He turned an icky section of the basement that looked like this-
Because Mr. Cabin loathes spackling and sanding we decided not use traditional sheetrock. He suggested this beadboard paneling and because I love the cottage look of beadboard, I was all for it.
I wanted to leave the beams exposed in the ceiling but they were pretty disgusting and Mr. Cabin said it wouldn't look good so instead he used cedar planking.
I love the rustic combination of the cedar and the beadboard.
Mr. Cabin suprized me with these recessed lights and trim rings.
We used carpet tiles on the floor. The floor is very uneven so this was the easiest option.
Now that the building is done, it is my turn to decorate and turn it into an exercise room.
It has to be one heck of an inviting and invigorating space that I will use all the time. If I don't, Mr.Cabin has threathened to turn the room into his video game lounge!
