Sew Much More

Sewing/Craft Room

Filed under: sewing/craft room — by michellew @ 2:23 pm

    Our new house has a great laundry room.  The house used to have an apartment on the back, so actually my laundry room is the old kitchen from that apartment.  Well when I saw ALL that storage with the cabinets and room for a small table for my sewing machine, I knew this room was my dream come true.  I always wanted a sewing room to keep all of my fabric/sewing stuff, and not to mention all of my other craft junk.  (I finally did throw away a huge bag of paper (to make paper) before we moved.  Bob’s been trying to get me to throw that thing away for years!)  But I have filled up those cabinets with all kinds of stuff and its great.  (we painted the cabinets a while ago)

So I want to show you how amazingly hideous the walls were (I need to comment that our friends we bought the house from felt the same way about this room), and what they look like now.  A couple of months ago we primed it but just got around to painting it last night.  I love it!  Its this great gold color, can’t remember the paint swatch name at the moment.  I can’t wait to get some shelves, pictures, etc on the walls.  And maybe we can find a cool rug for the floor at ikea.  I love decorating and putting rooms together.  But this room is even more fun because its ALL MINE!  Its at the very back of the house, so I have plans to just spend time back there by myself away from it all.  The morning sun comes in through the windows and its so peaceful.  I don’t care that I have to share my craft space with the laundry room, I’ll take it!

Before, can you say purple tie dye?!:

 I’m sure I’ll be posting more as I decorate and make this room into a fun place to create in.

  2. I LOVE it!!! It looks cool with the turquoise counters, too.

    What a blessing to have your own little corner.

  3. That looks amazing! I’m a little jealous of your sewing/ craft room. Someday I hope to have one of those. Enjoy yours!
