Basement update

Well, the basement was framed in March and progress came to a halt. Then, in September, we found out we were having a baby, and things quickly got moving again. Our 'guest room' upstairs will be a nursery in no time, and we need to have more space to host family and friends who are planning on visiting the new addition! Electric, plumbing, insulation and drywall were the big projects that needed to be completed. Today that was accomplished. Next up painting, tiling the bathroom, flooring, doors and trim. 15 weeks and counting...........
25 weeks pregnant. We have 15 weeks to get the basement finished.

Rough in electric was completed in November, which allowed us to get the insulation installed in December.
Man Cave' insulated.

This will be the shower in the guest bathroom.

Dry Wall was up in January and was finally completed today. View of Man Cave towards Guest Bathroom and Bedroom

Dresser project

This past summer I decided we needed some new furniture in the house. I wanted to try my hand at 'furniture restoration' so I scrolled through some local Craig Lists listings and came across this dresser in East Vail. I decided it was going to be my new project.  I think it turned out pretty good!

Picked this beauty up for $50 on Craig's list

Sanded, stained the top, painted the base and spray painted the handles.

Found a new home in the guest room.
