Some Shots of My New Sewing Studio

So I have moved my sewing enclave from the third floor in my house down to a bigger, light filled room on the second floor of the house.

Ahhhhhhhh.  I love it.  I'm still tweeking and fluffing and primping it, but I love it.

Come inside and I will show around a bit.

This corner is the command corner.  My sewing table is here and faces the door and I can look right out the window and see the sky and the clouds outside.

I repainted my daughter's old desk and have made this my "jewelry" center.  If you have read this blog before you know I love jewelry and sometimes I make jewelry.

This cabinet I found last fall at the thrift store and I love it.  It's handmade with a glass front.  I've filled it with some special things.

I used the lids leftover from this project and made a couple of small magnetic note boards.

I love this little handmade spool shelf.  I found that in Arizona when I was visiting my sister.  I gave it a fresh coat of apple green paint and hung it over my jewelry table.

This corner is the entrance and you can see behind the door where I hung some vintage shoe organizers made from lovely vintage fabrics.

Remember the fabulous Rit Dye display piece that I found at The World's Longest Yard Sale last year?  I finally figured how to display it so that you can access both sides.  The back of it has cubbies for storing the Rit dye.

Well, I mounted it on hinges and now I can fill it with all my vintage Rit Dyes!!

How fabulous it that!!

I'm working on one more project for the wall, another hook rack.  I want more space to hang up purses that I've been working on.  It's going to be a project with old yardsticks.

The cutting table made from cubbies has worked out great :->

I've had a lot of inquires about the cubbies, they came from TARGET.

This spot is a work in progress.  I really want a chaise to relax on when I read and watch TV.  So until I find the perfect piece, I will chill out here. 

Now I have to run and get ready for a hurricane :-<

  8. Oh!My!Gosh! All your hard work has paid off and it turned out just perfect in every way! I am seriously thinking about retiring the old kitchen table in my art room and replacing it with those cubies. I love all that function. Now I just need to figure out if I could use it as the “girls’ table” for holiday meals.

  9. By the time you read this, I will be halfway across the country in my quest to move into and live in your studio — I love it and really want to see every little detail. What an awesome job you’ve done! You must be so inspired every time you walk in there.
    I also can’t help but covet that stack of vintage Christmas tablecloths. I’ll stop on the way and pick up an empty suitase…

  10. I can’t tell you how much I love every square inch of this room. (in particular the Ray Charles peach!) Don’t know if your spool shelf is old – either Country Living or the now-defunct Country Home had a feature about vintage spool furniture one time and how valuable it’s become. Made me love my $1 spool table even more.
