is getting a little exhausted and tired. Since... about November last year I was thinking about what colors/themes I wanted for my bedroom and craft room. I've got a good idea of what I want - just need to claryify my thoughts a little bit more.
The craft room/office. Soft neutral nature grey (might seem too cold) or a cream oatmeal shade on the two longer walls and a bright sky blue on the other windows. (These images are from the B&Q Room Designer and Crown Room Designer websites). The main thing with the craft room colors is that it needs to complment the pink bins and tubs I already have, but I also have bright green, bright blue and soft purples too!
I am planning on painting (and varnishing) the wooden shelving units a nice bright color - possibly pink? or maybe green? I have lots of creative wonderful ideas for storage etc. And a folding craft table for my Mom to use.
My new bedroom will be the middle floor (my old bedroom is now to be my Mom's walk in wardrobe, sewing and reading room). My new room has a gorgeous huge window overlooking the back garden. And is slightly larger than my old room. (I think my Mom just remembers how messy my room used to be). I was dead set on using vibrant bold colors everywhere but I don't want to get sick of them and have to re-paint after a year or so. I was just messing around on the room designer things and picked this green and pink. I like the soft feminine shades.
I get to have today off work (decorating, not crafting) but tomorrow I will be painting the ceilings white. I hope to get at least two ceilings done, if not four. I'm not sure how long painting a ceiling will take as I have never done it before. Yesterday I finished the first undercoat on all the doors (there are about 20 doors) and averaged 15 minutes per side.
Taking today nice and restfully! This weekend will be busy!!! Planning on getting to the house early about 9am and working till we all fall asleep! And the same on Sunday. Hopefully by Monday all the ceilings will be painted! Then it's just the undercoats on the walls (to cover our previous colorful walls) and re-paint those. And the doors still need to have another undercoat then two coats of gloss.
