Happy end of summer! We typically profile our Project of the week on Monday, but given yesterday was Labor Day, I decided to profile our on-going project today.  If you have been a loyal follower of this blog then you know that a couple of months ago, I set out to build an affordable free-standing studio/work space, in order words a “woman cave”.  There were three main goals; one was affordability, durability and aesthetics.  I wanted a space that was warm and inviting where I would enjoy working and a space that could also double as an extra living space.

Last week you may recall, master carpenter Scott Yoder of Yoder Precision Carpentry (Freehold, NY) had just finished all of the drywall with some assistance from a fellow carpenter.  Here were the steps:

  • Drywall
  • Tape
  • Wait for the tape to dry
  • Sand

All of these steps actually took about two weeks, now that it is all complete we have completed another milestone, the painting!

Because the drywall was brand new, the priming was critical. Three coats of primer were applied. The primer, from Mythic Paint, the world leader in sustainable paints, specializing in paints that are zero toxins, zero odor and zero voc.  As the exclusive brand ambassador for Mythic paint where I also have a signature paint line, I can tell you the richness and smoothness of the paint is superb, not to mention, the pleasantness of knowing you have selected a paint that won’t harm you or your family.

As far as color, I wanted to select a color that was neutral and felt warm, but I did not want to select a taupe or beige.  Instead, I opted for a gray/blue from my signature line with Mythic Paint. The color is called Cathy’s Bremen Gray (Color  141-3).

I love the way it looks so far!

Looking for the perfect paint color for your space, why not try Mythic Paint.
