Basket Case: Laundry Design Board

We didn't end up choosing any of the blue shades that were up for consideration.  A total basket case I am...I agree.  We ultimately decided on Sherwin Williams Blue Hubbard.  A soft moody blue with a hint of green.  It's an old Martha color, but it can be mixed for you.

Here's how it's looking in our space...

The machines are IN and the excitement in beginning to brew!

What we're thinking for the room...

{bamboo area rug}
{hickory sign}
{wall mounted coat rack}
Should arrive today...YAY!
{the original property plans from our neighborhood}
Thanks to our wonderful neighbors!
We plan to frame this and possibly hang it in the mudroom.

We are considering hanging polaroids.  Would look totally cute using clothes pins.
{chicken wire baskets minus the glasses}
{antique door in the process of being refinished}
This is one of those ideas I have that ends up being a big job.

Look what he surprised me with last night!

Now the entire house is in all it's hardwood glory.
Just more work ahead.

If you happen to read this.
You are the hardest working man I've ever met.
I'm the luckiest gal on the planet.
