    It looks so bright and pretty. I am in procss of doing mine but I keep changing my mind on how to do things. I try and pick up after each use because I get fustrated at the mess then I have to spend a lot of time looking for things and wondering why a can't get through the organizing and enjoy my space. Hopefull it will come soon.

    I LOVE all of the second hand stuff that gets a new life. One of my favorite places to shop.

    That's what I call repurposing for a real purpose! Looks great, too!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Love the chair...your area will grow and grow..I sewed on the kitchen table for a year...now I have a sewing room that use to be dark green and a room full of stuff we never used...I gutted the room painted it yellow added shelves ditched the old computer...and totally loving it...you will find you really enjoy having your own space.

    Great idea recovering an old chair. I was thinking about spending a bunch of money just to get that one from Jo-Ann's with the sewing notions on it...Not anymore. I'll just get an old chair and recover it with a sewing notions fabric I love and maybe some clear vinyl to protect it. Thanks!
