Our house is about 1200 sq ft on the main level and that’s basically where we live.
It’s looks pretty small from the street.
But then there is a surprising additional 1200 sq ft basement.
About half of it is storage space. When we finally are ready to sell it, I am going to make sure the realtor markets it to hoarders.
It would be perfect for a hoarder.
Anyway, the dungeon has a decent sized living area, a full bathroom, walk-in closet and an incredibly large bedroom.
Well if you have been following my blog for a while you might remember when I freshened up the living area and bathroom in this post from last year.
And while it definitely made the room less dingy, I didn’t love the wall color (ps I didn’t pick it).
But I left it alone for a year…
One of my stepsons usually calls the basement bedroom his but since he is off at college now, I thought it would be a great time to really give the whole space an up-do.
Total cost for the project:
- $120- 3 gal paint plus supplies (HGTV Sherwin Williams Satin, I LOVE this paint)
- $0 (store credit)- hardware for a dresser
Here are the before photos: the room has a desk, futon, king size bed, and dresser.
Tada, the paint helped immensely.
Like my stepson said after seeing it, “Cozy.”
So the dungeon bedroom is no longer a dungeon.
