Our Basement Is Finally Finished !!
 
4 Attachment(s)
It took us about 6 months to finish our basement from framing to completion. My husband I did all the work ourselves, which we are really proud of. We also would like to thank everyone on this site for your help and advise.

Very nicely done. Excellent job and excellent choice of colors, layout, and materials.

Thanks for posting the pictures.

Wow, looks fantastic! great job!

I've got a basement lined with wood paneling, want to come and switch it out with drywall for me? :laughing:

It looks sharp as a tack! How does it look at night with the lights on? Those lights look very "spotlighty" to invent a word.

We took our time from the actual planning of the layout to the products we used to finish it. We did ALOT of leg work, going around our area, checking out products, costs, the best product to use in the basement. My husband did major research on the electrical and framing, asking local trades and of course the wonderful DIY chatroom!

If you have anymore questions about the products we used I would be glad to help you.

Thank you! We actually used 1 x 6 MDF with 1/4 round. Glued and nailed together it gave the column a rounded effect. The top and bottom we used crown moulding and filled the inside of the column with foam. We were quite pleased with the way the columns turned out.

Regards,
Kim

I have a question, what did you use to frame around the ductwork ?? Looks like 1 x 2 perhaps ??

Yes, that is exactly what we used.

The accent wall was Benjamin Moore H163 duxbury gray

The other wall was a custom color copied off of Farrow & Ball (Light Blue)

Thanks, another question if I may. Why the blocking between studs ?
