It's Finished!

After my last post, we finished putting up the remaining baseboard. Then I scooted around the basement and put one last coat of paint on it to cover all the nailheads and scuff marks from where I hit it with the hammer. Then we swept and mopped the floors about 10 times. We had purchased some floor cleaner and polish that was made by the same company that did our floors and we applied that in the living room and were pretty displeased with the results. It left a blue haze in a lot of areas. David is looking into what we want to do about that, if anything. I am leaning more towards seeing if it goes away with time.

Now, after 6 months of working all day, then spending all evening in the basement, after every weekend being spent downstairs, after countless, "Well, I guess we should get to work downstairs..." "Yeah, I guess so...", I can seriously say that the basement is finished! We are planning to move furniture down today, but before we got started with that, I took some pictures of each room in their fresh, empty state. I'll also be adding some "before" pictures that I took when David first bought the house.

Enjoy! I know I am!!
