No Pendrell. No Marie. No vintage dress. No quilting. No nothin'.
Why yay? Because I'm moving into a brand spankin' new sewing space!!! I'm sharing it with the washer and dryer, but they have been alloted about 10% of the space in the room. Ha. Take that, Kenmore.
We have been working on it for the past two weekends, and it's almost ready to occupy! I use 'we' loosely here - it's actually been my uncle Kev and stepfather Bobby - thank you guys!!! This room required a complete overhaul - Robins Egg Blue faux wood paneling removal (I know, sad), new insulation (we actually didn't think it was insulated, it was so cold! But, oddly, it was), stud repair, drywall, new flooring, some minor electrical fixes... Phew! So it's been quite the transformation, and well worth the wait!
|Before: washer and dryer hogging too much space.|
|Oh paneling, you were lovely, and I will miss you.|
|Washer and dryer behaving in a more civilized manner.|
|Future home of Sewingville! And carpeting!|
|Aforementioned 10% of alloted laundry space.|
|My new nook... with glowy paint going up.|
My paint color is Cool Morning by Valspar, and it absolutely gllllows in daylight (but is subtle at night). Exactly what I was looking for. I also got a Minwax stain called Special Walnut (fun) for the baseboards and trim and whatnot, but I can't decide whether to stain or to just paint all of it white. The stain matches most of the wood in my house, as well as the door into the shiny new Palace of Sewdom, but I also like the freshness of bright white trim. Thoughts?
What would yall do?
So anyhow, all things sewing/craft related are in bags and boxes and upstairs and downstairs, etc. You know the drill. But, I should be done painting and staining and moving furniture by the end of this week! And [in my dreams] I will have the most fabulously productive sewing weekend!
Love to all!
