Basement renovation: 2 of 3


Basement renovation blogpost number 2.

Still have a little bit to do, but consider this project ready to be shown to you!

So much is done since I started renovating late desmeber 2014.

Love the new warm concrete floor. It`s made in two floors. Only a few inches difference. When my friends are over we actually hang out in the new basement. It has such a good atmosphere!

The stairs leading up to the first floor are original. A little steep, but they do their job! They were in such a bad condition, covered with old grey vinyl, plenty of glue and varnish. Removed both, made a smooth surface and painted them grey.

The antlers are from around Rosendal somewhere, thanks Stig O.

Smartpanel covers this section of the basement. Choose those without any profil to keep the look simple.

Read exactly was done in an earlier blogpost here

DSC_4748 Interior from: The lamp is a gift I recieved when I was 19 years old! It has followed me since! The table is designed by Piet Hein from Fritz Hansen, bought several years ago. The chairs are a mix of old wooden chairs. Except the white wooden Arne Jacobsen chair, from Fritz Hansen too. Wall shelves from Ikea, cupboard to the left from someone I know in Rosendal, made in Rosendal! The beautiful green vase is 2lips from Holmegaard. The round mirror is secondhand. Framed picture from HIlde Mork. And Anne C thanks for that sweet green Omvikdalen plant!! DSC_4713This room, picture above, where the table is, used to be tree small rooms, can you imagine?IMG_5829A giant steel load bearing beem replaced the earlier supporting wall. It was so rusty. I sanded it and painted it with a Bengalack paint that prevents rust.DSC_0750These last two pictures are the wall where the shelves are hanging today.  IMG_5831IMG_6875
