12 coats of paint, 4 cabinets built, 47 minutes in the swimming pool, 3 birthday parties, 11 cupcakes eaten, and 1 sparkly manicure. That pretty much sums up our busy weekend. We managed to get a lot done in the basement - all the painting is done! Woohoo!! We're finally getting a real feel for the space and its staying true to the neutral, beachy look we envisioned. Though we've spent countless hours planning this space out, there were a few little details we decided to deal with as they came up.
- Laminate: Laminate would be the most economical but all the pre-made countertops I've seen in the big box stores are only counter-depth. We'd have to get something custom.
- Corian or Caesarstone: A solid surface or quartz countertop would be great to have in the laundry room. They'd stand up to moisture and would provide a nice smooth surface for folding clothes
- Natural stone: Granite, marble, limestone - they would all look lovely but probably out of our budget
- DIY: MDF, wood, an old door... we could make the countertop out of any number of materials. We've already got a lengthy To Do list so I'm not sure we want to add this to it as well.
