I really love the color – it’s such a change from the old purple (seen here, in the process of being covered. I’m sure my husband appreciates me showing his painting shorts to the world!)
The chandelier came from Overstock.com (link in my last post) and the curtains I bought at Target. I thought making my own, but the cost for 2 windows was a bit much, so when I found these fabulous border print curtains for $15 a panel I snatched them up! I found the thread holder at a yard sale for $5, and I had one of those jumbo packs of Guttermann from some day after Thanksgiving sale at Joann’s. I love how pretty the thread looks on the wall!
My machines are sharing an extra long desk (Malm from Ikea, very sturdy!) I have a sewing table with my Rocketeer downstairs, waiting to be repainted and added to the room.
I bought a new ironing board. Mine always seem to rust out every year – does anyone else have that problem? My dress form (which, admittedly, is mostly decorative, as it doesn’t adjust down to my bust size) is happily sitting to the side.
I’m still planning to build my project table, but for now I’m ok with my portable table from Joann’s. At least it doesn’t take up much room!
Now the only question is, what to make in my new room?
I’m starting graduate school this summer, so I’m hoping my things being more accessible will make sewing in small bursts possible. It was just too depressing in the attic. But I love my pretty room, and I’m hoping it proves inspiring!
