Rerun of a Rerun

My basement entrance is back in print again!

Better homes and Gardens recently republished their special interest publication “100 Decorating Ideas – Big Style for Small Rooms.” So in case you missed it the first time around in August of 2010, here it is again.


My basement entrance is idea number eighty-six.

The original story (shown below) about my basement remodel appeared in the July 2009 edition of Better Homes and Gardens – although the entrance picture included me in the photo. This article also featured pictures of the sitting area, play area and small space under the steps.

So I guess you can call this a rerun of a rerun! Hope you didn’t mind seeing it again.

How fun to be featured BHG -- your basement renovation is so servicable. Love the bench with the baskets for the shoes -- and of course I love the green. Joni

I am so glad they ran this story again, I think it is one of the cleverest (is that a word?) ways to finish out a basement I have ever seen. I look at it often and study all the details that you put into it! Thanks for sharing it with us again!

It's beautiful!! And I can't even believe that your house really looks that way! It's amazing! I guess anyone can really have a super awesome house if they put their mind to it.=)

I adore your basement. In fact, I have it bookmarked in my inspiration folder, to hopefully get inspiration from for my new home =)

vintage vine said...

I still have the original issue that your basement was in....awhile back when I started lurking on decor blogs I found yours and was almost dumbfounded that you were the person who did that basement...I kept the original issue because that basement was so inspirational. To funny you mention this today, because I don't think I would have ever told you this unless you brought it up...Congrats on the rerun!

Nancy said...

Congrats again on your rerun. I also remember when BHG featured your space in July 2009. You did such a great job. I was just wondering, can you subscribe to the special publications or are they only available in the stores? Thanks.

Between Blue and Yellow said...

So neat! Your basement is beautiful, can you share what kind of paint you used on the floors. We are going to paint ours as well, and not sure the right way to go about it.

Red Door Home said...

We used Behr heavy duty garage and concrete floor paint added Behr non-skid floor finish additive. It has held up very well and I am pleased with how it looks. Thanks for the question.

Chris said...

And I am STILL madly in love with every aspect of this room! You deserve the feature!
