Paint Colors

It's been a bit since I have posted so thought I would show you the paint colors we picked out for the Craft Room. We have been kind of at a standstill the last couple of weeks because my 5 grandkids have been keeping my daughter very busy with their sports and school in general. Hopefully she can help me more this weekend. We do have the room almost all cleaned out now though. We just need to get some help with the heavier boxes and furniture. My neighbor said he would primer/paint the whole room with his sprayer since our first coat in the room is going to be white anyways. The trim is going to stay white so that will save us a ton of time trimming. Plus he said he would spray all the shelves too!! I am really getting more excited the closer we get. So here are my colors!!

They look a lot darker than they really are here. I think because I scanned them in. They are actually more pastelly. (is that a word?) The ceiling is going to be blue (sky) and as you walk in the room from the kitchen the left wall will be purple (flowers?), then yellow (sun), green (grass) & peach as you go around the room. My little granddaughter insisted I have purple and I like peach so that's what we ended up with. So what do you think!! I want this to be a FUN room, but didn't want it to look like the inside of a circus tent either so I didn't want any bright or primary colors. My daughter actually suggested doing all the different colors and I figure it is only paint and we can paint over it if I don't like it. Besides, I can blame her if it turns out bad...lol. I want whoever owns this house after me to walk in this room and go "What the ???? was she thinking???"...lol. I actually think it will be fine with the white trim, white shelves and hardware to break it all up, plus my craft tables and jetmax cubes are white. Once the shelves do go up and I get done filling them with all my jun ...er... "stuff", I don't think you will be able to see all that much of the wall colors anyway. The white should break it up a lot. My daughter wants to paint clouds on the ceiling too but I'm not too sure about that. We'll see!! Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!


  1. I agree with your Granddaughter...You must have purple! LOL I think this will be a fun and inspiring room for you to create in. Keep us posted!

  2. I just hoped on over to your blog from Cricut Rookie Challenges. I had to show my husband that there is actually someone here in Colorado with more craft stuff than me! I'll be following the progress of your room...nice colors. We build a room on for my craft room/studio. I can't be as colorful as it also serves as a photo studio and the colors would mess up the white balance, but I sure would love to get colorful. Good luck with the room.
