Q: I need some advice! I just bought a 1950s home with some fantastic decorating challenges. My upstairs and yard are fine, they're getting such treatments as new paint, new bamboo floors, etc... however my basement is another issue all together. I am eventually planning on relocating my furnace, and water heater, as well as adding a bathroom and extra bedroom into my "pit of dispair/retro-awesome/terrifying-nightmare" basement, but not for a while, and until then i do not want to waste resources replacing carpet!
