    All 4 walls are done now!!!!Yah

    I have been painting away, got all the walls done, and am adding the pictures to show the room in it's infancy. The room is 12x20. This first picture is looking to the southeast and I will have about an 8 ft square design wall, and I have started a Dear Jane, so those are the pieces that I have attached so far, to try to make the squares blend.

I still have a long wait ahead of me, to get the lights and outlets hooked up, then the carpet and the trimboard, but I know it will happen. I am so excited.

    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.

    Great space, my sewing room is yellow, too. I wanted a room that was light and airy feeling.

    Really coming along nicely. I envy you all the space! My room is only 12 X 13, but I do have a really large closet with shelves.

    Yes, thank you. And to all who have posted comments, and to those who just look. I have always hated moving a desk or other piece of furniture to plug something in. I wanted those 2 switches to control the light fixtures above and also the outlets beside them, so when I shut off the lights, I am also shutting off my iron and sewing machines. He thought I was a little daffy, but I knew what I was using the space for, and that is a safety factor for me.

    This will be one very nice room for you to relax in and do nothing but sew sew sew. I have my basement all to myself, its not finished, but i like it that way, its very warm, with no carpeting on the floor but i can use my chair with the wheels and it makes it that more easy, also my hubs put in flouriscent lighting. I can spread out all over the place.

    I love the color. Very warm. It seems you have great light coming in, which is good. More than the walls, I want your design boards. I just do not have room to put up one that big in my sewing studio. Congratulations on the space. You will really love it when it is all done.

    Seems there are never enough outlets when you need one! I like those high ones as well. My room is a former bedroom so Elec is tight. One day my dad (the former fire chief) is going to walk in here and throw a huge fit if he sees some of my outlets!

    Nice room! I learned long ago that yellow is a perfect color for the sewing room. It seems to offer "sunlight' around the clock, and good vision on the work at hand.
