Well, thanks to all the wonderful help from mum and sis this weekend, the floor is finished! I installed a few last pieces and put the molding back up after they left this afternoon. I apologize in advance for the bad photos – the lighting down there is pretty dismal.
I dug out some old curtains to hang over the weird closet-like indent thing. Now it can house storage. They’ll need to be hemmed a tad shorter but I love the funky vibe!
Remember this weird space?
This is a huge improvement!
Remember the room before? This was taken four days ago after work:
Ahhh. Chris will be so surprised!
I LOVE this floor. It is durable, super easy to install, nice looking, mildew resistant, waterproof…the list of attributes goes on and on. It’s Allure Resilient Vinyl-Plank Flooring from Home Depot in teak. The paint is my new favorite! It’s Incredible White from Sherwin Williams. Aptly named, no? It’s the perfect barely-there gray without being too dark or depressing for a basement room with a tiny window.
Now to rest. Then, some finishing touches. Like, you know, furniture.
