The Upstairs Sewing Room

"The Upstairs Sewing Room"...sounds like it could be a title of a book or something, right? Well, actually it's just what it says... Yup, that's right, I'm in the planning stages of making the room upstairs (that has help boxes and junk ever since I was BORN) into my very own sewing room!!!

To describe the room...we live in a really old house and the room is actually a "maid's quarters" from like the 40's. So there are a lot of cute little nooks and doors in the strangest places. The ceiling is slanted and pretty short. AND there is a window seat. And of course alot of windows... it's just super cute!

We've always wanted to do something with it, but just never had! So I showed it to two of my friends Monday, and they just got so excited and offered to help me clean, paint, and decorate!!! I'm so lucky to have amazing artsy friends!

I'm going for the whole old fashion look...but since its going to be my crafty sewing room I want to make sure it looks crafty, you know what I mean? So I was thinking maybe having cute crafty, handmade decorations that are frugal (since I can't afford otherwise)... Any ideas?

As for the colors, I was actually thinking about using the pale blue and pale pink in my "blog button" as inspiration! :)

Anyways, I thought I'd let you know the exciting news! I'd love to hear any ideas from y'all! I'll be posting a sketch my friend did of the room, so you can envision it better. And I'll be posting pictures once we empty the room (its a bit too messy right now for you to really be able to tell what it looks like). I'm just SO excited!!!! :)

How exciting! Can't wait to see pictures. I don't have any ideas right now.

(I can't wait for our sewing week...)

Some handy things you'll want to leave room for are several shelves for fabric bolts - and also a bar to hang finished projects would be good too. OH - and a full length mirror.

Sounds SO exciting! And if you base it off that buttons color scheme, I'm sure it will be beautiful! :-)
