Great sewing room!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Windylou, I like your style !!!! I do what you have done. I use what I have and make it work for me. I love country clutter or whatever you want to call it. I may send in pictures of my sewing room now.
Looks great and you should be able to get lots done.
This life is the only one you get - enjoy it before you lose it.
Love your sewing room. That chair -- did you cover it yourself? Love the fabric. I have a chair like that that needs covering but afraid to tackle it.
Thanks for all the nice compliments! I do use the suitcases for storage. I had a lot of fun collecting all the parts. It's funny that star quilt was at a thrift shop - I picked it up for $10 because someone had gone and sewn (badly) some blue fabric to make it into a quilt top. The blue fabric clashed w/ the nice vintage colors, so people kept passing it over. I brought it home and cut all the offending blue off! Now that I've been paying more attention to quilt patterns, I realize what an amazing piece of work it is. I think I might have to get it off the wall, or at least do it better service than push pins!
I do love a good bargain! My husband doesn't always see where I am going with things but I get so many ideas in my head, I can see just what I want the end result to look like. My frustration comes when I can't get the "right" finished product. i.e. The cubbies were supposed to cover the star quilt wall, but we couldn't get them fastened properly for their weight (another free CL find that I painted/mod podged), so we had to use the window ledge.
I'm sure I will change things up some, but it works for now.
Somebody loves all things "vintage." Your room is so neat, I bet you just love being there and yes a window does help.
What a great room, I love all your cubbies, and that chair is to die for! Great job!
Quilting makes me happy!..
What a great room. I love your painted desk and your chair. It's perfect together. The red table reminds me of my childhood. Nice work. Enjoy your room.
I like your room. It looks real and homey & comfy. Great quilt too!
