Al's basement



A couple of pic's of the basement we fixed up .Al's favorite room in the house and stays there as much as possible. We painted the old original cabinets black and put new knobs.We added the counter top I am sure it wouldn't pass a carpenters list but it works.We also painted the floors and walls..We had the old original sink hooked up and bought new faucets and toilet.He has a frig, projector and screen.This is also known as the smoking room .. we choose this type of furniture so it can be wiped off.
Al installed a ceiling fan and large exhaust..our only regret is not spraying the ceiling white before we got started it would have been much light. I am not crazy about anything underground but sure love it during the storms LOL..Amazing what you can do with a little paint and hard work..

Fabulous, Jacque! Wonder if I could get Roy to give up his messy workshop in our basement so we could have a room like this? I'd have to get you to come and decorate, though!

It looks great! Wow! Al has all the bells & whistles down there! A big screen & fridge, too? Niiiiiiiice! (What horns?)

You have a lovely home Jacque, but this basement is to-die-for! What a restful, spacious, and tasteful room! I am quite jealous.

The basement is great! My husband would love to have his own room with the fridge and bathroom.. he'd never come out!! The choice of furniture is perfect too.. I need some of that in my livingroom with all the kids.. It looks great and I think your countertop looks great as well!!
