I keep threatening to get the basement cleaned up and refinished and I think that we might be able to finally do that in the next few months. Yes – I’m determined. Again.
I think this has something to do with all that cleaning I did on the weekend.
Now, I’m not talking a complete refinish. I wouldn’t want to do that at this time of year in this climate. However, we already have a bathroom and laundry area in the basement and I’d love to replace the shower, sink and and utility sink as we’ll as redefine that section of the basement.
As for the rest of the basement I’d be happy if we got it cleared out and set it up like a recreation room or den for the winter. We already have a spare pull out sectional couch and a large HDTV down there so that’s a start.
Then come spring or next summer we could truly refinish the basement. I’d love to make it nice and cozy, perhaps put in a gas fireplace so that it would be nice and warm, heated floor and so on. Hmmmm that reminds me I saw some lovely mantel designs the other day, perhaps I’ll spend some time over the winter planning the full renovation and picking out things like a fireplace mantel.
Have you refinished your own basement?
