Last night I put the final coat on floor but there is still ¼ of the unfinished basement floor left and ¾ of the north wall to do before I can cross this project off my list. The floor section I have been working on was divided into 3 sections. I just could not figure out a way to paint the floor as one unit without painting me into a corner where I could not get to the basement sink to clean up or to the stairs without stepping into paint. The first section I painted was in front of the staircase, next in the northeast corner and last along the north side of the staircase.
Last weekend I started to clear out the next section of floor to be worked on. This involved defrosting the chest freezer (which badly needed to be done away) and moving it temporary to the newly painted area in front of the stairs. Tonight I plan on buying shelving to setup in the painted northeast corner. Once the shelving is up I will move all the paint cans and laundry supplies out of the unfinished basement’s northwest corner. I plan finish cleaning that corner this weekend then I can start working on finishing the wall. It is hard to believe that I might finely finish this project!
