Basement Renovation: A Wet Before To A Fantastic After

Basement Renovation: 
A Wet Before To 
A Fantastic After

Watch as our basement goes from "Meh" to "Holy crap, get me the wet vac" to "I'll never make it out alive" to "Holy crap, it's perfect" in under four minutes:

Is the video a little nerdy? Yes.

Did three months spent underground give me liscence to post a highly dorky video on my blog? You betcha.

In case you can't view the video, here are a few stills to give you an idea of how far we've come.

The bar area when we first moved in:

Having poured blood, sweat and tears into this little hideaway, we're pretty pleased with the results. There are a few finishing touches we need to add, but for now - we're happy to kick back by the fire and toast our amazing new basement.

Wow! I absolutely love what you have done there. Such a dramatic transformation.. The colour on the Stair Room walls is really nice, sorry to be rude, but can I ask what colour it is? :)

Simone, we used Olympic's No-VOC paint in Blue Shamrock for the walls and Pickle barrel for the fireplace top and bar. Thanks for reading, all!
