I'm finally sharing some pictures of my new studio. It took a long time until I was happy with the paint color. I actually painted it 4 different times! I ended up having a color matched from a dress of my daughter's that I thought was perfect and it was. I used a semi-gloss finish so it would clean up easy and reflect more light. The curtains are temporary but I imagine they will be there for awhile. This picture is what it looks like when you enter. The window faces onto the street.
Looking to the left is my wall-of-fabric :) I like my fabric sorted by color and as you can see it needs some work. Things got a bit out of sort from moving everything around but it is so nice to have it all in one place.
Now, looking to the right, my sewing table and a dresser that holds interfacing and patterns. I really like standing up to sew and working at counter height so I was thrilled when my father found this wonderful work table in the paper for free! Click here to see what it looked like when we got it. A little paint and a pretty skirt and she's set to go. Underneath the sewing table I have bags of felt stored in those giant baggies that you can buy now (love those things!).
Here's looking back towards the door. Click here to see inside the closet where I have lots of little plastic drawers for all the miscellaneous what-nots that crafters have: glues, tools, grommets, little pattern pieces, etc. The "tablecloth" is really just a piece of fabric covered with a layer of clear vinyl. It's a great way to enjoy your fabric and at the same time keep it clean. It also works well for using your vintage tablecloths.
