    Iowa State Colors

    I'm (finally) ready to paint my basement project in an Iowa State motif. I sent the Mrs. to True Value yesterday with the history of ISU basketball poster from a year ago, with the hopes of getting a good match. She found a red that I like/works, but I didn't care for the two golds she brought home. The plan is to do all the walls in gold and either sponge paint the red (cardinal) or trim out soffits and go with some stripes. I may also consider an ISU wallpaper border.

    Questions:
    1. Where can I get a good Gold that will look rich without making the room appear dank?

    2. Are there any borders out there with the new I-State logo? I haven't looked alot, but all I see is the old "bird in a blender" stuff.

    Get the Iowa State color pantone code and see if they can type it in the computer there and have it that color.

    Does Home Depot have ISU team colors maybe? I know they have the college series/pro series but I didn't know if they covered ISU.

    If you go to home depot they have the actual colors on their computer. I just did my game room over the summer and it looks pretty sweet. I painted the walls Cardinal with a Gold stripe around the middle all the way around. Then I got the new I State logo on one of the walls too.

    They should be able to use the RGB from that sheet.

    Thanks everyone! The color guide is just what I wanted.

    Kurimski, I would love to see pix of your room.

    It looks like I'll have to wait on the wallpaper border.
