want to temporarily spruce up basement
We are definitely going to finish our basement with top quality materials - when we have enough money together. In the meantime, I'd like to just make it nice enough for the kids to be able to play there. I was thinking of painting the cement walls and putting down cheap carpet squares. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Do I really need to prime the walls before painting if I know we are going to sheetrock within a year (hopefully)?
