Video Rental Store Basement Renovation
Occurred on March 9, 2021 / Des Moines, Iowa, USA
Info from Licensor: "To put it mildly, 2020 sucked for our family. My husband and I own a barbershop in which he works full time. Covid shut down the shop for months, and then even after it reopened, business was slow. We didn't get to see family or friends, and our weekly outing to the movie theater was put on hiatus. In October, our weather started to turn and the thought of spending a Midwest winter indoors was soul-sucking. So when my husband came to me with a hair-brained idea to turn an ugly, wood-paneled, non-conforming bedroom in our basement into a man cave resembling a video rental store, I said yes. He needed a place to focus his creative energy, and as our local rental stores met their demise, it gave us a piece of nostalgia to call our own. Everything we needed for this project was free, thrifted, or purchased from our local Habitat for Humanity Restore on a shoestring budget."
