Oh how I wish this were the big reveal of the finished basement, but it’s not.
We are so, so close, though. Hopefully this will be the very last unfinished update before the Big Reveal. Fingers crossed.
The walls still look like a patchwork quilt (and look! More colors!) and the floor is now covered with giant globs of sheetrock mud.
But, we are getting there. Slow and steady wins the race.
We still have a ways to go. BUT, we have lots and lotsa ideas and also some trim!
Now you might be scratching your chin while looking at this photo, wondering why we placed the trim so low on the wall and so far in on the ceiling. Well, lemme show you the inspiration photos and maybe it will make more sense.
Check it out! Here is what I hope to accomplish by putting the trim up like this.
Trim painted white plus a little rope lighting above the crown should give us a really cool effect on the ceiling in the theater room. At least that is the plan. We’ll see how it pans out soon enough.
Today the guys finished installing all the crown molding, the door trim and…. drum roll please….
Yep, it’s BOARD AND BATTEN! Whoop whoop!
I finally climbed aboard the B&B train. I figured since it was in the basement stairwell that I could just keep the door shut if I hate it in a few years when it becomes dated like an avocado green refrigerator. But for now? I LOVE IT! I think it looks OUT-FREAKING-STANDING! I’m very very excited about this basement remodel. It’s gonna be gorgeous when it’s done. I can’t wait to reveal the final finished product.
Wish us luck!
