Project Procrastinator – The AFTER photos

 

Two weeks ago, Thursday, April 29th, I joined The Inspired Room’s Project Procrastinators Party . Melissa gave us a challenge/encouragement to tackle a project we are procrastinating on . I declared that I would finally choose a paint color and paint the spare room that I want to move my office into.

You can see by this post and this post that the room was PINK. I found out PINK is hard to cover! – I painted 2 coats of primer and I could STILL faintly see PINK.

I decided the 2 sample colors I first posted here were too dark for that room. I made a trip back to Lowes and had 2 more lighter colors mixed. I pulled out my brush and put those new samples up on my primed wall – they were WAY too light, almost looked white. So I decided to mix my own color. I took A and mixed it with the light equivalent and came up with a color that I loved!! You can see all of my primer on the wall in this post.

It seemed that every day that I wanted to paint, it rained outside. Have you ever painted a room on a rainy day? Not much light. But I finally managed to get the second coat up! I would like to paint the trim and doors, or better yet replace them.

So here’s my BEFORE {painting}……………………..

and AFTER {painting}

I’m having computer issues, so I couldn’t do much with these pictures, the color looks a little baby blue on my laptop(which doesn’t have good color) but the color is a spa blue/green

I’m so glad to have this step done!! Next I’m going to paint my desk white and get all moved into this new office space! I’ll keep you posted ~Maybe Melissa will motivate us with another party!

    Love it! It did end up looking very similar to the color I used in my laundry room. I ? blue!

    I like the blue, but I also liked all the colors you had sampled, it reminded me of a quilt. You also seem to have nice sunlight in this room. I would put the desk right in front of the window. A white desk will be really pretty.
