Repurposed Basement: Days 41-50

I'm starting to get giddy!

Here we are in the final stretch, but I can't wait any longer to give everyone the update and a final peak at what we have accomplished!  I am so proud of Brent for all of his hard work and I am truly enjoying the excitement that the boys have to head down and play a little XBox and the new found peacefulness that has come to my main living area!

Here is what has happened lateley:

  • Fireplace has been built in 
  • Accent Walls have been painted
  • Floor has been painted
  • Window Trim finished out
  • Extreme Craigslist Shopping Trip
  • Pink Floyd Mural from Sweden put up
  • Moved In
This is what is left:

  • Floor trim needs to be painted and installed
  • Doors need to be painted
  • 2nd Beer Tap needs to be installed in the bar
  • Rock n Roll Legends Posters need to be hung
Here is the final process shown in pics:

Fireplace framed in, brick panel installed behind it, painted yellow for punch of color

This is the accent wall in the entertainment area.
