Our Basement Part 26: More Stud Walls & Finish Update

February 21, 2012 — Leave a comment

New Light and Towel Ring & Hooks

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mr. S had the day off so we had a nice low key day with the family here! It has already been a busy week here on the basement. Both the plumber and contractor were here yesterday!

I thought it was about time that I show you the light I chose and the coordinating towel ring and hook (by Pegasus that I just happened to find on clearance at Home Depot). I also have the actual shower wall tile and the faux slate flooring. It is nice to see it all together. And at this rate we might even start to see some beadboard walls in the next day. Yeah!

More Stud Walls!

The plumber is done with all of his rough ins, electric is started and the studs are pretty much all in (except for the workroom which we will do after the rest of the basement is finished). It is still hard to imagine the space finished, but we are getting so much closer! Yeah!

New Sconce for above the sink (there will be 2 mounted on either side of the round mirror).

So in the end I went with Option #2 from the bathroom sconces. It is the By Gone Classic Bath Light from Shades of Light. I really liked the “bead” detail around the top and bottom of the glass. I also picked up the round mirror from Ikea over the weekend. I am still pretty indecisive about storage for the bathroom, but I figured that can be figured out after everything else is in. I did pick up an inexpensive shelf from Ikea, which I may try to use.

Paint Swatches

I don’t think I have shown you the paint swatches yet either. I am thinking of the lightest tan (white truffle from Behr) for the main part of the walls with the blue (rain washed) for the bathroom and the top of the walls. I think I may try a halftone of the blue. I like the color but think it might be a tad dark. I am also thinking of doing the baseboard and miscellaneous trim in bright white to contrast the light tan. For the baseboard we are using a plastic product (to avoid moisture issues) so it is already white, so it is very tempting to not paint it.

What do you think? I can’t wait to be able to show you some beadboard!
