$10 Basement Makeover

Not everyone requires the services of an interior designer- Beyond that, not everyone requires more than a crisp $10 bill and a trip to the office supply store to appoint an entire basement with jaw-dropping wall appointments.

A friend of mine emailed me the story of Charlie Kratzer from the Lexington(KY) Herald-Leader. Drawing inspiration from classical literature to the harlequin pattern from a Panera Bread take-out bag, this lawyer-by-day created quite the conversation piece in his Lexington home's basement. The article features a 180 degree visual of the room.

10 bucks in Sharpies, eh?

Recently, Charlie has taken his Sharpie skills to Horse Mania, a public art project. Charlie's entry was based on Alice in Wonderland.

What do you think? Sharpie-art in your future?


  1. "What do you think? Sharpie-art in your future?"...yeah, if I could even close to draw :) Amazing work!

  2. Wow. Love the Horse Mania project! Thanks for sharing with me on Twitter.
