    Get friendly with the Home Repair Places
    1. Buy the "oops" paint
    2. Get the long metal bars with multiple outlets for dh to mount in handy locations
    3. Carpet stores have roll ends (that's how a family member's utility room got 4 different patterns of vinyl floor which meets in the center like the 4 corners area
    4. A damaged kitchen or bath cabinet and or surface...makes a great sewing table or cabinet.

    Absolutely, paint away. Don't fight that idea.

    You bet!! If you are going to go through all the work of re-arranging, etc. you might as well spackle and paint - give it a full-face lift. You'll be glad you did.

    Yes, paint, a wonderful happy color. Get it all done at the same time. Cuz, later you'll wonder why in the world didnt I paint when stuff was in middle of floor. The bug had me last month. Took me all month to re do thread wall, and
    destash, and rearrange. I am a happier sewer now. You will love your new space. Can't wait to see pics.

    Colorful paint will make a better environment for your quilting. Furniture can come later as you are able.

    I agree with everyone else about painting now while you have everything out of the way. As for storage, go to www.freecycle.org to see if there is one in your area. If there is, you can check this site for items people are giving away.

    I would paint. It is hard to find the right time to do it and move things, so you are moving stuff around anyway, paint!

    Painting is a wise choice at this point. I moved first and then wanted to decide what color to paint and lighting after everything was in its new place. Double work. You have to literally start all over! It might take you a day or two longer but it's worth it. Congrats on your new space!

    I would definitely paint it a nice soothing/inspiring color, yellow is a great color. I would put some pretty shelves up with books/plants whatever. I would make sure there were some really neat curtains and a nice rug. I think we deserve a really pretty place when we quilt as we spend so much time there. My opinion only.
