Turquoise craft room in progress.

Hello lovelies! I'm writing you from windy as heck New Mexico where it sounds worse inside than it is outside.

And because now that we're homeowners and have to pay for actual gas usage instead of getting an estimate from the apartment people, it's a brisk 63*F in here. Send me slippers, please!

I must remind myself often that Rome wasn't built in a day. I'm so excited about our new casa that I want to redo it all at once! Where are my bags of money? Where is my Scrooge McDuck vault of coins? By the way, did you ever see that episode of Family Guy where Peter fills a vault with coins and goes to dive in like Scrooge McDuck and ends up getting all sorts of messed up? You know because you can't really swim in money.

Anyway, the rule from the husband was "you start and finish each project." Well poopsicles, that's no fun.

So here is my awesome craft room painted a beautiful turquoise (the color is Valspar Turquoise Tint).

Isn't it so pretty? Mind you, I will not be painting our entire house in bright colors like this. I really wanted my craft room to be bold and energetic, so I picked a bright color. My first choice was hot pink but the hubs said no. The next choices were enchanted forest green and tantalizing teal. The green would've required tinted primer. My patience and attention span rival a gnat so that was a no-go. Tantalizing teal was still high up there, but hubs and I agreed it would be better for a smaller space like a bathroom. Turquoise tint won fair and square!

The paint fumes are still dissipating, so I haven't actually put anything in this space. Well, there's some random craft room stuff in there but the majority is sitting my garage. After finding two beefy 'roided roaches in the garage, I want my sweet craft stuff in my craft room NOW!

But there's really no place to put anything just yet. I don't really want the dark brown bookcases I had in my previous craft room. This may actually annoy my wonderful husband but the room would become a dark fortress. I've moved the bookcases in the garage to hold all the lovely leftovers we got when we moved in.

Todd gave me something really truly awesome. This little monstrosity is all mine:

I've been begging and pleading with him to let me paint his dressers. Well,  I still can't touch the older of the two (the one I loathe the most!), but this baby is getting a makeover. It's gonna be purdy...

Okay, that's really all I have to show and tell about... except this gem. This is what happens when you put semi-gloss paint on top of semi-gloss paint in a steamy place. The guest bathroom will be the next on the list for painting. Of course, I still have to scrape paint first. Awesome.

By the by, isn't that pink with the pink tiles just so lovely? Why in the world would they paint that room white?! *cough* sarcasm *coughcough*

Pretty craft room color. That is the color of my daughters(now her little brothers) room.Justin decided to keep it that color to remind him of his sister. I'm so happy for you to have been able to buy this house.
