We had a big thunderstorm tonight so I turned off the computers and colored. It is relaxing. I found this on Pinterest. I used colored pencils and fine markers.
Day: September 10, 2015
The Media Room. AKA The Boys Cave as my youngest likes to call it. 🙂
The beginning it was storage.
The walls began going up, then the fun of mudding and sanding. Hubby had that fun. 🙂
Painting stage! Hubby painted and I did the touch-up. We are not perfect but I think it looks nice. In fact, compared to the pros that did this house our flaws are not much different from theirs. Sad. I would think the pros would blow us away. 🙂
The almost finished product. We love how the stain turned out on the baseboard and around the entertainment area. It really goes with the flooring we chose. We went with a new versalock vinyl plank. It was simple and it is water proof! A big plus! It required snap and go! No gluing! 🙂
The two end shelves have yet to be done but it will be covered in wood and stained to match the rest. 🙂 The cats have already claimed it to sit on. 🙂 Eventually the flooring will be the entire basement other than the storage area. We will add a drop down ceiling so we can still get to all the plumbing and ductwork. 🙂 I’m sure problems will arise.
Looking at the drop down ceilings, they have really made them look cool and sound proof. I like that. I saw that one could even paint them but I think we will leave them white to bring out some light.
The boys are enjoying their space. It solved the problem of electronics in their rooms. 🙂 Yay!
Now, if only I could find the right comfy furniture. 🙂 A couch is out of the question because the stairs turn and it is a mess to get things down there. I’m thinking comfy chairs or a lounge chair.
Pondering it. 🙂
