What was I thinking? You know the saying "your eyes are bigger than your stomach," when you order more food than you can possibly eat? I think something like that happened when I got the bright idea to clear out my scrapbook room and redecorate it. I should have known better when I started taking things out of the closet (see my last post for that picture).
Well, it only got worse. In addition to my living room being full of scrap supplies my kitchen table and family room floor are now both buried as well.
The good news is that I was able to fill in all the holes and put a fresh coat of paint on the walls. In the picture below you can see the "before" color which was a sage green and the "after" color which is a pretty cream color with a hint of yellow.
I didn't realize the green was so dark until I started painting the new color. The spots of cream that you see in the picture are where there were nail holes that I filled. Yes, there were a lot.
This is a picture of the room once I was done painting. I was able to leave the big pieces of furniture in the room and paint around them.You can see my desk and my paper stands.
It's a lot of work, but I'm glad I was able to paint. Hopefully I will be able to organize things a little better and have a better workspace when this is all done. I'll keep you updated as things progress.
