I think I love fabric even more than I love sewing. Colors just make me happy. Bright, bold, flamboyant colors that just dare me to be grumpy. That's why it made perfect sense to me to pull all my fabric out of their bulky bins and store them out in the open-- on bright blue shelves my honey made me. I found some lovely vintage contact paper at a thrift store and I adhered it to the back of the shelves. A sewing table I found at a yard sale a year ago got a brand new facelift as well. Space is an issue for this gal who loves to craft. In other words, I have WAY TOO MUCH stuff and nowhere to put it! This little sewing nook is actually in a corner of our master bedroom. Good thing my husband's not a light sleeper, right?
Every sewing corner needs it's own lighting. So I threw a skirt over my ugly old lampshade and "dressed" it up a bit. And just like any skirt, it needed a belt to go with it. The great thing about this is that it's temporary-- I can change the look easily (and even wear it myself!)
And that's the grand tour of my new favorite corner.
