My first unfinished basement DIY project

This is our unfinished basement in our first house. This is also my first unfinished basement DIY project. I posted this DIY from my old blog. When I posted it, I said it would be a working progress but I never got to post the end result. So I decided to post it here.

These are the before pictures of our unfinished basement in our first house.

 

And this is what I did to it.

 

Here are some before and after pictures.

All the steps of how I turned our first house unfinished basement is on the old blog and also you will see more pictures. With this DIY experience. I did the same thing with our unfinished basement in our house right now. We are able to enjoy the unfinished basement. With a little budget, a little bit of elbow grease (ok maybe a lot of it), and a bit of creativity you can make your unfinished basement feel like a finished basement without spending thousands of dollars.

    Love it! I started doing this year’s ago when I started on my “basement reclamation”. My objective was making the basement into usable play space-without spending too much money. Inexpensive curtains, I painted the ceiling bright white, and added old christmas lights, and painted walls and pipes/ducts where I could.
