A basement intervention (aka a fabulous MAKEOVER)

The Design Network - SpaceOff-8

This is a no judgement zone. So, please don’t judge our basement. It was full of furniture first acquired in college: a chair I found on the side of the road, a table from IKEA’s first collection, and a rug I think I may have accidentally took with me when I moved out of a roommate’s townhouse. Just maybe.

Anyway, it was a hot, hot mess.

Enter: The Design Network 

It’s like a video version of Pinterest.

They had two competing teams of designers design and makeover our basement. It’s the first time we’ve ever had actual, grown-up furniture in any part of our home.

Here’s the part that was downright terrible. WE HAD TO CHOOSE?

Do you think we made the right choice? I had hives I was so nervous. Let us know what you think in comments.

Watch the episode HERE.
