I had to have a total hip replacement ~ *sigh* ~
It went really well and now I'm walking and climbing stairs and ready to rock-n-roll on the basement! When I last posted about this project we had just finished the drywall and had the carpet installed (you can see it here: Basement - Stage I). The next step was to get the lights up and hang doors. We used pre-hung doors - a little more money but such a time saver! They come already in the frame, you simply pop off the back of the frame, slide them into the opening, level the door using shims and put the frame back on. We have five doors down there and the whole project was done in less then a day.
Then came the fun part.... paint!
Painting the doors is something that I really stressed over. I love to paint, I just really don't usually love painted doors or trim. I normally paint both with a bright white. I do this because I love color and I change my mind a lot. It's easier to paint a wall then it is to paint a lot of trim! BUT - I want the basement to be bright colors ~ really bright. I found a poster that I really loved and decided to use it as my color inspiration -
The winning colors are ~ Sea Frolic and Pumpkin Custard.
All the doors are this beautiful bright orange!
I'm really happy with the color and really glad that I decided to paint the doors, the color makes me very happy.
Now I just have to find a free day to get those walls started! Stay tuned for Part III....
