Good Saturday morning to all my Blogging friends :) Today I thought I would share with you some photos of where I create :) Now, the room was quite a disaster area, and since I wasn't going to be doing any sewing for about a week because of my upcoming Garage sale, I decided to get it all cleaned up before I did, lol :) This room was my daughter, Amber's room, and when she got married last summer, it became my sewing room. It was previously wallpapered in shades of lavender, blue, and white, but when I "took over" the room, I ripped it all done, and re-wallpapered it with this sweet pink and blue floral pattern on the bottom; a coordinating stripe border for the middle and top, and the main body a muted pink. Isn't it fabulous! The blue carpet was staying, so I had to find something that would incorporate it.
This is where I sew...I have 2 sewing machines; the one on the right does the bulk of my sewing, and the one on the left I use to do only ruffles with. The chair is a vintage wicker chair, which I painted pink. The window faces out the front of the house, and I can watch the cars come and go :)
I had this sign custom made for me by a wonderful seller on Ebay, so everyone who enters this room knows that "Shabby Cats and Roses" works in here :)
This is a gorgeous Antique Victorian bed, which I painted a Linen white, and I use it as my "work" table, so to speak. There's no room for an actual table in here, so this works just fine.
This is TEMPORARY shelving that I keep all my fabrics and such on. I have quite a hard time finding particular fabrics...I have to literally dig thru the chaos!
This photo here, I have a vintage cabinet I painted, and hung it up, and I use it to display some of my pretty rose china figurines and some vintage Victorian gift books...below is a sweet little bench, again I painted linen white, with one of my pillows and a cute little kittie doll. Eventually I want to find just the right small size dresser to put here to keep some of my sewing embellishments in.
In this photo you will see a cabinet, which is from Rachel Ashwell's Simply Shabby Chic line of furniture...This is where I keep my finished products, and some projects I still have to finish. The beautiful rose painting is by Cindy Ellis. I found the vintage magazine rack at Goodwill (love that place), and painted it pink :)
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend my friends!!!
