Done! Finished! Complete!

Actually the title is a bit misleading as the project isn't actually totally, completely finished.  It is, however, oh so close and I didn't take any photos of the incomplete parts.  That's fair, isn't it?

The carpet was completed at about 7 PM on a Friday night.  Moments later, Brenda is busily sweeping up the residue and I'd say she was thinking about what furniture & decorations would go where but actually I think she'd all ready gotten it figured out long before this moment.

My turkey has been in our dining room for several years but it now has a new home.  For the first time, Brenda thinks it actually adds to the decor rather than detracts.  I like the way she thinks!

Looking the other way.  Brenda put a book shelf on the right side but I don't have a photo. 

South end.  (For my sisters-in-law) that would be the side facing the street!

Closer up view of ironing board, saw, drying rack and other assorted items that spruced  up this area.

Recessed area for office items. It's probably hard to identify the zebras on the wall above the desk.

Fireplace with lighting installed and decor in place.  Brenda had this ready about two hours after the first photo in this blog. 

That's it.  This should be the end of the Basement Blogs.  Those who have followed this project via my blogs probably wondered if surely there wasn't something else going on in our lives that we could blog about.  Actually aside from the previous blog about Kyle & Kalynn, there really hasn't been much as this project was the main event for the last 3 months.  Now that it is done we're looking forward to sitting down, relaxing and enjoying the room to the max...   oh wait, it's spring isn't it?  Gotta go mow the lawn, clean the garage, plant flowers, landscape around the new sidewalk the city just poured out front, plant some garden.  See you later
