I'm really lucky that I have a room to do my sewing in. Its basically the spare bedroom and although we have the odd family and friends staying over, most of the time its mine and I can use the space for my sewing things. It was always a bit of a mess as it didn't have much storage and I'm not the tidiest person in the world so as a present for my 40th Jon bought me some new furniture and I decided to re-organise it. There are a few things still to do but its pretty much finished so I thought I'd share some before and after photos.
The book shelf and sewing table were all from IKEA. The glass table top is really lovely and my photos don't do it justice. Its black with a flower and butterfly design all over it. I'm really pleased with it. The only annoying thing about the room is this
A really annoying avocado coloured sink in the space just where I want the sewing table to go. I've managed to persuade Jon that it has to go as nobody has used it for 3 years and its really in the way. Just need to get a plumber round now.
A couple of things I love in my room
Wasn't sure what to do about ribbon storage. This is my home made attempt using an old embroidery hoop.
and this is the super duper 'ribbon ring' that I bought myself
Lots of lovely Cath Kidston birthday pressies and my lovely books all stacked up ready to inspire me!
More photos to follow soon.......
