You guys did a superb job. It really looks cozy and welcoming now.


What a great job! I love the shower curtain wall hanging thing.


Looks awesome! Love the black drapes hanging, great solution for blocking off the space. We are going to be trying out the fabric over stretcher bars for our family room. It's such a great idea!

It looks great! What an amazing amount of work to undertake in a week! Great job! :)


oh wow!! it looks fantastic! you guys did a great job!!

i love the show curtain turned wall hanging - such a clever idea and it looks fantastic!

happy new year to you!


great job! you made an incredible change spending less!! we also made some changes in our laundry room (who is in the same place as my sewing room) and really is exciting once you finish all the (dusty) process!!

Your basement (before) looks like my basement (now). I even have the same cement laundry tub that I painted white last summer. I have been thinking for a while how to redo it, without actually remodeling! So this is perfect inspiration for me! I love the idea of painting the ceiling instead up putting up a drop ceiling and using curtains to partition the space. Brilliant! Maybe this would be a good project for the summer! Thanks, and happy new year!


Wow! It looks great!


The basement looks fantastic! You did such a great job and it is so innovative. You should send this on to Design Sponge to show off your before and after shots. It is really inspiring. Happy New Year!


It looks great! What an innovative way to make such a huge transformation.


That'a amazing! I love what you guys did with it... I'm trying to talk myself into finally painting our bedroom, but everytime I think about moving furniture I change my mind lol


This is FABULOUS!!!!!!!! I had a friend who spray painted the entire basement ceiling black, he said it made the ceiling just disappear - I never did get to see it, as he sold it right after, but now I understand - what an amazing transformation! You guys did a wonderful job, it's such a grown-up, clean space now. I LOVE it!


You guys did an amazing job! Wow, I can't believe the transformation! I am jealous of all the extra space you have.


This is a great make over...~ painting is always painful... :p but the result is superb! Happy new year to you & your family!


Wow, what an undertaking! It looks fantastic. You guys really spruced it up nicely. How nice for you to enjoy it now.


Great job! I can appreciate all the sweat (and tears) that probably went into this! We hired professionals a few years back to re-do half of our basement. The other half is what I've been cleaning and sprucing up. More for storage, ironing, and projects than for relaxing in. I'm getting ready for my big unveil too. You're an inspiration. And isn't picture-taking a pain in the dark?


excellent makeover! It definitely looks more cozy now. Congratulations on a job well DONE!


looks great! I hope you two enjoy using it!


It looks fantastic! It also looks like a lot of hard work. I really love the tree fabric that you turned into a canvas. Love it! Enjoy your new space.


wow- what a transformation!!!
it looks incredible! i love the tree fabric canvas idea- brilliant!


Nice, I love it! And one of my fav things is the shower curtain art, lol :)


Hi, I'm new to reading your blog. It showed up on my Google Reader Recommendations page! I have enjoyed reading about your projects and tidbits of your life. You so remind me of myself, my bf, and our one cat. The basement looks great!


Great job! It looks like a ton of work!

And that little closet? My parents have one that's almost identical -- it's a fruit cellar! That's where you're supposed to store all your canning -- in case you're ever inspired do any...


wow, rebekah. an amazing transformation. i've wanted to do that ceiling think in the basement of the townhome...never did. i'll bet that was loads of work.


You guys are so amazing! It looks great!


Your ceiling is sweet. I plan on painting mine black too. Did you use a primer or a thinner in your paint. Thanks


This looks awesome!! I'm so psyched to get started on my basement that looks exactly like your "before" pics. I couldn't figure out how I was going to inexpensively do the ceiling. Great Job!
