My New Space :)

Well finally it is done (almost - a few pieces of trim still need to be added.)  A look back - this is what my space looked like a couple of weeks ago.  I have had my "treasures" boxed up for weeks now waiting for this renovation to begin and was so happy when it finally got started.

So .......here is a tour of my new space, all except the storage closet which needs a little straighteneing up as there is a pile of yard sale treasures in there right now.

Special shelf for my pincushions

View showing peg board




Special location for sewing box my brother made and knitting needles and crochet hooks in wooden vases made by my father. The Tatted cross was made by my mother.
Design Wall - with my Do-si-Do Square Dance quilt.

Shelf space for my Buttons and Books





View from across the room.  The drawer units were made by my father and I just could not bring myself to paint them. There is room for  two friends to sit across from the cutting table with their machines or handsewing to enjoy a time fo sewing and chatting.





Built in shelf beside the fireplace in the Living Room.  We removed this shelf to make room for my Mom's Secretary.  Also added the crown molding.  When the shelf was removed, it left a big bare place on the floor where the carpet was, so our contractor suggested we put the leftover pergo there on either side of the fireplace.  Perfect!




I am sorry about how these pictures are scattered everywhere.  Blogspot is not cooperating with me tonight and I am just too tired to argue with it.

Thanks for stopping by,
Teresa

I'd say that was more than worth waiting for. What a lovely inspiring place to sew!
And, by the way, when you find out how to get those pictures where you want them ... let me know.

I love your sewing room! It is wonderful and how great to have a place for you to display special items. I would love to come over some day to sew! Oh! you live in N. Carolina? and I live in Texas (but am now in Oregon), so I guess it won't work out. Too bad!
