I painted my new sewing room....

Hi everyone!

I know I haven`t blogged a lot this summer.
We have been doing renovations and all our extra time has gone to that.

Well, those renovations are coming close to the end.
We have made two new bedrooms in our basement for the boys.
They are all moved in, and settled.
I am all done my part of those renovations.
My daughter is moved into her new room.
I did not have as much work to do in her room.
We only needed to paint.
With that done, I got to work on the last room.

This is the best room of all, my new sewing room.
This room used to be my daughters room.
It was painted a very pale yellow.
That was the color of the room when we bought the house.
Here is a picture of it before being painted.

Here is the after picture.

I do need new blinds. LOL!!
But, that will come at some point.
I really like the color I chose.
It is a Robin s Egg blue by Para Paints.
I only used 1 gallon to paint the room, and only had about a quarter cup of paint left.
I was really worried that I would not have enough.

Now, I need to come up with a work table.
I do not currently have one to put in here.
I have been searching on Pinterest for ideas.
At least now I can start moving some of my stuff into the room tomorrow.

I am getting really excited now.
I will have my very own sewing room.
