My craft room remodel is teaching me patience; something I obviously need to learn. We are three weeks behind schedule, mostly due to challenges with our cabinet installation. I promise to share lots of photos once we finally get them installed. The good news is that our carpet is scheduled to arrive on April 30th and, hopefully, I will be able to use my craft room soon after that if all goes well. Today I thought I would share with you one of the many lessons I learned the hard way.
I originally posted a link to this very helpful post in February, but have since learned a few things that might be helpful if you are choosing a new paint color. Click here to read her entire post.
I followed her advice and now I am the proud owner of tons of gray paint chips and many small bottles of paint samples. Now for where I went wrong; I painted a small swatch of what I thought was the perfect gray on one wall. Big mistake! It looked wonderful, but when we painted the rest of the room, it literally looked like a hideous shade of lilac. I strongly recommend painting as large a swatch as possible on several walls to see how the paint really reflects the lighting. It would have saved tons of time had I done that!
After five trips to Home Depot, we finally got it right and repainted my room. My color of choice was Behr Classic Silver and I totally love it! It is a very neutral gray and works well with our lighting . I can’t say enough good things about Behr paint. It was so easy to work with.
Thank you so much for all your patience! I hope to be able to get back to crafting soon! I can’t wait to share the after photos with all of you.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
