My sewing stuff is all crammed in a small room right now, so while I wait for my bamboo flooring to arrive, I decided to test out some paint colors for my big upstairs studio. These are two very pale shades of blue-gray.
You can all guess that I would MUCH rather sew than decorate or remodel, but do love a good episode of Fixer-Upper. And I love that paint color that Joanna uses on almost all of her interior walls, so that's the look I'm trying for.
The yellow paint that is in the room right now simply has to go. I'm planning white baseboards and trim with dark wood bamboo floors.
So which cool pale blue-gray do you like better? The lighter shade or the darker?
My 11 year old daughter helped me paint big samples of each color on every wall to aid in choosing. I'm leaning towards the darker one, I think.
And I did get some sewing done in my temporary sewing space... These lovely Christmas Kitsch fabrics from Anna Griffin will be the star of a fun project and a giveaway next week. Make sure you visit my giveaway page on Tuesday to enter (the giveaway right now is for a sweet gift certificate from Laminates.etsy,com).
