Our Basement Part 32: More Ceiling & Basement Floor Leveling

March 16, 2012 — Leave a comment

Basement ceiling w/ beadboard walls & door

Our contractors are still moving along on the basement ceiling. There are also a few trim pieces that they are suppose to get installed for us. We hope to whitewash most of the walls this weekend and paint the door (a fun color that is yet to be determined). I am loving the new lights, the space feels a little moody, which I really like. I also like that in the middle of the day it is now bright enough with the windows and white ceiling that you don’t even need to turn on the light to walk around (which is a huge and pleasant change!).

More Basement Ceiling!

We will be painting all of the ceiling trim white and giving the beadboard panels a coat as well to make them feel less shiny and new.

Bathroom Floor Prep: Leveling and more Leveling!

They are finishing preparing the floor for our vinyl install this weekend. We decided that we would install the vinyl tile and faux grout ourselves, to speed along the process. The floor hasn’t been leveled in the laundry area yet so we will be only doing phase 1. Next weekend we should be able to do phase 2 (and live without a washer and dryer for a few days). Floor prep is definitely not a strong suit of mine (I don’t have the patience) but it does make or break an install like vinyl, since any discrepancies in the floor tend to telegraph through (which I don’t want).

What color do you think I should paint the door? Blue maybe?

I hope everyone has a great weekend (and enjoys the beautiful weather)!
