Basement DIY Family Room house Paint Walls

Basement Renovation Drywall

So I definitely forgot to post Update 3 when I filmed it two months ago so I’ll just make this a double post. 2 for the price of 1. What a deal. We finally tackled the basement renovation drywall.

In February/March we finished the framing, electrical, insulating and even got all the drywall up. Around the second week of March my Grandfather and I began mudding the drywall.

As everyone knows things started getting really intense in regards to the pandemic and “Stay-At-Home” orders, so I basically stopped all progress because I didn’t want to compromise anyone who was nice … Read the rest...

Accent Wall Office Paint

Like I said, I bought a bunch of paint. Well only two gallons to be exact. My goal was to create an awesome accent wall. I used the same color in here as the Guest Room across the hall. This room was originally the fourth upstairs bedroom. A previous owner knocked out the wall between it and the kitchen and made it a breakfast nook. All of it was painted this red salmon color.

Two walls were this hunter green and the other two were tan. I chose … Read the rest...

Antique Cabinet Refinish

Spring has sprung yet again, which means we have some rainy days to get small projects done inside the house. Time to tackle the Antique Cabinet Refinish.

This large cabinet was left by the previous owners in the living room. I’m guessing it was built specifically for the little nook in which it sits, because it fits perfectly. It may as well be a permanent fixture because I can’t imagine moving it. The thing is SOLID wood, really quality piece of furniture but a little too dark for my current taste. I painted it and it really brightened up the … Read the rest...

The Master

I actually did most of this back in October, but have been hesitant to post this update, since there is still some left to do. However, looking at the before’s and afters is pretty drastic, so it’s probably time I bring you up to date on our master bedroom. Below is a photo from the house’s listing last summer. This is the first impression we got of what would become our future bedroom. Obviously work to be done.

You may remember one of my first posts was from the night we settled on the house. We knew we wanted to … Read the rest...
