Check out our updated basement! We carved out an area of our unfinished basement and created a colorful art room for our family. The previous basement, as shown in the next picture, was a hodgepodge of storage, old furniture and decor, and our workshop.

The new basement art room serves our craft storage needs and creates a fun media room for the family. An old couch and recycled carpet make the room feel cozier, and a 3'x4' flat file will store lots of crafts, art prints, and other materials.

    I noticed you painted cement block! Ive been told you can't paint them; they have to breathe. ??

      On the contrary. Proper paint seal the block and keep humidity out.

    Very nice and such a great way to use an otherwise underused space.
