laundry storage/folding station... If you've ever been to IKEA, you've probably seen the Expedit storage system. It comes in 3 colors and at just 39 it's a pretty good bargain! This will act as the base for the unit. IKEA also sells standalone table tops in a variety of sizes and colors at about 20 each. I opted for white, but they also have a black-brown and a stainless steel option if you want a more of a modern look.
