Right now, our basement is pretty much a cement-lined hole in the ground with a pock-marked drywall ceiling. (The holes in the ceiling were from our remodel when they needed to run new pipes or access existing ones.) I'm hoping we're going to install insulation and some framing with outlets along the cement walls. And a decent floor would be nice. And removable ceiling panels would be wonderful.
This is the general furniture arrangement I'm thinking about, using furniture we already own (except for the TV console).

Sand Dune if they have it at our local store.
All the walls, and probably the ceiling, will be painted Hubbard Squash. We have TONS of hubbard squash paint leftover from the upstairs painting project. I don't know what I was thinking when I calculated how much we needed. I must have expected to do more coats, or paint the ceilings, or something, because we have more than 5 gallons left! And that paint was expensive! So, we're gonna use it.
I dropped by the library today and picked up a few books on finishing basements, so now I'm poring over those to see if I can figure out what to do about our uneven floors.
