My sewing room was taking on a life of it's own. Despite trying to use up my stash I felt like was becoming a hoarder.
There was crib in the room too, and it was a nightmare cleaning up making sure there were no pins on the floor.
When it wasn't being used as a nursery, it was truly a messy place. Time for a complete make over!
The crib got moved to the Treehouse (guest cottage) and a single bed put in it's place. I made some red plaid drapes, headboard and bedskirt. Trimmed a side table with red plaid inserts and bought new lamp.
I put some funky Canadiana folk art object in the window. Our whole cottage has the lodge look, so this room fits in well with the rest of the decor.
Then I installed a long drapery rod and hung black drapes to hide the unsightly shelves holding the bins of fabric, notions, patterns and book. But I can pull them back and leave them open when I'm sewing the room.
I have a card table with a large cutting board that I can set up along with an ironing board when working on a project.
But if the bed has to be used for an overnight guest, it can all be easily put away and become a cozy room!
Now to find the time for serious sewing!
