My Sewing Spot

 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.

  3. I think you achieved your goal...the space looks great. I love the green and I'm especially fond of the pink frames with sewing themed decals! Thanks for sharing....I might be inspired to clean up my sewing room a bit now...then again, I may just rest and wait until the guilt passes!

  4. I love your sewing space and it is full of great ideas. The buckets are cute and would be great for dropping scraps in to be sorted later. The blackboard will be useful for reminders of things you are short of. The colours go together so well. Great work Amy. Any chance you can come and create a sewing space for me in my home?

  7. I love your space! Your first paragraph really grabbed me. I am going to be repainting my living room and just bought a light shade of green. Lily Pond was in the running but I thought it might be a little dark because I have 2 wood walls that are stained and varnished. And I thought that I was gravitating toward more color because I am getting older and want what I WANT!! Silly me!

  9. Thank you for sharing your space with us. I like the idea of the tension line (I had been thinking of an extra long tension rod which has a larger diameter) for hanging quilted items. We have an IKEA about 3 hrs. from here and I think I really want to take a trip and see what they have. Your colors are great.

  14. What a great use of space! I'm finding that renting is somewhat restrictive because I can't paint, but I still try to decorate and make the space my own just like you have. Such fun ideas!

  21. Such a beautiful sewing space! I love the idea of the tension rod. We have an ikea very close, I might need to see if they have them there and how long they come. I've been wanting to make an inexpensive design wall with some felt or flannel and that might work perfectly! Thanks!

  23. What a lovely space you've created! I particularly like how you're using the Ikea tension line--I may have to try that as I pursue my own sewing room makeover.
