The renovation of the craft room is coming along nicely. I have primed the walls, added texture to all of them, and have painted 3 walls. I still need to add texture to the slanted portions (I have a cape cod style home) and paint the remaining walls. I decided to go with a cheery lime green for the walls. The accessories will be burgundy and deep purple. I can't wait for it to be completed so that I can share with all of you. Bright green may seem over the top, but hey, you only live once. On glum days I am hoping the in-your-face-be-happy color will cheer me up. Now many of you may wonder why on earth I would texture my walls. Very simple: hideous, shellacked, poorly installed wood paneling. After 4 layers of primer, the shellack was still bleeding through. Fortunately, it is not bleeding through the paint. I don't have the funds to hire someone to redo the upstairs with sheetrock and such, so the best alternative was texture. The paint is a matte finish, so the texture does not look bad. The walls look generally even, which is a much welcome change from before. I'm thinking I will be done with this project this weekend and then I can FINALLY get to some sewing and crafts. I can't wait, it will be stupendous :). Below is what I wore today. This dress is thrifted and a size 8. It fit a whole lot better when I weighed more. Now at a size 0, it is a wee bit big. Hence the oversized belt. Once the craft room is complete, this will be one dress in the alterations pile. I hope everyone had a lovely 4th.
