Getting Some Color

Last night's rain left us with cooler temperatures this morning making laying on the first coat of paint a pleasure.  This seems like a great color combination for several reasons.  One is that the gray paint is nice neutral color that won't distract from any posters/pictures I hang on the walls, it'll also help to hide some of the clay that splatters on the walls, at least the Phoenix, Orangstone will still glare and force me to clean.  I love turquoise so just looking at this floor color will make me happy.   The other part that's cool is that these paints are mistake paints that are ending up being used rather than polluting the environment.  We had the floor paint due to a mistake when getting several cans of paint mixed up at the home improvement store a few years ago, and the gray is a clearance paint because it was wrong for some reason.  I got it for $5.  Even better, I found someone giving away wood stain for free so I might have a chance at getting my exterior trim colors at least.  Another reason I like this paint combination is that it reminds me of my motorcycle.  It's not a bad thing to be thinking about one thing you enjoy while doing another thing you enjoy.
I'm still not certain what I'm going to do for the ceiling, I'd like it to be well insulated, cool looking and inexpensive.  Reusing some product would be awesome.  I'm open to suggestions.

  1. Looks really great! I love turquoise too and it looks perfect with the grey. Happy accidents - gotta love 'em!
    Pondering ceiling ideas...

  2. This is fun watching your studio come together in real-time.

    I like the way you think about plants, you "NEED" edgeworthia & witch hazel.

    Both would look good near your new studio. Looks like the perfect light for them.

  3. Oh yeah, I love happy accidents, remember, I do raku.

    Tara - yes, some plants are just must haves, Witch Hazel has been on my list for a few years and now I think I've got just the right place. Thanks for helping keep my mind on other ways to play in the mud.

  4. boy you are getting the bargains, lovin that angled window shown, very nice light.

  5. Linda- the studio has an angled window on the front and the back plus a skylight. I wanted to be sure to get ample natural light. It looks pretty cool too. The glass should be ready for install on Thursday.
