We are finishing in a room in our basement. We scored some white bead board paneling for dirt cheap and we are going to put down carpet. Originally we were going to do a Bulldogs (husband's a GA fan) theme and have the ceiling, (exposed flooor beams, duct work & ect) painted black, the white walls and a dark gray carpet. Throw in some red & black furniture and finish it off with some awesome GA pics we have here at work. Fast Forward............ We just sold the GA pics and I cannot find them any where else to replace them for what I would have paid for them, so now I am rethinking the whole scheme. I am now leaning toward painting the ceiling a dark, rich brown color with the white walls and installing an shag carpet with a dark brown & beige shag....I was just thinking we could match furniture & accessories with brown earthy tones for cheaper than the whole specialty room thing? Any one have any suggestions? Thanks!
