Basement Remodel: paint on the walls

I was going to wait to share this update until I actually painted the walls with color but I do not know when I will find the time for that.  The transformation with just some primer and ceiling paint seems dramatic enough to share now.

I originally hoped to paint the ceiling a nice, bright white but the painters informed me that it would quickly turn orange with the rust of the metal beams and the tannins in the wood so we decided to go with the low maintenance black.

I was afraid it would make the space really dark but I really love how it turned out.  Again, anything is better than the way it was before.

Here are a few more shots of the basement with primer.

The contractor comes back Thursday to finish up the woodwork, trim and stairs so I'm going to try and get the basement painted by then but it's a busy week for me so we'll see if that actually happens.  I've decided to paint the entire space Quiet Moments by Benjamin Moore.

Once the paint and woodwork are complete - finger crossed - this week, the carpet should be installed next week!  Almost done and ready for the big reveal!

I love your color choice, Jessica! It's refreshing to the eyes and reflects more light in your room. I might also consider a white ceiling, yet I love how your black one turned out. Any update about the renovation? I'll wait for the big reveal! :)
