Since I can't show you my Hexie project, I thought that I would show you how I have been spending my non-sewing hours. I decided to do a little painting. I have noticed that since I have began quilting a little over a year ago that my taste in decorating has changed. No more tan for us. I have finished the master bathroom and now my sewing space.
I painted it with a light shade of green: Valspar Lily Pond. And then on to decorating...
My dad again came to the rescue and built me some shelves. I spray painted them with Valspar Exotic Sea. Love the color!!! So Nice and Bright!! The shelves make a great spot to store some of my fabric.
I picked up this great rod and the buckets at IKEA. We happened to finally make it to one and I can say it was a huge inspiration of great room and storage ideas. Oh, what to put in them.
I also hung a tension line (also IKEA) across the top of my wall. I added a few of my Aurifil BOM blocks but later will be adding some finished mini quilts. Maybe with the same fabrics.
The pink shelf is actually a chalkboard. Again, my dad cut it out and I went to painting. I used Valspar Chalkboard paint for the black background (which works great) and the pink in Valspar Pink Burst Spray paint. I framed some fun little sewing wall stickers that if I get tired of can quickly be changed.
I wanted a super fun space that I loved to go and create at. Now, I am off to get a weee bit more organized.
You don't need a lot of space to call your own. I don't have a whole room to set up a sewing space, so a wall in the house will have to do. And I know I will enjoy sitting down in my little corner of the house.
