my house smells like paint

That is a good thing, actually a great thing. After this comes the floor, some minor finish work like door knobs, handles, and my personal favorite, the barn door. Little happy dance going on for that one! Then we are done on that floor. Finished, finit, terminado, teliomenofinito. 

The board and batten pattern, doors and all the woodwork are painted bright white, while I’ve chosen Brandy Cream by Benjamin Moore for the section of the walls above the board and batten.

So this is what it looks like today. The floor is not down yet but seeing the paint on the walls really makes it feel like we are almost there! Take a look…

The laundry room needs one more coat of paint. I chose Behr’s Breaker which is a very faint gray blue.

Once the dark floor is down this color will really pop. I have a lot planned for this room, especially the wall in the second photo. Stay tuned!

    This is amazing–your board and batten is beautiful. We just did a few rooms last year, and now I want the whole house to have it!! It’s so fun and adds such character!! Love your basement!
