The Studio Is Painted!
I did it :) All by myself too. On Monday I wiped the walls down with a damp rag, they were covered in dust from when the drywall guys taped the joints. Then I primed all the surfaces, that took all my energy! I scrubbed a few bricks in the windowsill to see if the dirt would come off, the answer? Yes! And ew. SO dirty. 100 years of dirt. Then I took a day off to save on chiropractic bills and went back today.
I played a Sarah Harmer CD also listened to NPR and it went much faster. Also more satisfying to see the color going on and guess what? I LIKE IT!! Actually, I LOVE IT. Which is good because I bought too much and have decided to put it on the walls in my bedroom as well.
Which one did I choose? The less yellow one, Water Sprout. Amanda and her mom came by to see my progress. Her mom, who it turns out is a color guru, said "It has just enough yellow in it to have the benefits of yellow with none of the drawbacks." Yay!
Also I hope it captures a Martha Stewart vibe (yeah, I like her, don't be a hater!) and at the same time the color of municipal trucks or old post offices. It looks great with the wood and the bricks. I've decided to paint the door a burnt orange And I can't wait to see those colors together! This kind of feeling:
