Remodeling is not for the faint of heart.
But my newly-sanded-refinished floors are totally DA BOMB, andÂ the studio-makeover-to-date looks awesome. I guess multi-thousands of dollars, a couple of gallons of paint, and hours of labor really can make a difference! 😉
My amazing husband built an awesomeÂ new, L-shaped sewing table just for me. Henceforth, this will be known as the students-off-limits-zone.
Ohhh, and I love the recessed table support he added for my Bernina 710. Now I have such a big work surface that is all the same level! He even drilled out a hole for the knee lift. Yay!!
This closet used to hold my gift wrap, extra dining table leaves, and a few odds and ends for sewing. Now it is the sewing machine garage, Etsy store warehouse, and “less frequently used but still needed fabrics + batting + miscellany” storage area. And yes, I do need all those machines. You have heard me complain about the Hello Kitty machines kids bring to sew camps, right? 😉
Moving my filing cabinet to this location also provided the perfect perch for my press. It is heavy enough that I don’t enjoy lugging it aroundÂ the room, and since there is an electrical outlet behind the cabinet it is now in it’s permanent location. BAM!
Categorized fabric stash. Well, one of them anyway. You will have to provide plenty o’dark chocolate (70% cacao, please) to findout the whereabouts of the remaining goods.
This side of the room is for sewing students. I might get some new chairs, and amÂ contemplating making cute fabric covers. Probably not this summer tho….all good ideas need time to ferment.
Ahhh, and notice the back windows. Another big thrill of my remodel is the window seat cushions are actually now usable as butt-seats, instead of piles-o-crap storage areas.
I can’t believe I started sorting, packing, and moving out of this room over two months ago! Now most of my supplies and stash are moved back in place, the walls have been painted a very light teal, the floors are light and fresh-looking, and all of the mahogany door + floor moulding is installed.Â Looking darn good. So lovely, in fact,Â I might just have a Murphy bed added so I never have to leave.
