The basement had one light on a broken chain and no walls or finishing (just support posts) when we bought our home. Over the years we built the walls and rooms, wired the various areas of the basement, painted, added a bathroom, moved the washer and dryer upstairs, added lino, put in baseboard heating in three of the rooms and this year replaced our 1981 gas furnace with a Heat Pump/gas furnace/AC. This was a big WOW for us.
This room was also my sewing room for about 20 years. Loved having a sewing space. Added a bed when the laundry moved upstairs and it became a guest space too. About 7 years ago it became a bedroom for a little boy (DGS). The peach walls remained but the sewing machines and supplies and book collections moved into boxes and shelves in other areas. No blogs in those days so very few photos of this room.
DGS turned 9 this month and it was time to update his room. Took anything movable out, shared out his outgrown books and toys to friends. I spacked, sanded, packed and moved stuff, sorted and put things back.Painting included one coat of Kilz and two coats of monamel blue (his favourite colour). Ceiling also got painted (flat white latex). Spread the work over 3 days, (thanks to the kindness and love of a very dear friend who did ALL the painting ).
Added brown curtains (his other favourite colour). Put his current books and toys back on the shelves. Still need to replace the duvet but no rush. More personalized wall decorations still to come. Changed the desk for a narrow table. Headboard replacement project in the future too. Exercise bike will be getting a new home and a brown dresser will be added. I still use the wall cupboards (hence the plastic closures).
