Our craft room is probably 10' x 10' or something like that. It is stuffed full of books, sewing machines, crafting supplies, and my computer desk. For that reason, and the fact I couldn't decide on a color, it has remained unpainted for the 5.75 years we've been in our house. But the time has come to take the plunge. The paint is purchased - a lovely light sage green - and we started clearing out the room. Here's what we took out -
These pictures are of one side of our great room. In the last picture, you can see we had to put some things in front of the coffee table, and to the right of the couch. To put this in perspective, here's what we cleaned out:
Most of the painter's tape is up (still have to do the baseboards), and nearly all of the holes on the two walls we'll paint first have been spackled and sanded. My plan is to sand the rest of the spots, then prime them, and hopefully start painting. Since I'm writing this in the wee hours of Saturday morning, it remains to be seen whether my plan worked for Saturday, or had to be put off until Monday.
