This week has been all about my love affair with basements and laundry rooms. My basement has been remodeled twice in the last two years due to a faulty sump pump that flooded it a few months after it was completed. So we had to remodel again, this time we had to change a few things but it came out better than before. Photos is the before we even started the first remodel and it lead to a dark paneled basement. We painted and then added framed photos and mementos from places that we had travelled. There are still spots for more items but just don't wanted it to look to cluttered. The color looks really red but it is little darker and is called Rodeo Red (Ralph Lauren). It doesn't look much like the entrance to a dungeon any longer.
