Brown or Purple?
You be the judge. We really love this paint color, but everyone seems to have a different take on it. Depending on the lighting and time of day, it looks either brown or purple. Or both! For the record, it was in the brown section of Pittsburg Paint, but it must have some purple undertones.
You’ve see the before the declutter… Not a pretty sight
But we’ve got an after. Well, sort of.
Here’s our process
Strip the room and put down plastico,
Get the rollers and brushes out,
And tape ‘er up. Thanks Dalton!
It’s a really unique color. I can’t remember the name, but I think I have the swatch still. It reminds me of vanilla and chocolate ice cream swirled together in an ice cream cone.
I did all the edging while Joe followed with the roller.
There were a few places that needed patching due to shelves in the wall,
so we had to wait for that to dry before painting over.
But we managed to do it all in half a day’s time.
Two coats did the trick.
I just think this photos is funny. Had to include it, sorry Mikey
We went with a satin finish, which we HIGHLY recommend. After working with many types of paint, this is the happiest medium between eggshell and semigloss.
I’d like to think I’m a good painter, but I admit, Joe has me beat at rolling!
It’s looking so good at this point! Nevermind that there’s clutter in the hallway, let’s just bask in this glorious room with just my sewing machine and some furniture.
Enter Joe’s big screen from the attic office.
But back to the sewing station. Ahhhh.
Things have changed in the past couple weeks and we’re using this room a bunch!
There are a few more cords than I remember.
And I’ve maximized the closet storage 😉
My goal this weekend? Getting this room looking like a functional space again. I need to organize big time! Craft season is upon us! Craft Room vs Music & Movie Studio. We can have it both ways I think. 🙂
What would you do with an extra room in your home?
