Everything You Need to Decorate a Dark Basement or Family Room
When I look at my analytics, the thing that tells me what a lot of you are searching for on my blog, there are 3 main topics that come up every week…
- How much wine is too much wine?
- How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
- How to decorate/paint a dark basement
So, while I can’t answer the first 2 questions, I can tell you that I am on my 3rd coffee and 1st glass of wine of the day and that just might explain everything.
Now for those dark basements. This is a topic that I have covered extensively in the last few years and if you are new to my blog, you might not be aware of the articles I’ve written covering almost EVERY aspect of decorating a dark basement or family room…
