How many nights...

will it take me to paint the whole basement?  I'd love to be able to get it all done in a weekend, but between having a lot going on and needing to take care of Kyla, that's not looking like a possibility.  So starting tonight, I'm going to spend a couple hours down there after I put Kyla to bed each night.

Here's what it looks like now, after being primed...

The main living area


Hallway looking from the unfinished storage area into the living area.  There's a closet on the left side of the hallway.

Looking back from the living area.
As you can see, it's a big basement!  I'm going to start in the bathroom tonight.  I'm hoping to get it done (ceiling & walls), but that might be stretching it a bit since the trim at the ceiling will take awhile.  For the bathroom I'm going with a white ceiling and light greyish walls.  It's going to be a Badger bathroom.  I found some Badger decor at Bed, Bath & Beyond that we liked.  It will go well with the theme of the rest of the basement.

I'm not positive what the main area and hallway will be yet.  I brought home a sample that is classic taupe.  I am so indecisive so I figured I'd do a sample first.  I was afraid it'd be too dark since there aren't any windows down there.  But we have lots of lighting.  So we'll see.

Anyway, Kyla's in bed.  Daddy's at a meeting.  Mommy needs to get to work!

  1. Amy, that is a really big basement! You saw ours...it is not too big, and it took me forever to finish it all between everything else I have going on. It will get done and you will be thrilled when it is! Looks great so far!
