It's Done the Basement!

Finished Washer and Dryer Area
I put the final coat of paint on the basement floor today.  I restarted this project soon after Christmas.   I vacuumed and washed the area where the dryer and washing machine sits.  I turned on the dehumidifier to dry out the area and started painting floor on Saturday December 29 and finish it on New Year's Day.  I waited one week for the floor to cure before moving the machines back into place Monday evening January 7.

I had a lot of laundry to wash and dry since it had been a week and half the machine were out of commission.  I finally starting cleaning and washing floor the following Sunday and again turned on the dehumidifier and waiting until Friday January 18 to start painting on another four coats in the unfinished area.  

The last section to be painted.
Now I have another week for it to cure before I can move my freezer back along the wall that divides my sewing room and the unfinished basement.   Hopefully the weather will be below zero so I can defrosted and clean the freezer next Monday.  I move all the food from the freezer on the back porch while the freezer defrosts. 

My next project will be cleaning and sorting my stuff in the basement.  I would like to get it put back together by spring.  I also will be starting my plants from seed over the next few months starting this week.  Yesterday is only 16 weeks from Mother Day and it is time to start the geraniums for my planters.

A finished basement!!!
