Aside from the basement's hideous-ness, some GOOD qualities about choosing me and my basement are that I've scored some absolutely amazing mid century furniture furniture over the past year at thrift stores/garage sales, so if you came here, you'd have some pretty cool stuff to work with. Also, upstate New York is absolutely gorgeous in the fall, so you really can't go wrong.
I am no stranger to DIY projects and hard work, but this room really stumps me! I would LOVE to get the chance to work with you and hear all of your fantastic ideas. It would be the ultimate source of inspiration :)
