Sewing Room Side of Basement

This is somewhat how my sewing room looks now.

This is somewhat how my sewing room looks now.

Let’s see. Since this shot was taken I have changed a lot of things. For example, pictures now ring the whole perimeter instead of just being on the one wall. I changed the border, too – maybe more about that in a future post – and I covered the shelving units on this side and put my fabric out of sight in the back of said shelves.

I call the walls ‘watermelon walls’. I got the watermelon effect by using 2 colors of paint in one roller pan with one roller. And, yes, they do stay separated, at least enough to see the different colors.

Oh, did I mention that I have 7 sewing machines?

New Home 2004 and Beyond

This is how this half of the basement looked before . . . .

I had ever intention of blogging about creative things when I started this weblog. Instead, I began with family matters. (And it does!) Now I would like to re-focus my attention – it’s either that or start another blog just for creative endeavors, and that is just too ‘messy.’

I’ll go ahead and post this Before shot of my sewing room and then post a second, After, shot in another post.

PS: I should add that this room was ‘puke green’ when we moved in. My husband painted every wall in the house off-white immediately. We wanted to start with a fresh canvas. So this room was originally not off-white is all I’m tryin’ to say!
