The Grand Finale

When my Mom got to the end of the first post in this series, she said "Oh no! Not a continuation! I hate continuations." And then I went and made ya'll wait the weekend. So, without further ado, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

We had four different colors going on in the basement, so we decided to give it a more unified look. We chose Biscuit.

Although our basement has a tendency to flood, we really wanted carpet in the bedrooms. It just makes it feel more homey. The carpet expert we talked to recommended that we ditch the carpet pad. If it does flood again, he said, then we won't have to pull up the pad, we can just shop vac the water right up.

This was, by far, the hardest decision. We couldn't decide between ceramic tile (expensive!!), peel-and-stick tile (may pop up if it floods) and painting the concrete (may bubble if it floods). One day we were chatting about it with Cassie's BF Trent, when he suggested VCT (vinyl composition tile). It turned out to be the perfect choice for our budget and flooding concerns.

Two weekends and a lot of sweat later ...

What kind of blog would this be if it didn't feature some cute babies?

Thanks to all who helped! And those who woulda if they coulda! (Looking at you, Johnny and Carrie!)

For the record, that is the coolest/best I've ever seen that basement.
