Building a Mad, Mod Basement for Grown Ups and Kids to Share

When Annie and Mark Drahman accepted Jason Cameron's challenge to smash all the rooms they hate in 30 minutes, they decided to tackle their basement and basement bathroom. They completed the basement with the promise that Jason would turn it into a mod family and entertaining space. They failed on the bathroom so it's up to them to finish that room. Jason takes on the challenge by upcycling a vintage bar, installing a cool vinyl floor, unique wall tiles and custom-built room dividers and storage cubbies for the kids. He also uses drapes to create a unique wall treatment and uplighting to give the space a mod, lounge vibe.
