Last fall, Suzan from Simply Vintageous.......by Suzan had a contest promoting My Color inspired by Pantone. We had to pick 3 colours we loved from Pantone's website, My Color Paints, and comment on her blog. Long story short...I WON!!!
I picked three colours I thought would compliment each other since I wanted to use them to redo the furniture in the guest room...but ended up using them on pieces that are going into my new craft room.
Slate Green 16-0713
Whitecap Grey 12-0304
They ran out of quart containers for 2 of my colours, so sent me 4 pints in the Whitecap Gray and Goat.
Finally, I have started working on my new craft room! I showed you where I have been crafting in my last post, and now I have completed some key elements.
An old cupboard that I've been using for craft supplies.
The cupboard has been painted using the Whitecap Grey. I had dollar store doilies for stencils, using Slate Green and the words were stenciled using Goat. It looks awesome in the craft room!
We used an old coffee table someone left on our burn pile to make the craft table. With old wood we made the table tall so it is easier to work on. A shelf was added for storage. But, I didn't like it...
The craft table in it's original spot out in the workshop.
I asked my husband to remove the legs from the coffee table. (can't remember why they were left on)
And I finally got around to painting it, again with Whitecap Gray.
Moved in the house to the rec room, my new craft room
And here it is all together. Can you believe I painted all these in one colour and still have a pint left? The shelf took 3 coats, the cupboard 2 and the table was primed and finished with 2 coats. I love this paint!
I still have to paint and mount the crib rail so I can hang supplies on it. I have so much more to do, and I'll share with you as I complete them.
See the not-quite-done glue gun stand? It has been finished!
Did you see where I used to do my crafting? I think this is so much nicer.
I plan on painting the rocker and making a cushion for it, I want to do it in the 'Goat' colour.
Stay tuned for more projects on this room. It has a sewing area, another worktop table to be finished in the Slate Green and a large dresser for storage I need to refurbish. And, I still have to paint the walls. You'd think I would get that done first...no idea what I was thinking. I was too excited to get working on the furniture.
Do you do things backwards, too? What is your craft area like? Have you tried the paints from Pantone?
