Painting the basement

Yes, we are finally re-painting our Purple Room, the basement....

At last!

Our handy helpers

We did this last Friday and Saturday. We colored the Movie area using a paint called "Delicate Mist" from Bher. I will show you the final result later on.

In choosing paint, we went for a FLAT finish so as not to reflect any light from our movie screen. Paint comes in all sorts of finishes for indoors, the most common are FLAT, SATIN and EGGSHELL. As the names Satin and eggshell implies, these have a bit of sheen to it. Definitely not ideal for our Media room. Also we got paint that is both primer and paint so as to save time, money and energy.

The living/gaming area will be colored "chocolate froth" (yum!).  As with any painting job, the prep work (e.g. moving the furniture, protecting the floors, taping the borders and baseboards) takes far longer time than the actual painting itself.  Paint dries pretty quickly so you see the results right away.

We are also in the process of re-doing our "horrid" floors. So I will eventually post about the entire re-do here soon.

Have a great day!!!!
