Basement update

Here are some updated photos of the basement project. Currently, we are finishing up the tile floor and painting (the two things we decided to do ourselves to save some money.) I will be SO GLAD when we are finished with that (hopefully by this weekend)!

Finished drywall, pre-paint and tile:
(P.S. We didn't end up using either of the paint swatches you see in these pics [too dark], as you'll see in photos a little further down.)

Mid-paint and tile:

Office (Paint: Behr – Antique Tin)

Kitchenette/Family Room (Paint: Sherwin-Williams – Argos; Porcelain Tile: Ibiza Bone from Lowe's)

The bathroom is also painted (Sherwin-Williams – Gateway Gray), but because there is no lighting set up in there yet, it's hard to get a good picture in there.

Now I'm off to go paint (the bedroom today) while Owen naps (which is how I've spent every naptime for the last week and a half). Then, all that's left is the toy/play room!


  1. Wow! Everything looks AWESOME! Hang in there!

  2. Lookin' good there Peterson clan! Lovin' it. Can't wait to see it in person!

  3. All of that hard work will pay off! Looks awesome so far!

  4. OH MY GOSH!!! your basement looks amazing!!!!!! i love it all - can't wait to see the finished product. the colors you've chosen look great and it all seems to be coming together beautifully. i'm sure it is a lot of hard work, but it is definitely paying off! love love love
