This last rainfall solidified, at least in my mind, big-time basement renovations were going to have to wait. Maybe forever. Who puts up drywall and lays carpet in an area that leaks when it rains?
But I had to do something. The ugly, dreary paneling was getting to me.
So, after the rainfall and before the clean-up, I painted. A bright, cheery yellow. And the kids helped me paint, which was fun.
Yes, yes, I need an after picture. Yet here I sit on my sofa with a cup of coffee that is both the perfect temperature and the right combination of coffee and cream. Oh, and all three kids are still asleep. So no, I will not go snap a picture just now. Blame laziness, blame selfishness, say what you like, but I am not moving from this spot just yet. Later. I'll take an after picture later.
I won't say that I love it down there now, but I like it much, much more than I did before. It certainly is bright and cheerful now and, besides dry, what else can a homeowner ask for?
