Basement To-Do list

Now that the painting is finally done it is time to decorate the basement. We have a need for 3 different and distinct area in one space so this will be a design challenge and an excuse to do some shopping purging.

We are still trying to figure out what to do with the "ugly" wall, so for now it stays and we'll just pretend that it doesn't exist.

Here's my basement To-Do list:

* Window Treatments (can't keep this awesome newspaper forever)
* Area for workout equipment
* Craft Area
*Organize Crafts
*TV Area with seating
*Organize Books
*Organize Movies and Video Games
*Organize board games
*Figure out a way to cover hideous spiked wall
* Paint Trim
* Wall art

Here's a closeup of the colors that I chose for my craft space/play room. The pale yellow is Valspar's Yellow Bliss and the dark pink is Valspar's Strawberry Pink.

You can find my before pics of my basement here.


  1. Looks like you'll be busy. The progress you've made, must make you happy and motivated to finish the rest. I am slightly jealous that you'll have your own crafting space...lucky :)

    1. I do have to share the space with my girls for their playroom but I'll take what I can get.

  2. I love blogging when it is for or about something I believe in. I also read news blogs often and find that it makes me feel much more intelligent every time I read them. I also feel like I am a pretty good person who tries to treat others with respect, no matter what their view is. There are some real haters out there. Thanks again. I learned a few things about blogging. I will definitely put your site on my speed dial. Water damage repair Phoenix
