here) is that I want to get this set up as my craft area. I'm going to be doing all my printmaking down here along with sewing and general crafty and DIY projects. I had been doing my printmaking upstairs in the guest room, but it was always a little inconvenient trying to get my tools rinsed and dried in the upstairs bathroom. I'm also going to be doing some linocuts with oil based inks which could get a little messy. The utility sink right through that door on the left will be great for cleaning up.
post on linoleum flooring a couple of years ago. There are a ton of modern options and I may consider it down the road for the laundry room.
I'm so glad we didn't go with some of the cheaper vinyl flooring options which, I'll admit, was tempting. This one wasn't too terribly expensive (about $2 a square foot), but it looks and feels pretty good.
The basement is already feeling a lot more inviting.
I put up some Ikea shelves yesterday, which I'll paint the same color as the wall.
I've also got to get that mattress covered and looking more like a daybed. Then there are about a dozen other things on my decorating and organizing list.
So I'm off to do some painting. I'll leave you with a shot of what the basement used to look like. It definitely got worse before it got better. Improvements so far: yucky carpet removed, walls painted Behr Popped Corn, new flooring down, window films in place, stairs stenciled, chalkboard wall painted, some furniture and shelving mostly in place.
