My basement hidey hole is coming along pretty nicely. After a slow start I have finally got most of the major pieces in place. The "L" shaped top is 1 1/2 inches thick, 3/4 inch plywood under 3/4 hardwood flooring left over from the work upstairs.
The shelving was 10 bucks at a yard sale. I've had that for about 4 years now and Im glad it's finally on a wall. The peg board was also 10$ at a different yard sale. I've only been sitting on that for a year or so. Some old white LED christmas lights provide under bench lighting while a fluorescent shop light (came with the house) is for the main illumination
I painted the concrete wall white, using that DryLok product. The manufacture claims it will hold back water up to 10psi. Ill believe that when I see it. Regardless of those claims, the white color brightens it up nicely. I dug out an old 3-disk CD changer for some tunes whilist I work and even managed to hook up an old 13-tv to a cable connection. The dart board on the right side will provide a little fun and the woodstove (not pictured) will keep it pretty comfortable down there. I even dragged over a recliner from my bachelor days into this general area.
All I am really missing is beer fridge. That I am SURE can be arranged.
