2012 - Basement demo


Framed the door, the rest of the bulkhead and the remainder of the short wall.

I also built a cabinet for my in wall shelf. This is made of 1/2 Sandeply. Now the question is, do I just prime and paint white or stain.... If I stain I'd use the dark red with a poly over it, but I'm leaning toward painting for simplicity for the rest of the room...

Stain looks good on the right.

It will have a nice custom look to it then.

Thanks Eric. Even if I plan on having white baseboard and using white trim for the cabinet? That would still look ok?

If I go ahead and stain it and don't like how it looks. Can I got over it with some Zinsser BIN and then over top of that with any type of paint?

I ended up going with paint just to keep the look the same throughout the house. I used Zinsser BIN (2 coats). Goes on very runny but dries within 15 min or so. There were a few knots in the wood and on the second coat they were completely gone. Great stuff.

I also started framing the wall for the laundry.

Got the outline of the laundry room and started to box out the small HVAC duct work.
