The "after" of this basement isn't necessarily better than the photo above; beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder. But there's no arguing that this wood-paneled basement no longer looks the way it once did. Gone are the rustic vibes and striped upholstery the previous owners of this house had in this room. What is left after this complete makeover is the cozy, casual atmosphere in a lighter, brighter space.
