Busy, busy, busy

I have been quite busy, with many different things. Mostly home improvement type business. Finishing up old projects and starting up some new ones. Right now I will just wrap up the details of my Craft room...

Here is the room looking into it from the door. It is not a very big room, but gives me enough space to store, stash and knit. What more could I want. The paint colors are both Sherwin Williams colors. The blue on top is called Raindrop and the bottom green is Shagreen. The color combo was recommended on SW's web site when choosing Raindrop Shagreen was recommended as an accent. Well, I switched it with some courage given to me by everyone's vote!
The curtains are self designed :oP K and I picked out the fabric together before the paint was chosen, but we knew we had to include the dark blue which is in the big chair and introduce other colors as well. With a simple seam at the top and bottom and some Umbra 1 inch clip drapery rings to hang it from the clearance curtain rod we found at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Here is a shot of the other side of the room.
And... the finishing touch. A last minute and perfect match! We found this at Lowes!
Thanks for looking. More later including knitting and our new home project details!
