Turn The Lights Down Turn The Volume Up

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. 🙂

Oh, The Joys of Electronics!

My “bleep bleep” computer has been giving me fits for a few months now. It is driving me nuts. Thank goodness I have other things to do so I can walk away from it when it makes me angry. It sure doesn’t help that I rely on it for so many things.

The bad thing is it is probably due to some dang virus or idiot who thinks it is fun to put bugs on our electronics. It sucks that an antivirus does not always catch them either. I think those people should be locked up and the key threw away. It’s not like one can go buy another electronic to replace it whenever they want.

I had to vent, it is really aggravating when you need to do some work and the electronic doesn’t function the way it should. My electronic is not that old either. It makes it even more frustrating. Grumble.

I am lucky that I know how to fix a few things so I don’t have to rely on paying someone. I can thank my hubby for teaching me his knowledge of electronics. But boy, does it waste a lot of hours in the day.

Maybe the electronic is telling me, go paint that wall you have had the paint bought for! 🙂

I guess I will go paint that wall. Hope your day goes without any electronic issues!
