The changes started small. First you covered the childhood murals in the basement with white a flat white pant. Next you convinced your husband to tear down the brightly colored shower curtains that he had so painstakingly hung two decades ago. Because you did not have the money to professionally finish the basement, you instead turned the basement into a great play space for your two daughters. With your youngest daughter heading off to college, you have finally decided that this is the time to help your basement grow up. By eliminating the childhood murals and the funky basement drapes, you are finally on your way to making the changes that you have wanted.
After those first small steps, you started the real preparations for finishing the basement. You have selected a low and thick shag carpet for the main room, and you are in the process of selecting a tile that will be used in both the small kitchen area and the bathroom.
