Beautiful isn't she? I want to give you a tour of how it turned out. I tried to use as many thrift items to redo the room as I could.
I have a few before pictures for you from an older post.
I like the way the fabric is arranged.. (don't look at the mess on the bottom right) sorry about that.. I folded the fabric on magazine boards.. that took several days but it was worth it.
Here is a close up of the folded fabrics in a box I bought for two dollars.
I sorted all my buttons in cheap jars.
Most of the threads and the childs sewing machine was my husband's Aunts. I love them in the cloche's and a plus is they are protected from dust.
These hide my serger thread and elastic. Who would think chicken wire would ever be so sought after?
The little chandelier is a $2.00 item from thrifting.
before: serger area
Hubs cut cork board and painted to a frame I had painted and stained.
Hubs made a cabinet for my threads.. he has been so sweet in helping me get the room perfect.
An old spice rack works well for some trim.
The Paris plaque was a $5 find.
I used paper mache' to put old pattern pieces on canvas.
Second area for sewing is on a cabinet for $25
All the shelves and containers were thrifting items
paint, paint and more paint.
So that is a little tour of a place that makes me very, very happy. I just wish I had more time to spend in my room.
And..lastly my prize position, a $25 chandelier.
Hope you enjoyed my tour of my sewing room.
