When we bought our house 3 years ago we were thrilled with the large basement. Our previous house did not have one, and we vowed we would never buy another house without one. So we love having all that storage and open space for a weight lifting area and kids play area. However it isn’t finished, and up till now most of it has been unpainted and was very dark and dingy.  Here is before we started painting.

This is my grocery stockpile area after we painted it.

This is the area for the kids’ toys after some cheery paint!
It’s not finished off, and we still have lots we want to do down here, but it still amazes me how much lightness a creamy yellow paint can bring to a dingy basement
