ah, the basement. at the moment, we don't have one but my parents do. and it needs a lift. a huge one. i want to break down the bar. make a little kitchenette. paint it white and de-mouldify like crazy. i am always in awe of spaces like the ones below where it doesn't even seem like a basement. how do they do this? can i do it too? please? basements don't have to be dingy forever right?
