i promised myself at the beginning of the year that before i opened the shop back up, i would get my sewing studio back under control. i am not good at being organized or cleaning as i go. because, really, who has time for that?
welcome to my happy place! this is as you walk into the door of our daylight basement and look to the left.
but before we continue on, i must show you the horror show it was when we first looked at our house. prepare yourselves.
hello 70's, it's
nice to see your poo brown trim + whiskey stained carpet + dust infested drapes. sometimes i like to just look at these before shots to remind myself of where it all began and how far this room has come.
ok, on with the tour. the infamous ikea shelf sitting on top of the pink dresser is one of my main storage spaces. it's filled with vintage fabrics, leather, lace + various bits of craftiness that i just can't seem to part with.
now, looking to the opposite side of the room from the little desk is my sewing area. the hubby custom built me that ginormous cutting table. i'd rather have a man who can build me things than a dozen roses any day of the week.
my sewing corner. also known as my therapy corner.
the big beast, Shirley Jane, is new to the sewing room. she fits in quite nicely.
opposite of my sewing corner is the fireplace. that we've never used. for shame. i know.
and just for giggles, let's look at another before and after shot. can i get a hallelujah for white paint?
and that my friends is the end of the tour. thanks for sticking with me! i hope you walk away inspired to create a space just for you, wherever that may be.
