The Great Move of 2011.

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Well, it wasn't that great, but the fact that it's over is! I've been living in my new place for a week now, and had the final walk through at the old place just last Thursday. I think it took me the entire weekend to recover from the stress and hard work. Of course the 31st (and my cleaning day) had to be 90 degrees out, and probably 100 degrees in my 3rd floor apartment...that was fun. Even though I was so excited about the new place, I was still sad to leave the place that was my home for a year and a half.


I will miss my old place for so many reasons - the sunsets from my 3rd story window were so beautiful, the high ceilings and vintage character made the place feel special. I won't miss how the place felt like a microwave in the afternoon and the weird vibrations from the laundry room right above my bedroom. Now I have my own office/studio/workroom AND a backyard. So there. 

I'm just getting started working on my new workspace. It's going to be so great to be able to start a sewing project and just leave it out when it's time for dinner instead of packing up and putting everything away to clear the kitchen table. I've got a few decorating projects planned for my new room, but first things first, it needs paint!


Excuse the grainy photo, but I don't think these walls would look any better in focus anyway. It's a decent-sized room, but with only one window it can look a little dark in there. Especially with the dark wall color.
I need something simple and neutral on the walls since I'll be taking product photography in there. I was looking for something in the warm gray family and I've settled on this color:


Whetstone Gray from Martha Stewart. I think it'll look nice next to the white trim and will help make the room look light and bright. It will be a huge improvement from what's on the walls right now. I've got my work cut out for me and lots of other projects on my to-do list (including painting the master bedroom which is currently a very ugly brown). But for now, it's really nice having only one set of house keys on my keyring.
