After coming in the door of my new one bedroom apartment, if you go up the spiral staircase to the loft, walk to the back of the closet and push the clothes aside, you will find a two foot wide, four foot high hole that leads to a secret room. Seriously!
The hole was covered with a piece of plywood when I moved in, and the room is 12 x 14 or so, with full height ceilings. The floor is raw plywood, the ceiling open rafters and the walls unfinished drywall. There are two round ducts that run along one wall. Rather than being practical and using it for storage, my significant other and I have decided that we want to use it as our speakeasy! The question is how to decorate it.
I am fine with theme ideas, but what I am really looking for is ideas for how to make it look awesome on a budget. My goal is to spend no more than a couple hundred dollars on all the decorating.
If it matters, I am in San Diego.
