From Sewing Room to Studio - Part 1

The transformation has begun! I forgot to take pictures before we tore the room apart, but you can still see the dreary color that covered the walls and the trim. It has been this way since we bought the house 5 years ago. The room was sort of a catch all room, and until we knew what it's true purpose was, I didn't want to commit to choosing colors.

And how about the ever so pretty crystal chandelier? Seriously! What does a Cape Cod style home need a chandelier for?

The walls are now Aqua Chiffon blue - receiving a second coat as I type. It is sooooo pretty. The trim will be Belgium Waffle. (I want the job of naming paint colors!) The chandelier will be going to a home more suited to it's sparkliness and a new lighting fixture will go up. I have some new storage waiting in the wings - thanks to my awesome sister-in-law who found a great old dresser for me.

I'm so pumped to have a room that I can actually call a studio to work in!

Good-bye boring walls!

New Beginnings

I have fallen off the blogging wagon & am finally ready to return. I have lots of thoughts and plans running through my head to grow my Etsy shop and revamp my crafty space in 2010. Coming back to my blog as a way to help me stay focused and inspired is part of that plan. I hope to have lots of fun things to share with whoever may be interested in hanging out with me here! I hope there are a few of you who will visit and share your thoughts and ideas with me too.
