Well, this is my new space so far. It's not really green! It is turquoise! Getting a picture pointed toward this window was challenging for me, so the lighting is not quite right. I can't promise I won't make changes and additions in the next few weeks as I learn how to work in this room. I have reused the shelves and cabinets from my old room, but because it is more visible from the main living area, I put most of my fabric in plastic tubs for a neater look. (It wouldn't all fit, and since I couldn't find tubs to fit between the narrower shelf above the other tubs, I have some folded fabric there.
I've put my vintage button cards above the window along with my Great-Grandmother's and Grandmother's aprons. The little stool is also a vintage item. The wooden ironing board was handed down to me and was from the 1940's.
I mounted my hardware drawers on the wall to get them off my cabinets. They hold all my embroidery floss.The space left at the end of the cabinets was perfect for this because it didn't interfere with opening the closet doors. The little step stool is a necessity because I am only 5'2".
Here is a view of the room taken from the window side. The opposite side of the room is not finished yet. I have my sewing machine cabinet there, but still need a cutting table and a place for some of my office equipment. Hopefully, that will happen soon!
So, that's my room as it is today! I can't wait to start working in it, but I have a mess now in the rest of the house that I have to clean up. (yuck!)
Very nice!! Your room is very clean, neat and organized and it looks like a very happy place to sew. I hope you can keep up with keeping it neat!!

Linda it's just beautiful! I'm wondering if you have under-shelf lights under those shelves? I have a similar arrangement and found it to be really dark on the counter top. I love the idea of your hardware drawers for your embroidery floss! blessings, marleneReplyDelete

Wow Linda, I love your room...adore what you have done with the buttons! Isn't it funny though, that every single time we fix a room up, when it is all finished, we can't even WALK through other rooms in the house! Somehow everything we took out of the other room to fix it up, got dumped somewhere else in the house so now we have to clean before we can enjoy the room we started on!!! I hope that by now you are thoroughly enjoying your new room and we will be seeing wonderful creations popping out everywhere. Hugs...ReplyDelete
