Painting my new sewing studio!

There is progress in my new new upstairs sewing studio! This week we removed the carpet and started prepping the sub-floor for bamboo. It hasn’t arrived yet, so it was the perfect time to paint!

Last Saturday I showed you the two colors of paint that I was considering for the walls.


Someone asked what the specific colors were, and they came from a paint chip that I picked up at one of the big box home stores a couple weeks ago. However, I can’t tell you which kind of paint is best. I carried this paint chip around in my purse and when I finally bought paint I asked the paint guy at the other big box home store to match the colors. I love how they can match any color. 

So, even though I didn’t buy this particular brand of paint, the two wall colors I was thinking about were Skater’s Pond 72BG (top color) and Palest Morning Blue 70BG (bottom color), both from Glidden. 

I ended up going with the top color on the chip for the walls.

I was so excited to get started, the same night I bought paint I stayed up late painting the baseboards the cool white that’s in the middle of the paint chip above (Crystal Clear White 50BG).

And then in the morning I rounded up my minions to help me paint the walls. They paint like minions too so it’s a good thing I don’t take painting as seriously as I do sewing!

We got the room about half painted. I LOVE the cool blue-gray. It feels so energizing.

I’m crossing my fingers that the bamboo arrives soon. I want this room finished!

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.

  3. Love that paint job and the way it is coloring the yellow paint. Great to have help from the "minions".

  4. Be careful with the bamboo heard it has to sit in the room for at least 3 weeks before installing otherwise it may buckle
