One of the best DIY projects to learn is how to paint on concrete. As far as unfinished basement ideas go, painting concrete walls or floors improves the look without sacrificing the intended durability. This is also beneficial for mud rooms, laundry rooms, or any utility rooms that may have concrete walls or floors. You can't use just any old paint, though. Porch paint is made to be durable and stand up to all sorts of weather and other conditions. That means it can be used on concrete and withstand your kids running through the rooms.
