I'm going to admit I thought I would NEVER say the phrase "I love my basement". Our basement was that super creepy basement that no one ever likes to go in, it was dark and dingy. Not to mention cold!!! Here is a sneak peak at what it looked like when we moved in. The black thing on the wall was actually a window!! There are 2 windows down there that they had covered up because some idiot drilled speaker wire through the window frame to get sound outside... Needless to say we still need to get new windows BUT we at least uncovered them to let in some light!
After painting the wood panelling a nice 'eggnog' (by Behr) I painted the zee brick the same colour as I mentioned in this post. I still have one wall yet to finish but I'll hopefully get to that this week. That really helped to lighten up the basement.
Look at those nice new baseboards!!!!!
It isn't finished yet. I still have to finish painting the zee brick behind the wood burning stove. The baseboards need to be caulked, sanded and painted. I somehow missed a small section of zee brick in the entrance to the laundry room (you can see if above). I also want to paint the gate in the picture above the same colour as the walls. Ryan and I LOVE IT!!!! I just can't wait for new windows so it makes the place brighter... and warmer!!!
