Craft Room Is Ready To Paint!!

My craft room is all ready to paint!! I am so excited. My Daughter and oldest Grandson came over Saturday and we got it all ready. Everything is moved out, except 2 heavy file cabinets and a credenza that would take 10 men and a boy to move, and it's all covered in plastic, the windows are covered in newspaper, and the blades are off the ceiling fan and the rest of it is covered too. I talked to my neighbor and he is hoping to spray it Wednesday. He is going to do the whole room white, which will be the primer coat for the walls, and the trim is going to stay white so that will save us a ton of work trimming. We still need to take the doorknobs off and I have to cover the doorway into the kitchen in plastic so the fumes and paint in the air don't get to me, ( I am on oxygen 24/7 ) but other than that it's all ready!! My 2 oldest Grandsons have Regional and then State wrestling tournaments the next 2 weekends so my daughter won't be able to get here, but she said she will try to come one day during the week and at least get the ceiling done. I know I won't be able to take the fumes while he is spraying but if I do ok while my daughter is painting, I am going to try to paint the walls on my own. We'll have to see though. It is getting closer though!! Did I say I am excited!!

It's hard to believe we went from this (view from the kitchen doorway);

To This (same view from kitchen doorway);

And this ( view back to the kitchen doorway);

Did I say I was excited!! ( Edited to add; I think I set the date on my camera )


  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog! Oh how exciting!!!! Your own craft room!!!!! Can't wait to see how it ends up!

  2. I am so excited for you! I have been following your blog when you started packing up. I am interested to know how the spray thing works out. I always ususally paint by brush or roller and I know spraying would be so much faster! But knowing me, I would probably end of spraying myself somehow. Can't wait to see the pictures! Thanks for sharing your talents.
