Welcome to my blog. Here I have tried to capture the adventures of our little family and the trials and tribulations of our never ending garden project(s). Take a look around and leave a comment if you wish. Thanks for stopping by. Jer.


Basement reno

We moved into this house in April of 08. At that time the basement was lime green with a dayglo orange accent - very nice! I guess the former owners just used it as a big play area for the kids and decided to let them pick the colours.
Well, thankfully the big stuff was done, wiring, flooring and drywall, so putting our touch on the basement was not as drastic as it might have been in an unfinished space...mostly paint and cosmetic touches.

Here is our nearly finished product. I am searching for 'before' pics just so the previous colour can be "appreciated".
The new colours are Woodlake (grey/brown) and Chipotle (accent) wall. Both C2 colours.
The credenza holding the TV was a great find by Nina at Value Village for 25.00. It was originally a honey oak colour office credenza that I stripped, refinished and replaced the hardware.
We are pretty happy with the outcome. Now we are going to focus on the kids playroom...which as a striking reminder is still lime green!
