hello lovely BASEMENT MAKEOVER (4)March 27, 2011
Don't get me wrong.
Things are still pretty dang gnarly around here.
If you're just discovering the madness...it started here.
But now we can see the mess more clearly.
Recessed lights? CHECK.
A peek at the flooring:
a distressed maple wood clone.
ya, that means it's not hardwood.
but you're sooooo not gonna go around with loose lips
publicizing our secret and contacting the tabloids, right?
cuz i have a nail gun, and i'm not afraid to use it.
i have no idea how to use it.
More insulation has gone everywhere.
And I have requested lots of dimmer switches.
this photo makes me nauseous. sorry bout the pink grossness.
Boxing in duct work is a pain.
I'm thrilled at how much light streams
down the stairs now that the wall
has been cut.
The other side will soon
get knocked down too.
Just a small portion of the pine which
will cover the walls and be painted by moi.
no no don't cry for me.
I luuuuuuuhhhhhhhhzzzz to paint.
gonna give these flabby upper arms a workout.
What we're thinking for the floor in the bath:
polished Venetino marble
in a basketweave pattern.
We're going with a Kohler Memoirs sink.
The mirror will be a coat of arms one.
And the shower will have marble in a subway pattern.
addressing more DUCT ISSUES
then on to CEILINGS.
Thanks for joining and all the support!
So proud of my husband's work...this man
is an attorney by day!
Feel free to leave
who is working so hard
a comment, yes?
Peace to you right where you are.
