Hello Lovely basement makeover (7)November 03, 2011
It doesn't look like it,
but we're actually down
the home stretch as far
as this project is concerned!
The flooring is almost complete.
And when I say 'we' that means
my husband. Painting is about all
I can be trusted with.
this is an area of the studio where the piano will be located
A few months ago, we had this:
the space worked for skateboarding & storage
To read about our plans
back in February,
I painted most of the walls white
but decided to let some of the
wood walls breathe without any
treatment at all.
So no paint on the walls of our
college son's new room--he cannot
wait to visit home and check it out.
I'm leaving the closet walls
'sauna like' for fun.
I can always change my mind.
The bathroom has since been painted,
but this gives you an idea of where it is
headed and how the venetino marble mosaic
floor looks (the shower is the same
stone in basic squares--I wanted
very very simple and low cost).
Not sure if this is pre-grout or not cuz
we opted for a grey grout.
I sealed everything a couple times.
I couldn't believe how many options
there were for body spray installation.
In the end, my husband and sons
just decided on what made sense
to them (they are all the same height).
Door on right is pocket door.
Even my childhood piano which I have played
(badly) for as long as my memory goes back
got an update--layers of paint then a soap treatment finish.
I'll share more photos soon as we pull the suite
of rooms together, and I bet you will be surprised
at how much the feel of the space changes
with dark rich flooring.
800 square feet down, just 800 more on the
other side to finish.
Thanks for following!
DIY is highly overrated.
We used to go to movies.
And cook on the weekends.
Peace to you right where you are.
