So, I've been working on my new sewing room in fits and starts over the last 4 months. It started out as a storage room while we were working on the rest of the house. It was referred to as "Paint Central" to my chagrin.
Then we moved all the
|Mossy Green was so blotchy|
|Behrs' Iced Celery covered well|
So, I repainted it with a gallon of minty green (Iced Celery, Behr Premium with Mildew resistance Eggshell Enamel) that I found in the miss-matched area at Home Depot. We painted the trim with the same white we're using in the rest of the house (Gypsum, Behr Premium mildew resistance Satin Enamel) and painted the closet bright white (Behr Premium mildew resistance Glossy Enamel). The ceiling is just plain white like most of the ceilings in the house (Ceiling white by Zinser with mildew resistance Flat). **
Then I coerced my hubby to move three of the garage's shelving units into the sewing room to hold all my boxes and boxes of stuff. Unpacking and organizing was the major portion of the work. I've collected quite an eclectic mix of baskets through the years which really helped.

I'm so excited to get back to sewing again.
**You might be wondering about the Mildew Resistance in the paint. Well, for one thing, now we are in Southern Virginia where the humidity is high high high. But more importantly, when we moved in here there were shutters and black-out roller shades on all the windows. After removing all the window coverings to let the sunshine in, we found the walls looked really really gray and a few had orange "dots" on them. Once I started to clean/scrub the walls, I soon realized they were covered with mold and mildew in the nooks and crannies of the textured walls...including the closets, ugh. So, all the walls and ceilings were scrubbed with tri-sodium phosphate, and we decided to paint EVERYTHING with mildew resistant paint for good measure. No surface has gone untouched. None. Mold is nothing to mess around with.
