The Makerista Is Taking over Instagram

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:




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.
