The good news is, the finished part of the basement is even bigger than we thought.

It was also a darker colour than we thought and took more coats than we thought it would. I think that we were actively painting for about eight hours. And that was after we cleaned all the melted wax, jammy handprints, coffee stains, and other miscellaneous gross stuff that I don't want to think about off the wall.
But once we're all done (yes, we still need to do another coat in some places, even after eight hours), it's going to be awesome. There is more than enough room for a whole load of kids' junk, as well as a corner to tuck a daybed for when Husband's mum comes to visit, a reading corner, and somewhere to watch TV.
|The pictures are kind of crappy, and this is just two corners, but you get the gist.|
While I picked the colour because it was pretty, it is also a very satisfying name to yell as a curse when you realise it's midnight and you're not even half done the job.
