The sewing machine is ready to go but the overlocker is still wearing its plastic jacket.
On the wall to the right in the photo above, there used to be huge noticeboard. I decided to use that on another wall for my rulers - seen in the photo below. That saved me hammering in all those nails into the wall again!
I also swapped the big mirror with the bookcase of fat quarters and zips etc. I'm hoping the mirror will help brighten the room up a bit as ths sewing room is at the dark side of the house. The mirror is also helping to cover most of the really dark grey wall. I am sooooooo glad we decided not to do the whole of the big wall with that colour. Wow, it's dark!
(The dark splodge on the right of the photos is something on my camera lens. It appears in every photo but it's especially obvious in these photos.)
And what was the first project I decided to do in my newly decorated and beautifully floored sewing room? A roman blind for the window. I've made so many roman blinds over the years, I can usually run them up fairly quickly so I'm really hoping to get it finished tomorrow.
I am so happy with my new sewing room - it's been worth all the painful shoulders (me from the painting) and knees (Douglas from the laminate flooring).
