It's far from perfect and far from finished, but it's definitely my personality.
You might be asking, "How can you justify painting the floor of a rental home?" or "Why did your landlord let you do that?" The reasoning is simple-
- The floor was leaking and needed sealing. It wasn't bad enough to resurface the entire floor, but it was enough that something needed to be done.
- Option 1 for him was to re-carpet the basement. However, since it needed to be sealed first, it just added to cost.
- I asked if I could just paint the floor to seal it. I'd do the labor myself if he paid for the paint. The landlord approved of the idea and just gave me a rent reduction for the cost of paint.
- This is a win-win for both of us. I got a sealed basement floor I could customize AND a rent reduction. The landlord got a sealed basement floor for very little cost AND I paid the rent.
