Hello Basement!

Since we moved in, the basement has pretty much been used as our storage area and that is it!  This is all due to the fact that it had pink commercial grade carpet just laying on the concrete, along with a little hodge-podged linoleum and stained blue carpet in the spare room.  Needless to say, we needed new flooring before we were going to spend time down there. 

Take a look at what it looked like before today:

I guess the basement wasn't picture worthy when we first moved in.  This is the best picture I have of the pink carpet in the living room area.

The blue carpet in the guest bedroom:

And the hodge-podged linoleum that went from the bathroom out in to the living area.  What you can't see in this picture is the gross black stains around the toilet and tub.

And as of ten minutes ago, this is what we have to work with now:
A carpeted living room and guest bedroom

And a tiled bathroom (excuse the fact that I was so excited to take pictures that I haven't vacuumed or swept yet, or filed nail holes on the trim)

And you may have noticed, the trim is all white now and the walls are painted as well.  My awesome mother-in-law and sister-in-law slaved away helped me tackle that project over the past few days!
