Room Makeover, please pick me!

I entered to win a room makeover from the blog "Vintage Revivals." They are giving away a room makeover valued at $1500.00! This is seriously awesome and exciting AND I WANT TO WIN!

My basement has a severe identity crisis. It's also a little schizophrenic. Somedays it attempts to be a game room, somedays it's a family room, or a movie room, or lately, it's been my nephew's domain. But sadly it is not a place that our family likes to hang out. All of the furniture in the room is leftover stuff that didn't fit anywhere else in our house, the fireplace and counter are covered with sky blue tiles, and the walls are a boring cream/off-white. I can't believe I'm posting pictures of it on the internet because I won't even let people who come to my house go down there. It's a useless space that has a ton of potential, but I don't have the skill or ability to even know where to begin decorating it. I'm the type of person who walks into Lowe's or Home Depot and starts to hyperventilate because I'm so overwhelmed.

I would love to turn this room into a place where my children could invite their friends, or we could have family parties and get togethers. But the way it is now, it is simple an ugly furniture cemetery.

Please "Vintage Revivals," help me. You're my only hope!
