Red room under the stairs

So I *think* I remember reading someplace that one of the kids who used to hang out at the house and was friends with the DeFeo kids that he/she was there when the kids decided to paint that room red, and that they got in trouble for doing so. Has anyone else read that? Also, such a big deal was made over the fact that that room is not in plans for the house. Does a room under the stairs really need to be included or usually included? I think everyone kind of knows that under steps there lies some storage area, especially in a basement? And Booshagirl, if you are out there, I live not too far from you in Michigan :D

Yes, but they never got into trouble for it. Infact
according to another witness/friend big ronnie
let them paint it red (and may have even joined in).
It was a toy storage place basically.

I have a space in my new temporary home under
the stairs. I want to paint it red and call it the red room,
but because the council own it I can't....

Yeah, I believe it was Patrick O'Reilly in this documentary who said Mr DeFeo told them to paint it red...

I knew I came to the right place! I must have misremembered the getting in trouble part. So nothing sorrid, just kids and their dad painting a room. I painted my bathroom red but the space was just WAY too small for red, and has since been repainted, but my husband said WTF, it's like the Amityville Horror room. It could have been pretty in a smaller room. As far as I know, painting a room red does not make it the gate to hell!!
