I have hesitated to share pics of rooms in my house because there seems to be a few things I am waiting to get completed. But after thinking about it I decided is any room ever really finished? There are always things I want to tweak, change or work on, but isn't that the fun part?
When you walk in the door this little sitting area is to the right. That is the pillow I worked on earlier this week. The gallery wall is a work in progress. I am looking for the perfect thing to add in a couple of places. I don't plan a gallery wall as some suggest, I like to just let it happen, adding to it over time.
My sewing machine is next. This was my granny's and I enjoy using it! Above is a chicken wire frame that I made some time ago. I use it to hold pics, pieces of fabric or project ideas.
My desk sits in the middle of the room and this white swivel chair is on rollers so it can go to the sewing machine and back, to the Cricut or where ever I might be working in the room. I personalized it with my Cricut. I am a bit monogram addicted! Behind the desk is a window and a bookcase that holds Bible study materials as well as other things to read.
Opposite the sewing machine and to the right as you walk in is this wall of bookcases. As you can see this provides a major source of storage for the room. My serger sits here, ready to be used. Books for project ideas, magazines and various other craft help sit among items on the shelves. My Cricit, paper and vinyl also take up a large portion of space. Fabric is stored on top. General office supplies are also stored here, the doors hide the not so tidy stuff.
The back of two of the bookcases are lined with wrapping paper. (I first did that here .) This is super cheap, especially if you use a coupon. lol. It adds color and interest to the back of the black bookcases and can easily be changed as desired.
I love to use old utilitarian things related to crafting in this room. The mason jar is filled with wooden spools that still have the thread on them. Another set of spools is just laying in front of that. Oh top is also yet another type of thread spool.
This is my happy place! I love to come here and create, write, study, think or sometimes just watch "Downton Abbey"!
