There has been progress on the studio!
The Metrie shiplap has been installed, and I got to work right away on filling all the nail gun holes with wood filler. (As you can see above the pink splotches!) After the putty dried, I went over the spots with my mouse sander to get it as smooth as possible.
Once I was happy with it, I painted the entire interior in Benjamin Moore’s Simply White (OC-117) after deliberating between this and Chantilly Lace or, Cloud White. And before you roll your eyes at the concept of choosing between whites – companies make hundreds upon hundreds of white options because they are.all. different. I caught some side eye on social media for debating between three whites. Guys. They are actually different. But to some, it may not matter. But to me if does. So I spend time making sure these choices are right. And I can now confirm, it was the right choice. I love the colour.
I was on the hunt for some great lighting in here and fell for the idea of lanterns. But the ones I loved were ridiculously expensive – until I found these online at Lowes. (They aren’t available in-store) You can also find this via a different brand name on Wayfair.ca and for my US friends on Wayfair.com. At first I thought I was going to paint them white, then I thought I’d go with black -but once they were hung the vintage / gold look started to grow on me so I’m leaving it for now, to see how it goes.
That’s it for now, I’ll show you the flooring debates next! xo
