Redecorated Sewing Room

Okay, I'm not done.  I may NEVER be done!  I still have a ton to do, but if you remember my PLAID room with old, crappy furniture which was left behind by previous owners, you will appreciate this.  I went to the Christmas Tree Shops and found a cute little bookshelf for $30.  I painted the backing of it the same color as the dresser and sat the whole thing on top of this dresser.

See below?  Notice the lack of plaid walls?   That picture frame on the bottom shelf will go onto a wall eventually.  Also, those cake plates are made using outdoor plastic plates and glass candle sticks glued together with E-6000 glue.  They will be great to pile spools of ribbon on, one of my cake pin cushions and such.
Today is the first day of Spring Break, so I may get some more painting done this week. The walls are half finished and the rest is half primed.  Two coats of paint and I will be done with that.  Then I have a table and chair to paint.  I have to take breaks because my room is in the basement with little venthilation and even with a fan running, it is STINKY!!!   Cute, but stinky!

There you have it for now.  Thought you might enjoy a peek!  Have a great weekend!

I love the way you painted that bookcase! It really pops. Can't wait to see what it looks like with the accessories hung on the wall!!!

Tami, this is looking great. I love the colors you are working with. I'm glad you are getting the vacay break to NYC but I'm sure you are anxious to get back and finish pulling it all together. I did my studio space last year and it was fun to do a space that was just for me. I could be as girly or not as I wanted. A studio or sewing room is a place where you can pull out all of the stops and let your creative freak fly. Enjoy this project. I can tell it is going to be fabulous and I can't wait to see the finished product.
