Sewing Room Remodel- Done!

January 22, 2011
Besides a few things I still want to put on the walls and things, the room is done! I painted, replaced the large computer desk for a small antique vanity table, recovered the vanity table, covered the light switches and trimmed my corkboard with modge podge, move my fabric into the open where it could inspire me, reorganized the notions, fabric, under table items, etc.

It is amazing how much stuff had worked its way into my room over the last year or so.

Here are some before/after pics:

I still want to upcycle an old chalkboard for wall art over the fabric in the corner, replace the rug on the stairs and recover my ironing board.

Sewing Room Makeover

January 18, 2011

So a sewing room repaint has been in order since… well, since this dining room became a sewing room 🙂   I have had visions of repainting the walls to a lighter, brighter more inspiring color for awhile.  So I am jumping in!   I had dark wood beams along the ceiling walls and down the center of the room and had painted those a long time ago.  However, I never got around to rolling the main part of the ceiling.  So I rolled it tonight.  It needs one more coat and as much as I would like to call it “good enough”, I am doing it right this time.

So here is the before picture of the room in all its messy glory.  It is way messier then usual here so pardon the piles that arent usually there.

I am going to leave my trim/stairs all the brown wood. But will be painting the top and the bottom 2 separate colors. Here are the before pics (keep in mind it needs tidied, lol)

Here are the colors I picked out.  The top will be this pretty aqua green color called “Freshy Fresh” lol.  Bottom is “Paprika”.  The brown is just in the middle to show the contrast with the trim.

So feel free to follow along as I move onto a new brighter space.   I hope to replace the blue cabinet in the corner too and I would love to paint the embroidery cabinet and put some cool funky fabric in the front openings.

As promised…

I promised over a month ago to update when I finally finished the revamp of Baby girls room to be more neutral.  Here is the final wall “dots” all done.  I need to order the brown bumper and a new changing pad and cover soon.

 

I am also doing something funky to the closet door that is just to the left of the crib but it isnt done yet, so I will wait for a pic of the whole thing.   I am working on crocheting the baby a blanket that is browns/greens as well.   I think I am almost ready.  I am definately nesting but my body just cant do all the things my mind wants it to at 8 months pregnant, lol.
