I could write an entire book about painting my room lol ;) so it's a bit difficult to fit it all in one post. First, you may remember, I had a TERRIBLE problem choosing the colour/s... When this beautiful moment finally arrived, after careful calculations of the coverage area required and with a winged heart I rushed to a DIY establishment to buy 2 pots of "mixed to order" paints. One colour, off white with a hint of creamy orange and the other peachy orange but with a delicate, shabby chic tone. Oh, how excited was I !!!!
After the first layer of each colour I quickly realised that a) the mixed colour had NOTHING to do with the colours from the tester pots and b) I forgot to calculate a million layers I needed for the paint to fully cover the previous darker colour!!!!! And so I ended up buying more paint...
My lack of patience resulted in additional pots being acquired in a different DIY establishment, and you know, different shop, different mixing staff = different colour results!!!! And what goes without saying, this resulted in additional layers needed to cover the previous layers... Do you remember the famous wisdom words from Shrek? Craft rooms are like ogres. Ogres are like onions. Onions have layers, ogres have layers.
Craft rooms have layers...
And don't even get me started on doing the edges!
The new worktop enjoys unlimited (almost) amount of space and it looks super tidy now! That's because most of the stuff is still in bags and boxes and it will take me a while to rediscover my stash lol.
And here's another gem of mine, given a new life with a coat of spray paint. I bought it for almost next to nothing in a second hand shop, and now it stores my little brads ;)
I hope you've enjoyed this little tale of mine in a true estate agent's style lol ;). Beware! This craft room is not for sale though!
