It’s done! We last left off with the walls having just been sheet-rocked.
Josh primed and painted all the walls. The color is Benjamin Moore Morning Dew and it just happens to be the same color we used in the Upstairs Hall, Office, and Pantry and Basement Stairs. The cool thing about the color is that it looks great with the white trim and the oak trim and it looks different in each space.
Josh then installed both doors—one for the laundry room and one for the storage room. After that he was able to spend one of his friday mornings off installing all the baseboards and trim around the doors. Then I got to help out with the smaller decorative trim on all the woodwork. It was good to work together to make sure we got all the angles right.
Josh and I tag-teamed the finishing work. He primed the woodwork and stained the doors, and I did the finish coats of paint on the woodwork and door frames. The trim is our good old standby Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee.
Then we were finally ready for carpet! It was installed on Wednesday.
Josh’s wood wall is the star of the show.
We moved the Minnesota flag from Warner’s room down here, and we’ll use it to cover up some of that exposed electrical on the east wall.
It didn’t take long after the carpet was in for the large toys to migrate down, and the TV to get set up. I’m looking forward to getting a sofa and Josh is really looking forward to pulling out all his hockey and golf paraphernalia.
