As I stand in the door of my freshly redone sewing studio I feel like I'm sewing in a completely new room. In reality it is the same room that I've spent the last two years sewing and creating in, but with new paint and curtains, new shelves and an additional table it seems like an all new studio! I love it!!
|View of my studio from the doorway.|
The curtains are made from a 3 yard remnant I found on Hancock's of Paducah's remnant table. A little over a year ago we were visiting some good friends who live in Paducah and she took me to Hancock's of Paducah just to show me their remnant table. Oh my goodness! I don't know how my friend is able to live so close to such an awesome remnant table (I mean who's ever heard of a 3 yard remnant!?!).
|To the left of the door you'll find my design wall, pressing station and this awesome storage cubby.|
I hate to admit it but, I actually went through my stash and got rid of some fabric that was approaching 40 years old. Mostly knits that I knew I would never do anything with. Though there were some nice 100% cotton pieces that I just couldn't toss away.
|To the right of the door is a U shaped sewing station made from my Great Aunt's kitchen table, a new folding table and the sewing cabinet I received as a High School graduation gift (though my newer machines won't fit in it).|
Here are the before pictures of the same room:
While functional, not nearly as warm and inviting.
|The Computer desk and office area has been moved to a completely different room. |
This is the wall that now hold my design wall.
It amazing what a coat of paint and some curtains can do for a space!!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me!
I hope you're enjoying the new year!
