DIY: My Basement Project

Disclaimer / A little back story:

I am probably one of the most UNHANDY people I know.  But I never stop trying to improve. 

Thus, any suggestions I offer or processes I use are not necessarily the best.

Anyways, the basement in my house is in rough shape and hasn’t been taken care of in years.  I’ve been wanting to make SOMETHING out of it, though.  Mainly an extra room for my kids to play.

I will be sharing my journey in trying to transform my basement on a budget.  Please follow along 🙂

I figure I don’t have a lot to lose with this project (can’t mess it up too much more!).

One other thing to note – I do not have a lot of time & money to spend on things like this.  Therefore I will be trying to find the least cost effective ways/items to do so.  However, there are a few things I’ll need professionally fixed: the ceiling and carpeting on the stairs leading down.



  • Paint over wood paneling
  • Paint trim (in progress)
  • Floor – Interlocking Foam Flooring + Area Rug
