The cutting, sanding, painting, shelf and sewing table installation into the “used-to-be-closet” is just about complete. I used paint I already had on the walls and ceiling to prepare the space. (More on demolition here).
Loose junk is hidden away in a vintage oak slat picnic basket (collecting these is a guilty habit). A variety of mason jars hold buttons. Fabrics are kept in see-through baskets (Garden Ridge). The thread rack (Wal-Mart) and piece of scrap peg board for my sewing tools were spray painted to match.
A dowel was added to each end of the small shelf to hold ribbons.
One of my many March birthday surprises from my husband was a new Ott task light. Love. It. Another husband surprise was two vintage chairs – one for the sewing table and the other at my desk. Both need new seat cushions — my next project. 🙂
My ABSOLUTE FAV thing is how George was able to create a matching “u-shaped” table top to fit around my vintage sewing table. It adds extra workspace. It’s really hard to tell where each table begins and ends in the photo.
It’s still a work in progress. I need to organize and gather up the rest of my sewing supplies and go through/weed out fabrics. George needs to complete the wiring. But I am HAPPY. HAPPY. HAPPY.
I can’t wait to show off the rest of my new Dream Space.
Have a good week! – – Joanne
