our Basement Makeover Series, as we add a few more items to our living area down there -- like a bunkbed room and of course, remodeling our bathroom! Stay tuned for those videos over on my YouTube channel!


Love you guys!!

XO, Amanda
