Makeover Monday {Dixie Delights}

I'm so glad to be back in town and able to relax now after a whirl wind last couple of weeks. Let me just say that weddings are a TON of work. The event was beautiful though. I'll be sharing the pics with you tomorrow. For today, we have an amazing basement makeover to check out.

Hey y'all!  I'm Amanda from Dixie Delights and I'm just delighted to join in on the fun here at A Lived In Home.  When we unearthed mold in our forty-year old basement, it prompted an extensive DIY, year long renovation that recently wrapped up!!  We had professionals remove the mold and hook up the plumbing on the bar sink, but the rest was done by our four untrained hands!

I only have a few pictures of the "before."  It was much too yucky for me to spend time down there photographing.  The space was loaded with navy blue carpeting, dark painted paneling, water stained ceilings, mirrored walls and various other unmentionables.  Oh yeah, and the mold.

And, without further ado, behold the "after".

xoxo, Amanda
