As most basements, ours had accumulated lots of stuff. It was time to start cleaning it up so I could get to the walls to paint.
I picked up samples of 2 possible colors at Home Depot.
It's hard to tell in this picture but the color on the right is a little darker than the left. That's the one I picked out - it's called Stonewash.
It's amazing what a difference it makes - it's so much brighter now! My husband teases me and says you need sunglasses now.
Before I show you the finished (for now) room - I thought I'd show you the tiny space I used to work in:
Not only was this a tiny room - it was cold in the winter and damp when it rained.
Now it's time for the big reveal. I decided that I didn't want to spend a lot of money so the only thing I purchased was the paint. So it is not a beautiful, everything matches room. I'm hoping to chalk paint some of the furniture in the future. What I love about it is that it's big & open. I have room to put up a couple tables and hold class down there.
I'm sure as I use the room, I'll make some changes. But I am so glad to have most of the work done!
Would you like to see my craft room in person? I'm planning to host a World Card Making Day event on Saturday afternoon. Stay tuned for more details!
