I’ve been surfing the net for basement inspiration.  Our basement is the one room that really bothers me.  No matter how I configured it, it just didn’t look right.  Now it seems I will get another chance at this room.  The disaster clean up guys came and took out all the flooring (there are four rooms downstairs) and some of the drywall.  Each room will get new carpet or tile, the walls will be repaired and painted and we’ll get new trim put in.  So, I have the joy of looking around for what it is that I want down there.

I found one photo of a really, really cost efficient idea that wowed me.  I would never, ever try this idea myself but I was totally impressed with what this guy did with $10 worth of Sharpie markers.  Check it out at:
