Before I begin with my update on what I've accomplished so far on my soon to be new sewing room, I'd like to say Thank you to all of you for all the sweet comments you've been leaving me on my blog and emailing. I appreciate all your feedback and the wonderful ideas and blogs that you all have been sharing with me. To answer a few questions... yes, I am CQing when I'm not trying to get my room done and yes, I do plan on dyeing up more laces...soon - I just need to find 3 straight days to devote to it. I will jump in here during my sewing room updates with new CQ items too.
WEW... remember the days when you could jump out of bed full steam and do a million and one things and still be going at 10:00 at night? Well... I have to admit - those days are gone LOL!
Saturday morning I got up bright and early with one mission on my mind. I was bound and determined to get my sewing room completely painted before the weekend was over. Yep - I did it.... but when I woke up today my poor old body was a aching!
After setting up the new wire basket unit and looking at my bright white closet cabinets, something just didn't look right. I couldn't stand looking at such a fresh white newness compared to the beige color of the wall trim, cabinets and the wooden doors. So..... pulled out the primer and paint and went to town. I did in fact end up getting it all done -
Once I started painting the cabinets I could really see the difference - the old look just seemed so dull.... can you see how fresh that white looks? (sorry about the pictures, need to get some new batteries)
Once the painting in the room was done I couldn't stop there! I had left over paint that I was going to have to dump back into the can so decided to see what else I could paint.... call me one paint happy gal!
A few years ago I bought these two wooden CD towers at a local Christmas Tree Shop for about $4.95 each. They were originally red with doors on them - ugly! At the time I bought them for my FQs but since I have the new wire baskets (which by the way hold 168 FQ's in each!) I decided to paint them up and have Rob hang them up to be used to store beads. Total cost: A little bit of time and $0.... I'm liking this recyling!
