Under Stairs Update # 3?

I've been doing this for so long, I don't even remember what number I'm on...Here's where we are...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel...  As you can see....the giant pipe that I thought was going to be a problem has been strategically removed...(the previous owner from over 10 years ago replaced the water heater and since he wasn't as brave as I am...and didn't cut a hole in the wall to access this room...he left the pipe in there...so Dad discovered it wasn't connected to anything....we ripped it out...(yes, we did have access to the room it was leading to so it wasn't a Jack Bauer mission or anything like that, it was pretty simple, and opened the place up a lot!)...





The inspector had to check it out for herself...just to see where we stand as far as finishing this thing....





"Yep, I'm sure this right here needs caulked or something..."


I did finish the board and batten wall.  I can't wait to tell you all about it and what I'm doing differently next time.....(only half of it's painted because I ran out of paint!)


Here's the only unfinished part....I'll do it tomorrow am....(hopefully)...


If I was a kid....I'd TOTALLY want to live here....ok...so I'm nowhere close to being a kid...but I still would live here....

THOSE trim pieces were a ......BLLLLEEEEEPPPPPPPP...

Do you see the light yet?

Here's what I have left:
-Finish rail by stairs (trim and top)
-(re)design gallery wall....
-Paint trim (Loft, baseboards, and B&B wall....sand...fill...repeat)
-Paint entire wall to the left....and above clubhouse door....
-Trim clubhouse door

-Finish inside of clubhouse...which includes but is not limited to...
    -Hang Bead board wallpaper
    -Put up chair rail....
    -Finish built in book rack holder thingies....
    -Make curtins (out of none other than...burlap)
    -Make "faux skirt....(again out of burlap)
    -Put up crown molding...yes, on the inside...why not trick it out?!?!?
    -Paint inside of clubhouse (a few parts of it with accent colors)...I'll show you the     swatches tomorrow...
    -Lay carpet pad and carpet....

AWESOMENESS....THINK I'LL HAVE IT READY FOR THE REVEAL ON MONDAY??!?!?!?  HOW MUCH YOU WANNA BET?!?!?!?  Okay, maybe all except the wall....I'm still trying out different layouts...
