Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive. (Mt 21:22) And, this is how we aim to proceed in our basement revamp. We are prayerfully asking for the grace to continue with this project for the good of the family, and for our friends when they come to visit us. Hopefully, they will see Christ in our efforts and in the final product.
There is still so much to do. Where to begin? Well, of course, we tried to start with getting new, inexpensive furniture items that would create a space suitable for kids who are no longer playing with toddler toys. That was absolutely the wrong place to start. We are no where near the point of space planning in that basement. So, I said a prayer and gently convinced my very excited catalog browsers that we needed to step back and look at finishing the prep work.
So, we took a deep breath and then, a trip to the paint store. We looked at color chips and asked about primers. We priced out a couple of paint necessities and discussed the disposition of the flooring -- whether it stays or goes. (This is fodder for another blog post -- the big basement flood). We settled on a couple of grey tones with a silver/blueish hue. Hooray, new motivation to get the rest of the messy cleanup and prep work done.
