Gianfranco has done it again, and this time with more flair than ever. The Cherry basement went from drab to fab and is even functional.
The couch has a fresh look with a new slipcover and denim pillows. It is the centerpiece of the new family gathering area and is located where the office was.
A larger desk for Casey Blue's schoolwork is situated to the side of a closet that was enlarged to hold school materials and toys. The toys are out of the way and aren't a distraction during school time.
A new, modular entertainment unit can be stacked in a variety of shapes to suit the needs of the family.
