On the right, you can see my lovely man, wielding some sort of power tool. RaaaaAAAwwwr.
This is the other room, which will be a guest room and a place to keep our elliptical. (Perhaps we will now use it!) The empty space there is a closet.
The way the Girl Cave looked a couple of weeks ago. The paint is this gorgeous mix of blue and seafoam, Palladian Blue from Benjamin Moore. (The paint in the other room is darker and more gray-toned, called Piedmont Gray.) They both change colors dramatically depending on the lighting. The basement actually gets a lot of light for a room of that sort, so I'm pretty happy. Though figuring out the placement for the makeup vanity was a struggle.
And then it was done!
The floors are commercial-grade floating floors, called Mocha Teak. Since we plan on getting dogs soon, they needed to be pretty indestructible, as well as pretty to look at.
A few different placement options. One side will be a little reading/napping nook, with the vanity in the middle, and the bookcases will be built-in on the other side. Just had to decide on where to put the couch.
And now....the organizing! Where's a Virgo when you need one? :P
