With the help of her handy husband Gwen Hefner, of The Makerista, undertook transforming a dingy basement into an impressive man cave for Calling It Home’s Spring 2016 edition of the One Room Challenge.
And this past Tuesday Gwen took over the Metrie Instagram account to talk about the major role trim played in creating visual interest in her spectacular basement. Here’s what happened:
Hi trim lovers, Gwen Hefner here! Follow along as I take over Metrie’s Instagram today, to share with you my Spring One Room Challenge where my husband and I decided to tackle a dingy room in our basement. With no natural light and 7′ ceilings, we knew that adding some character and sophistication was crucial to making it an inviting space. Metrie’s Very Square Collection with the True Craft interior doors were the perfect additions. – @themakerista
The unused space turned media room is the perfect place to relax and watch a movie or catch up on our favorite TV show. Design is in the details, and in this case the interior finishings were a crucial part of those details. Where there was no character, trim and moulding added interest and personality! I had a blast taking over the Metrie’s Instagram! Hope you had as much fun as I did! – @themakerista

To create this unique geometric pattern on the walls, Gwen used simple solid pine screen mould. For the rest of the room, Gwen used Very Square Scene I casing and baseboard. For the interior doors, Gwen chose the Craftsman styling of the True Craft solid door.
A huge thank you to Gwen for walking us through her thought process and for sharing these gorgeous images of her transformative basement renovation. To see more of Gwen’s basement click here.
