Finally the re-do of my sewing room is finished. I have wanted to get this room done for years but I was never quite sure what colors or what else I wanted but I have been checking the internet for inspiration and I found some. You'll see some befores and afters as you scroll down but here's a preview and a bit of an explanation. First, I found the blue color on the lower walls quite a while ago in a Pottery Barn catalog and just fell in love with it. It is Buxton Blue by Benjamin Moore. The upper walls are Cottage White by Behr. Then I saw the same blue on Alicia Paulson's studio walls. I love red and was thinking of doing red curtains and when I saw her gingham curtains, from Country Curtains, I knew what I would use. I also love the gingham in PamKittyMorning's sewing room. I know I've seen it elsewhere but darned if I can remember right now.
After. The rug came from a local store, Ocean State Job Lots, and was the mighty sum of $20! All curtains are from Country Curtains. Don't know if you can see outside my windows but it is snowing yet again here in NH!
Closet before. There used to be a lot of space in the left part of the closet but you couldn't get to it.
Closet after. My husband opened up the wall and installed these shelves. The storage containers came from Home Goods plus some vintage tins and hat boxes I have.
My stash has been reduced dramatically and now resides in the two towers in the previous picture. These containers work perfectly. I got them at Target, BTW.
Northwest corner and a peak of the new floor. The table I have had for a while. It's a pub height table that I bought at a consignment store and it is a perfect cutting table.
Southeast corner. Gotta find someplace else to store extra chairs!
East wall-future home of a design wall.
My favorite red shelf moved from another room.
My "quilt" sign that I made like the Noel one at Christmas.
My childhood sewing machine. I even have the carrying case and the original box.
My Dad's tool carrier. I remember him having welding tools in it.
And then there's this. It used to be in my Mom's sewing room and I can't seem to throw it out. Whether it stays is up for grabs. So that's it. It's a nice sunny room that has 3 windows that face south and west. Now let's see if I can keep it this neat. That is probably not going to happen!
