Exactly what I was thinking too. Funny thing is I have birds, deer and fish hanging above my head. I guess I never thought to decorate them. Heading off to the basement to freshin' up.

The trick is to only take pictures when it's clean BigGrin BigGrin My space has evolved since the picture posted here and right now it is in a definite state of disaster since I am in the middle of two big projects.

This may be silly for those with with the unfinished basements, but do you guys have dehumidifiers down there? The reason I ask, is that paper can act funny around moisture. So even if it is "dry" but there is excessive moisture, it has been known to cause a lot of jams in printers. Not sure if it would effect the Cricut cutting, but thought I would mention it if anyone was to start having problems.

I do clean it up, a bit.....it would take me ages to get it to the point of a picture I could post.

This brings up sooo many happy memories! When I lived in Toledo, OH and Williamsville, NY, we had basements. I painted the walls with a base layers of paint for cinderblock and then painted the color I wanted. In OH I had white paint on one half of the basement where I had my washer, dryer and sewing machine and the other half of the basement I painted gold for an office as I was working on my Bachelors Degree and needed the typewriter, etc. set up. I bought many cinderblocks, painted them also, and then bought shelving to put on top of them, stacked them up as high as I wanted to go. Took them with me when we moved to NY and painted the cinderblock walls yellow with a scalloped border across the top of the wall. This time I also painted the wooden ceiling and wires and pipes strung across it slso. I painted each board a different color going across the ceiling...one was white, then the next blue. then the next red, until I got to the other side of the room. The scallop across the top of the wall I outlined in black and then stripped it using red, white and blue like the ceiling. In other words, it was done like a circus tent. The medtal round studs going across the room I pained red and swirled wide white tape down them looking like circus tent poles. Then I put the cinderblocks and shelving (I painted each shelf a different color using the red, white and blue)and put the kids toys on them. I got red shag carpeting and had it installed and also had each step of the stairs carpeted (they were the kind that didn't have a back to them so they wrapped the carpeting around each step). So....the biggest cost was the carpeting, Then the paint. No ceiling tiles. I live in TX now and there are no basements Crying

We bought our house 6 years ago and I claimed the "finished" room in the basement. On the other side of my door is a total different area (exposed ceiling joist and cement walls and floors). I love my room but hate not having a window for sun.

Hopefully I can get pictues attached (first time on message board).

Well I couldn't figure that out. You can find my craftroom here.

Well, it looks like I may be joining the club for the unfinished basement club as I'm tired of packing up my craft stuff when I have guests come over. I have a temporary table set up in the guest bedroom, but tends to take up space when guests stay over night (My sis brings a lot of suitcases). Our basement is "dry" thanks to our dehumidifier, but tonight when I was downstairs doing a preliminary sweeping/cleaning to claim my space, I noticed some of the cardboard for the games my DH threw down there felt kind of clammy/wet like they had absorbed too much moisture. But they had been thrown around quite a bit before someone gave them to us. Has anyone had problems with their paper and the moisture? I don't want to lug everything down there to find out it won't work.

I'm kinda late to this discussion, but wanted to comment on the dehumidifier question. I don't know how your basement is set up, but mine is half unfinished (as you walk into basement) and then splinters off into rooms. I am in one of the rooms that is partially finished (walls done, but not the floor). I painted the floors and put down some big area rugs. It was a little moist when I decided to first move down so I bought a dehumidifier because I was also worried about my paper. I used it religiously for a few weeks to get things under control. That was almost a year ago and now I only need to run it maybe once every 2 weeks, if that. I'll turn it on for about 2 hours (it has 2 or 4 hours or continuous) sometimes while I'm working down there, but it's kinda noisy so I usually turn it on the timer when I'm not around. It cost me about $150, but it is so worth it. I can usually tell the minute I walk into my room if I need to turn it on for a while. Another thing that helped is I put up curtains in the doorway since there was no door. The curtains help keep any moisture and cold from the unfinished section from creeping into my area. Hope this helped. I think it is absolutely worth trying - I love being down there and even made sure to add my Direct TV in thereThumpUp LOL. I still do spider patrol when I walk in, but they have even kept away except for the occasional straggler (that is quickly dealt withSneaky ).
