a new sewing room for LT!

12 Sep

sewing room eye candy time!


yes, that is very much a duran duran poster on the door.

i feel like everyone has an ikea expedit at this point. gah, it’s so handy for storing fabric & patterns! don’t plan on it ever leaving the room, though. i’m actually really surprised this thing survived another move, tbh.







it is a *very* small room, so getting the furniture in was a bit of a challenge. i had to forfeit my white serger table for lack of space… not sure if i’m too keen on keeping both machines on one table, but oh well! we all make sacrifices sometimes.

the paint is “refreshing pool” by behr, i had it mixed into glidden paint (NEVER AGAIN.) it is very blue-blue in these photos, but it is a definitely tiffany blue in real life. very pretty, i love it so much!

because i was feeling super crafty yesterday, i swatched out the fabrics i want to use for my fall/winter sewing:
sorry ’bout the giant piece of boning. that piece of leopard print is over 5 yards! DUDE. what should i make with it??? it’s very drapey & flowy. and five yards.

and because i feel so gushy & lovey for my new house…
my kitchen 🙂

the paint is “tropical bloom” by valspar, the cabinets are “vibrant white” and i really really love back to the future.

many of these supplies purchased using these home depot coupons.

    Wow, you have so much space in your sewing room and everything in it is fab! What a great space! Lovely kitchen too! Very cute!

    Mmm, I can’t wait ’til I have room for a full size ironing board. And cutting table. Geez. I’m like a third-rate home sewer.

    I also really hope your poster is laminated or something, else that will be sad 😦 Because right now I’m jealous of said orange kitchen!

      Love the Back to the Future poster in your kitchen! We have a door that we turned into Han Solo in carbonite. Gotta keep things interesting! Your sewing room looks really cute. 🙂
