Well, almost done. Today was the first day I ever picked up a roller and I must say I'm pretty happy with my craft room so far. For anyone that has seen or heard me b*tch about my craft room they'd know that the 'wonderful' people that lived here before were hockey fans (a sport I abhore...hey, if you're a basketball player you'd understand why). They 'tastfully', right, took red and blue paint and had cheap looking hand painted Go Habs Go! He Shoots He Scores, I love Hockey *vomit* in red and blue all over the room. Do you know how hard it is to prime over 'custom' jobs, oye! Anyway, the offensive words are getting closer to white but I've had to resand a couple of places that the custom jobs paint was a bit thicker and after a couple coats of primer I could see it raised. Depending on how I feel tomorrow I may just head to Home Depot and pick up the paint I picked out Shortgrass Prairie by Behr.

While I wait for the primary coat of primer to dry and the spots I ended up sanding and in one case patching to dry again I'll be taking advantage of the gorgeous weather and putting out our Christmas lights. As for stitching it's been kind of on the backburner while I prepare the glorious room dedicated to crafting ;) It had to be done some time and the three day weekend seemed like an excellent opportunity :)

Glad to hear the room is primed :) Definitely glad the Go Habs is gone - I mean what could be worse ? Go Senators maybe... LOL j/k :)

Did you get your lights up ? I was going to do that now, but its already dark and it's not quite cold enough for that true Christmas light effect that you get with hands frozen solid, ears cold, etc. ;)

enjoy the rest of your weekend !

That's awesome that you've finally started and I bet it will feel some good knowing that you did it all :o) I can't wait to see it!

I hope you weren't out today putting up lights! It was coooold!

I bet the room looks way better with just primer...the paint will be a bonus.

I like hockey but I can't imagine why anyone would do that to a room!

Your craftroom has walls?!!
Mine has wall to wall furniture. :(
At least we have one, right?
I hope you put up pictures.

Good for you getting your room done. Everyone should have a nice craft room. I've got one, but unfortunately I can't paint it because it's a loft and shares a wall with our living room downstairs... there's no where to cut off the paint that it won't be seen from downstairs...

Hopefully next year we're going to put a wall up to close it in and then I can finally decorate it the way I want.
