Ugly Duckling

Did you all have that awkward adolescent stage? You know, the one that involved white blobs of pimple cream on your blemishes? Well, I think my craft room is going through that acne scene right now.

I'm finally getting around to painting all that orange pine, but it's taking a lot of prep first. All the knots have to be primed with an oil based sealer, or they will bleed right through the finish coat. After hitting the worst spots, my poor room looks like a gangly teenager. It's definitely looking worse before it looks better. But I have confidence my ugly duckling will be a little swan one day soon.


  1. I love your craft room! I just think it's awesome that you HAVE a craft room! How nice! Can't wait to see the outcome. I always love how you decorate your places.

  2. Thanks, Anna. I'm thankful to have the space for a dedicated sewing/craft room, too. It's really too small to be anything else, so it kind of works out!
