    Sewing Room Make over

    We just finished redoing my sewing room. The walls use to be unpainted knotty pine which was so dark and dreary. They are now a nice calming misty surf which is a blue/green. I love it. I still need to finish decorating the walls as it looks so bare. All of my fabric is still in the closet nice and neat as it was redone several months ago. I finished binding two quilts last evening and enjoyed every minute sitting at the machine. The pictures with the dark wall is before redo and the blue is the after. Hope you like it.

    Gorgeous. i love the calming relazing feel it has. I am jealous of the quilting machine. I can't afford one. all of my money is going into the new studio my husband and i are building as a room addition. My new room will have room to display my antique quilt collection, so my room will be very shabby chic.

    For the cost of paint, you get a wealth of beauty and enjoyment. Blue is my favorite color.

    Oh so nice! I can't wait to get my frame "fully" set up so I can do something bigger than a twin. Enjoy your "new space"!
    Maybe some day it will all be nice and fancy!

    Slowly getting back into the swing of things!

    Love your room. I have the same knotty pine walls in my basement and on a porch. Would love to paint over it but my husband is horrified at the idea. What is it about men and painting over wood? lol

    Huge improvement with the light blue/green walls. Very nice sewing room. Your are so lucky!
    Which make and model is your sewing cabinet. I am in the market for one.
    How do you like it?
    Is it vibration free?

    For years my hubby said no to the paint. Finally I just quit asking and went to Lowes and bought the paint as we were putting down new flooring it was the perfect time. Some of our friends came over for a painting weekend. Later hubby came in and said "I really like this color. Makes the room so light. I think I will make it my man cave". Boy did he get the dirty look!!!! Now almost every day he says "I sure am glad that I wanted to paint the room, It looks so much better". MEN......

    It is a Horn Cabinet I believe. I love it. The front of the cabinet comes up and makes a great top for working on your quilts. I really like the air lift for the machine.
