Small sewing room redo snippet!

January 19, 2011
I just had to share this snippet of a preview. I put the first coat of “freshy fresh” (aqua green) on the top of the room tonight. It is still drying as you can kinda see in the pic, lol.

The top was a beige color and the bottom will be painted eventually, just need to get the time.. I only did this ONE wall so far, which was by the far the easiest to get to, but the most trimming/brush work. Phew- I am going to sleep well tonight.

Sewing Room Makeover

January 18, 2011

So a sewing room repaint has been in order since… well, since this dining room became a sewing room 🙂   I have had visions of repainting the walls to a lighter, brighter more inspiring color for awhile.  So I am jumping in!   I had dark wood beams along the ceiling walls and down the center of the room and had painted those a long time ago.  However, I never got around to rolling the main part of the ceiling.  So I rolled it tonight.  It needs one more coat and as much as I would like to call it “good enough”, I am doing it right this time.

So here is the before picture of the room in all its messy glory.  It is way messier then usual here so pardon the piles that arent usually there.

I am going to leave my trim/stairs all the brown wood. But will be painting the top and the bottom 2 separate colors. Here are the before pics (keep in mind it needs tidied, lol)

Here are the colors I picked out.  The top will be this pretty aqua green color called “Freshy Fresh” lol.  Bottom is “Paprika”.  The brown is just in the middle to show the contrast with the trim.

So feel free to follow along as I move onto a new brighter space.   I hope to replace the blue cabinet in the corner too and I would love to paint the embroidery cabinet and put some cool funky fabric in the front openings.
