so about that basement i've been talking about forever. we've laid down backerboard and put thinset on all the seams. the tile guy is coming this week to set and grout the slate tile we've picked out.
here's what we found last night:
we're going to put beadboard up on the walls, below the trim, and wallpaper the top with grasscloth.
and that will be all well and good, but then what do you do with a room with two columns in the middle of it?
its a rectangle room, with windows on each of the short sides. there are french doors and a big window on one long side, and a door to the unfinished basement part on the other long side.
what, pray tell, do we do with this? we'd like to have a couch, a TV, a drum set, a book shelf, a nintendo wii (someone needs to get me one first) and a dog down here.
