My New Sewing Room in Aqua!
So I am all moved into our new rental. I am so thrilled with the home. I do love love it for so many different reasons. One being this sewing room. I have dreamed of having a room of my own to sew in. I painted the room aqua. The landlord does not mind if I paint any of the walls. I just have to paint them back to white when I leave. Yippee!! So let me start you off on the tour of the craft room. Yes that is a little wooden toy fridge. Its child size. I have 3 pieces and this is one. I have another one coming into the room very soon. I will share photos when this happens. On the left all those round storage boxes, nothing is in any of them. Not a thing. I went through all my crafting supplies and donated 3 box full to charity. If I haven't used it in 2 years, I let it go. A few remorse purchases also went with them. I feel better about having all the free space than stuff I was collecting and forcing myself to "use" some how some day. EEkk!
Honestly I was not planning on using this little fridge to store all my goodies. An unfortunate thing happened to the black book shelf I had in the room. It was empty and I had to move it to paint. I moved it forward. Painted the wall. Moved it back and that's when the ENTIRE bookshelf collapsed. Breaking off shards of wood and crushing my dreams of it holding fabric. Fabric is currently being stores in plastic tubs. (YUCK) I don't like that. But for now it will have to do. Now on to see more of the room.
Lots of storage space over here. I am still moving photos around and placing wall art. I need more wall art. Lots of it. Lots of handmade is needed in this room.
I am ready to make or alter a vintage curtain for this window. I have several ideas. I am going to make at least 3 different styles of curtains so when I get bored I can change the room up a bit. I love all the light that sneaks in.
This wall is going to be covered with black framed art. I love the color black against this aqua wall. It really does pop. I am not used to a rug. It's taking some getting used too. Makes for rolling in my chair from desk to sewing machine a bit hard. My desk does not have really anything on it yet. There is a few changes I will prolly make but for the most part, I am really smiling about the whole feel of the room. Did you know hubby thought the room came aqua. No wonder I can sneak Pyrex in and him not notice. However he was counting all my suitcases while moving. He wanted to know if we were going to be doing lots of travel? Oh Silly man. Now you can see what those suitcases were for.
There is plenty of light in this room. I did not even have to turn on the lights to get the photos or use my flash. But you should see how bright these lights are when turned on. WOW. The fan works really good too. Its freezing here in South Florida. Its has been in the 30's and 40's. Add the wind into that and WOW! I certainly love it. We hardly ever get anything like this. I am so getting my fill. I hear others complaining but I am not listening. My smile is just keeping me warm.
