The Joy of a Sewing Room Make-Over….
Having a sewing/crafting room all to yourself that is truly just for you, is a real luxury. Sometimes this is achieved by the joint efforts of a husband-wife team. And, sometimes, it must be achieved slowly, over time, in stealth mode…..
Over a period of about 4 years, I slowly overpowered an entire room of our home with all of my sewing/crafting supplies. This was a deliberate process. At first I started out with putting a regular computer desk into our spare bedroom. This desk often did double duty as a sewing table, but it was just too high to use comfortably. So, eventually I “had” to bring in an official sewing desk.
Then, it became difficult for me to prepare meals in my kitchen because my large counter-top was also my fabric cutting area. So, I “needed” to buy a fold-away cutting table and large rotary cutting mat.
Anyway, having a room all to yourself is a real treat. But having one that is decked out with your own personal touches is even better!
So, here are a few pictures of my room AFTER I decided to change it up. This post was made a number of years ago and I have since moved. I no longer have this exclusive space all to myself but, I really enjoyed using it for teaching classes and for creating my own projects as well.
If you like these cabinets, you can get them at Humble Sewing Center. Note: I added the skirt to the white one. You can check out more from Arrow by clicking this link: Arrow
As you can see, I like “cute” looking vintage decor. By the way, if you look at the 1st “Before” photo, there is a dark brown chair with a piece of blue fabric draped over it’s back. That chair was once my Grandmother’s and I have since painted it pink and re-upholstered it to go better with my pistachio green sewing desk. I think she’d like it…
Even though I absolutely love this room, I can understand if the pink and green theme may not be quite your preference. So, I am posting a short video clip of our beloved, Nancy Zieman, giving us an inside peek at her personal sewing room aka “Dream Sewing Studio by Koala.” It is VERY classy and amazing.
Gotta mention: Humble Sewing Center is also a dealership for Koala and they always have some great deals. For more dream room options from Koala, just click this link: Koala
Happy viewing, shopping, sewing, and crafting!
Let’s get sewing!
