I'm not sure if I ever showed a picture of my sewing space before I started packing it up. Here it is in all it's organized and cluttered glory.
|My sewing space pre-renovation|
This room has never been painted since we moved in more than 12 years ago. It was obvious they used very little paint in here when the house was built. I put painter's tape around the window to paint it and left it there for less than 24 hours hours; however, when I pulled it off, it took some of the sheetrock paper with it. That's how bad it was.
My brother was kind enough to paint the ceiling for me. The old color looks gray next to the nice bright white it is now. It took 3 and a half gallons of paint to cover it. It soaked up the paint like a sponge.
I painted the walls myself. I used the Behr Premium Plus Paint and Primer in one. You can only buy it at Home Depot. After painting almost every room in our house multiple times, we'll only use Behr paint from now on, but this is the first time I've used the paint and primer in one.
It's more expensive, but it's definitely worth the money. It covered the walls with just over 1 gallon of paint. (The unpainted space is where cabinets are going.)
The color is called Wheat Bread. I think it looks pretty good with the white cabinets and wood floor I've picked out (but more about that next time.)
Obviously I've been away far too long. This was an awfully long post just about paint. However, I've got some fabric to give away next time so stay tuned!
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
