One of these things is not like the other

Two of these paint splotches are NOT the final color for my sewing room. The gold-ish blobs were from the original paint I picked. (That's DH's "artwork" in the middle of it.) It was green on my sample card and green in the store. But it was gold/brown on the wall. Grrr. $28 down the drain.

So then I laid paint cards all over the floor and looked at them for weeks in every possible light before making my next decision. Which was also WRONG. Sigh. But it was close enough that after I toned it down with a 1:1 mix with white, it was going on the wall. And so it did, today.

This is what the sewing room looks like tonight.

And this is what will start becoming the stash closet this week, after I unpack the various bins and boxes that have housed my fabric for the past 10 or so months. (That's DH making some final adjustments to the shelving supports.)

The closet will never be this empty again.

    Debbie, that looks great! I am getting excited for you....

  2. Wow! I love the color and your stash closet is going to be so nice.

  3. Lovely color of green! And, is that a bathroom I spied off to the side? If so, you will NEVER have to come out of your sewing room! :)

    BTW, I thought your DH's artwork was fabulous.

    After so many months of waiting, bet you are thrilled your room is nearing completion.

  4. Debbie, love the color for your sewing room. I bet you can't wait to start filling it up. Enjoy, you deserve it.

  5. Well, Debbie -- if anyone deserves her own sewing room , it's you!

  6. Yay for Debbie! The room looks great!
