As some of you know, in our basement, we have been organizing and redecorating. First was the laundry area, now it is the "tool room". We call it the tool room because that is where all the tools are stored...duh. Our goal is to make the basement a some what useable and organized space.
You have to excuse my picture taking. The room looks like this at the moment. Might explain why I have been a little absent from posting lately. It is a maze of crap!
Without further a-do, here are the before and afters, so far:
Not so scary anymore!
Multicolor work bench...
Now, all one color!
Now, matches the rest!
We still have some work to do. The cinder block walls were painted with a fresh coat of white paint and shelving above the work bench is being painted also.
Next for the surface of the work bench and the cement flooring. Here are the colors we have choosen!
Rich Navy for the work bench surface and Rich Brown for the floor.
You may ask yourself (or not) why did we paint everything white or cream so far? Well, there is not very much light in the space. It needed some white to brighten it up. Instead of making everything white, cream, or neutral, I wanted to add a pop of color. Clint and I grabbed about 5 bold colors and a sample book for floor paint and got to work. This combo kept standing out to us.
There is still a lot to be done, other than painting. Our goal was to finish this by Spring and I think that is out the window! Who knew a tiny room could be this much work!
So what do you think so far? Are we doing a job good?
