A little update on the Basement!

A little update on the Basement!

Before and After, My Home
Here is the BEFORE :
See that hole in the ceiling we patched?  That hole was the cause of my bead board ceiling.  To try and match textures on a ceiling is a hard task to do, so I used it as a bargaining tool to get my bead board ceiling.  In my husbands words, “I love the bead board ceiling, but I don’t think I would ever do it again.”  I guess we can never move!

I am getting so excited as we get closer to completing the basement!  The painting is DONE!!  I painted the bead board ceiling and crown molding with the a white flat ceiling paint.  The walls are painted with Pebbles by Pratt and Lambert in a eggshell.  The bottom bead board I sprayed with Benjamin Moore’s White Dove in a satin to help with clean up from little hands.  
Now I need to find my light fixtures, I am dragging my feet as I don’t know what I want.  Don’t mind all my husbands wires for his surround sound, I just need to find a way to conceal them now aka a big piece of furniture to slide into the nook.  We are waiting on carpet and then the fun or decorating begins!
Happy Weekend Everyone

    I'm curious what kind of bead board you used. Was it something from Home Depot or Lowe's or a lumber yard. I know true bead board can be quite thick and heavy. I know because I had some removed from my 1922 house. Sorry, hard to – bathroom had to be gutted. But, there's bead board back now.
