The bars in the window is our way of making the landing safer. We wanted to do something to the window, just in case someone ever fell down the stairs (or tripped while performing a pole dance). Kev rigged up this barred window just for that. It's not finished yet, but this is what he has in mind. He still has to close in the one side of the landing. He's hoping to make it a hidden door and then we could use the space under the landing for storage.
I think he's nuts, but that's nothing unusual and usually, he manages to make it work and look nice. But I still think it would be easier to just look for new stove pipe.
Now, paint. Since I found almost a gallon of the same color of paint as is already on the walls, I wasn't going to change the color of the walls. BUT...I'm wondering if we have too much brown in the basement. So, if anyone has suggestions on a new wall color, let me know. My first thought was a nice yellow, but we have yellow upstairs. Then I thought about a nice blue color, but I want the basement to look and feel warm. So, I'm at a loss on what to do about the wall color.
Next aspect will be Kev finishing the window do-hickey, putting down transition strips between the tile and laminate, dusting again, and decide what we are going to do with the ceiling.
