sewing room progress

I've been slowly pecking along on my sewing room re-do over the past month, and I am happy to say that it is almost done now.  Yay!  I finished painting the walls last weekend.  The color is Pinedale Shores by Behr, and I love it like crazy.


I also sewed some new curtains for the closet doorways, recovered a stool, painted a spool rack, and refinished a mirror.  The mirror was originally boring brown, so I painted it black and then glued strips from a vintage tape measure around the edge to dress it up a little.  It's nothing fancy, but I think it adds a fun little touch to the sewing theme of my room.


Now I just need to sew a valance for the window and hang a few more things on the walls and then my happy little sewing room will be complete.

So cute! What a great sewing space. I have a room that now houses boxes that will someday be a sewing room, and it is very inspiring to see other people's lovely sewing rooms.

Your room is beautiful. So tranquil, I am afraid my is quite messy, no matter how many times I organise. After seeing yours I think a lick of paint and putting things back carefully. May do the trick. Not sure how long that would last thou.

I don't have a special room I could devote just to sewing, alas--the configuration of my home and attendant costs prohibit that. But I love the way you are decorating your special space--it's unique, but tasteful! Thanks for sharing the photos with all of us.

It looks wonderful! You are so creative to make the sewing themed frame for the mirror, I love it!
