On Saturday I set out to do this job myself since he was injured. I soon realized I am not a painter...at least not by myself. I rely on hubby a lot when it comes to this, probably because he was a house painter in his younger years. He usually masks everything off, does the cut in and paints the lid (ceiling). My job is to roll the walls...simple. Well when left to my own devices it doesn't work well.
About 45 minutes into it, hubby comes limping in and grabs a brush. Obviously I told him not to, but secretly I was glad for the help. I was so exhausted from yelling obscenities at the walls, paint stick, tape, rollers, ect... and I think hubby was tired of hearing it (and I do not blame him). So with his help we knocked it out and I am so excited. I think I want to sleep on the floor in my new beautiful room tonight...lol
My cluttered office area
Time to paint!!!!
Even the girls got into it.
1 primer coat and 2 color coats later.......
Right now this is the only section that is staged and it is my favorite. I spray painted my thread racks Cherry Red...love! I have my super yummy cupcake Scentsy warmer from my girlfriend Jenn. She is a Scentsy consultant and if you haven't seen this warmer yet, you have to check it out! Of course it is filled with cupcake melts. It smells divine!
On a side note, last week hubby came walking in from work and right away went to the kitchen to look for cupcakes...lol I had to explain it was my warmer and he was a little sad. He said the house smelled like fresh made cupcakes and it made him hungry :)
This print is from my sister Lisa in CA, it has moved many places with me and now it has the perfect spot.
Along with the shelving will be a hanging dowel rod for my ribbons. Obviously I am not a Photoshop artist, but I tried..lol
This nook is where I have been storing my tubs of fabric. Here we will build a floating desk top for my laptop with shelving above for all my books, shipping stuff, business cards, ect. The clothing amour (you can barely see) has 3 sections each with it's own door. Soon each one of these sections will not be filled with winter blankets and misc stuff, but an awesome shelving unit for all my fabric!
So there you have it, stage 2 is complete. It will probably be a month or so before I can get to the table and shelving but I do not mind. I am just glad to have happier, brighter colors to inspire me.
