You know what the best thing is about paint? It’s not permanent!
When I painted the sewing nook blue, I felt right away that it wasn’t IT. Sure, the actual blue color was pretty, but it didn’t make me feel inspired or craftsy at all. So, back to the drawing board and a couple of months later, I was ready to buy a new gallon of paint!
This is what the room looked opposite of the pink wall….. LOL
While I love pink, I didn’t want this nook to be overwhelming. I chose the most beautiful barely-there-pink I could find, Bridal Bouquet by the paint brand True Value. Two coats and 28 bucks later, I’m simply in LOVE with how the sewing nook turned out! The soft pink brings just the right amount of pretty into the space, without feeling too immature or girly.
The shelves Adrian built are just the BEST!! They are super strong and can easily hold all of my craft supplies – and they even make things look super good! Way to go for a half-day project that costs less than 50 bucks!
Since the floor is super uneven in this room, we’re going to put a little floating table below the window. Eventually.
Paint really is an amazing way to change out the look and feel of a room entirely. But my biggest lesson with this was: good thing paint is cheap and not permanent. When you make a mistake with paint, it’s just so worth it to change it out, instead of trying to ‘grow to love it’ 😉 Like in this case, a pink wall is much better than a blue one!
