I know I've been terrible about keeping you updated on the basement.
But truth be told, we are making progress slower than molasses.
It might have something to do with our new TV.
But I'd rather not say...
I knew it would happen.
Once you've moved in, it's easy to postpone things.
I can't believe I'm even showing you that picture...
But now you don't have to wonder why I haven't been doing any basement posts.
Last week The Agronomist crossed mortaring the brick wall
off the basement "to do" list.
And yes, I am still planning on painting it.
Look past the the brick and look at the colour.
It's pinky grey, like a bad 80's shag rug.
I'm afraid it has to go.
I know I know it looks grey here, but it's pink, trust me.
And yes, we installed my $30 retro railing.
Did I mention it is one of my favourite parts of the basement?
The railing matches perfectly with the drawer to the left.
That set of drawers is my second favourite item in the basement.
It was part of my Oma and Opa's bedroom set.
My mom went to help my Opa go and buy the set for an anniversary gift.
Sentimental and cool retro all wrapped up into one great piece.
The Agronomist also installed a second window
to fill the space beside the stained glass;
creating a wood frame to match the old window.
This photo was taken at night so I'm not able to
show you how the light comes streaming in through the day.
This post is just a teaser I know.
We are planning to finish up many projects this weekend.
Next week I will have some full room shots for you.
Definitely not finished but getting there...
Slow and Steady wins the race...
as long as you stop watching American Idol long enough to cross the finish line.
