I have been wanting to write a post about my sewing space for AGES! But my space also hasn’t been finished until now…so NOW I can show you all 🙂
I sew in a little corner of my living/dining room, and if you follow me on Instagram you will have been seeing some lovely pictures as I add to my little area that is well on its way to being finished.
Yes, I have been sewing for about 2.5 years, but I used to sew on my dining room table…there was always fabric and other notions everywhere! Then earlier this year I purchased a 2nd hand Horn Sewing Cabinet from a seller on Gumtree – this was the start of my sewing corner. I then commandeered 3 shelved in a cupboard (for my fabric and notions) in our dining area and started looking for some shelves that I liked enough to go on the wall in my sewing corner, but that also matched the other furnishings in our living and dining areas – I mean I have to look at this area everyday and when we have visitors they will also see them…so they had to be perfect.
About few months ago I saw this post and the hunt for my little house stated. Every few weeks I found some time to visit the op shops in my area searching, and a month ago I finally found my house!
It cost me $8 and it is in perfect condition! I wondered if I should paint my new little house, I was going to paint it white or black…but in the end I decided to leave it in its natural wood colour – mainly I came to this decision as I know I am pretty lazy when it comes to painting, so I knew that I would probably start the paint job but never actually finish it? 😛
Then the search for shelves continued…and last weekend I bit the bullet and bought some, and then convinced hubby (it didn’t take much convincing mind you – he is always very happy to get his tools out, I’m sure in another life he would have loved to have been a tradesman!). Anyway, I convinced hubby to put my selves and my little house on the wall…and I started decorating 🙂
Here is the progress:
And here are the finished shots of my space – I love it 🙂
I hope you have enjoyed your little peek into my little creative space!
