It seems like ages ago we started working getting the cellar into a reasonably comfortable man room but I'm finally calling it finished. There are a few more things I'd like to change and Mr. Limestone seems to think the TV is not large enough (this is a perpetual debate in our house) but I'm happy with how its looking today.
This space is mostly for the Mr. so he picked the finishes (specifically the paint color and floor tiles) and I did the rest with his approval. Obviously its a totally different style than the rest of the house but I like to think it reflects my husbands sense of adventure. Despite there being some pretty big limitations (those poles! no natural light! lots of doors!), it still feels open and has a good flow.
Added bonus: Its just about the only room in the house where there are no toys or other evidence of living with a 1 year old. Only time will tell how long that with last.
