part two: the one where i actually finish my sewing room!
for real! :DDDD
well, over the weekend (in my time off from plastering duties), i was working on Actually Finishing Stuff!
yeah, the absolute very last final top coat of paint wasn’t yet dry on the magical storage cupboard doors, before my ocd was organising fabric and wool stash for me, and my brain was *daydreaming* about FutureMe ramming those shelves full of colour co-ordinated FQs…
meanwhile, one of the other painting projects CurrentMe was juggling (i do hate cleaning paintbrushes so i try to do everything all at once), was my new overlocker table.
i needed a small-ish table that’d fit beween radiator and door clearance, and i wanted it to be quite narrow so that it didn’t encroach on my precious floor space. also, it needed to be made from pine so i could paint it, and stain & varnish the top to match everything else.
i don’t imagine i would ever have found the perfect table in a shop… but luckily the guy who made my magical storage cupboard does tables too :)
while i was waiting for other things to dry, i thought i’d do a quick makeover on this crappy old chair that cost me £2.50 in 1996.
(i can’t bear to part with it because when Husband & i bought our first house, and were super poor, this charity shop treasure was the only furniture we owned.)
so today, fiiiiiiiiiiiinally, i have the clean, minimalist sewing room (that’s still also the spare room and the laundry room) that i’ve been dreaming of since… um… october 2007.
of course, i love it so very much exactly as it is right now, that i’ll probably never sew anything ever again :)
