    Even if you don't have a budget for new flooring, furniture or whatever, it is still satisfying and rewarding to reorganize. It gives you a breath of fresh air. Enjoy!

    YES YES YES paint... I agree with the yellow, it will make your lil getaway area bright and cheery...

    Floor and furniture can wait... Who knows you may find something good at Goodwill for housing/storing fabric- so peek in there from time to time. I recall a post where a member got a Koala Table for $7 !!!!!

    Looking forward to before and after pics..

    I agree with the advice to paint, and yellow is a great color. I am in the process of redoing what used to be a family room, on the west side of my house, and I painted it yellow. Now, everytime I walk past the door, it just makes me smile, because it is so cheery looking.

    This picture shows the lighter yellow. The room is 12x20, so I painted the south wall a darker yellow, and I am so anxious for the trim board to be put back up, so I can get into the room. I understand your wanting to get it done and organized. Good luck with the remodel, you will love it.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Maybe you can find some mistake paint at your big box store that you like to save on the cost of painting. but for sure paint while you are rearranging.
    Maybe you could make a quilt and exchange it for flooring.

So thanks for helping me make up my mind - I WILL paint! ;D

    And I will also begin squirreling away any leftover grocery money to pay for flooring and future remodels of a grander nature!
    Take a peek into the "oops" paints at Home Depot. If you are lucky you might find something you really like at a much reduced price.

    I would definitely paint. There's nothing like a fresh coat of paint to freshen up any room. Then I'd hang some of my quilts up to give the room some character. It's a lot of work to redo/rearrange a sewing area but the end results are well worth the time and effort. Can't wait to see your pictures.

    Wise words from my 7 year old niece: "Aunt Laura, you must think you can't have too much fabric like a pizza can't have too much cheese." Well said, Gracie!
