    Craft/Sewing Room - Update #6 - A Baby and Paint

    There's been a haitus in my posting due to a lack or progress. There was a whole week of drywall taping, mudding and sanding cycles, which really didn't warrent any photos. My contactor's wife had a baby girl, and he was off for a week.

    This week he came on Thursday and Friday and had primed the room and put on the first coat of paint (Benjamin Moore "Delaware Putty") as you can see in the photos below. I'm hoping for finish carpentry and cabinets next week.

    #6 in the building of my sewing room - posts 1-5 are linked below.

    It would be stressful, were it not for the fact that it is only one room, and it is in my basement. This means that the mess is confined to one place. If I was doing a reno on any other part of my house, say a kitchen or a bathroom, I would have been pulling my hair out by now. The only thing that is bothersome is the drywall dust in the basement, but this is to be expected. Once it is complete I will be washing down everything with a damp cloth to get rid of it. I was able to write my name in dust on top of the washing machine last night ("wash me").

    It will be really fun now to see your progress with cabinets and shelves. Soon you will be organizing and sewing away! Thanks for the progress pics.

    I am so envious. You will have a wonderful room. We are full time RVer's and also a quilter. My best friend and I sew in a storage building where we put all of our stash. A quilter has to do what a quilter has to do. My husband loves it bc I am out of the motorhome and gone all day. Enjoy your room, looking good.

    Are you excited or frustrated? It's been a few months, but maybe enough is happening to keep you excited. I paid the deposit for my quilting place last week. I'm building a double garage. I will have half of it (6m x 3m) plus DH has suggested I use a couple of meters in front of my car as I only have a small car. It will be walled off. I'm hoping this extra space will fit my quilting frame.
    I keep a look out for your update. Can't wait to see it finished.

    Love the colour. In fact it is the one that that I have in the downstairs hall, the kitchen and the small powder room. I have never tired of this colour. It is surprising how it can look beige, or yellowish or even have a tinge of green depending on the light. In my sewing room I have Benny Moore's Abingdon Putty and I find it restful as well. Love your room.

    I just looked at all the picturesof your progress. You are a great documenter and will be neat to look back over the years and see what once was! It is getting closer and I am almost as anxious as you are to see it all completed. What fun and thanks for sharing this with us.
