The Greco family has been living with a time warp of a basement that's a 1950s flashback. They want to bring it up-to-date by turning it into a contemporary entertainment area with a craft corner. Designer Lisa Abeln ditches the shuffleboard court floor tile and pine paneling for porcelain tile and a unique faux finish.
