So this past Saturday night, hubby and I went on a "shopping trip" to the home improvement store for the items we will need to tackle the basement project. Yes, that is how a 25 year old married couple spends Saturday nights... and I wouldn't have it any other way.
We didn't pull the trigger on any purchases yet, we just gathered information and prices on the products and supplies we'd need. Did I mention we are planners? I will spare you that mind numbingly boring breakdown and just say we will be coming in under budget - YAY!
The shelving and organizational system for the laundry area will be coming from IKEA - their Antonius line to be exact - because it offers the flexibility we need for the small space (fold away wall mounted drying rack) and a very customizeable layout for shelving (remember the under the stairs issue?).
In any case, I need to pick the paint color for the wall of the laundry area. There is some mechanical (venting, cords, etc.) yuckiness that I want to hide by way of a curtain. The fabric for the curtain is already determined - I snagged a bolt of delightful apolstry grade fabric at a yard sale last summer so I use it whenever the need presents itself! Here are your contestants:
So... what do ya think? The minty green and light lilac are totally out of left field, I know - but as a native Philadelphian, I've got a soft spot for the underdog.
