I will get to how I saved over $700 part in a bit, but first I need to show you our cork floor. When I shared all the finishes I chose for the basement, I showed you a small sample of the cork floor. Here [...]
Do you watch Design Star or the new white box challenge show? Well, we have our own ultimate white box challenge going on over here. Instead of about 100 sq feet of blank white…we have over a 1,000 sq feet!!! Not sure we will get as conceptual as they encourage on the show, but we [...]
