FINALLY! Let me just say that I am so glad to be finished with this task. It's hard to try and complete remodels while working a full-time job, maintaining a blog and sewing all at the same time, somethings got to give. I was determined to move in my last few items this past weekend and complete this room. I have had several rooms in my home dedicated to my sewing & crafts and last year I lost my sewing room because we decided to give our sons their own rooms. [Not that they really needed their own spaces because in reality that just means two dirty rooms instead of one!] So with that move I set up shop in the dining room, which is at the front of my home, yes you could see everything when you came in the door. At first I made sure that I kept the area clean but you know that wore off. I just hoped that nobody showed up unexpectedly!
......So I decided to move down to the basement, I had my business office down there in prior years and then it became the family computer area. It is not a finished basement but the walls are brick and the floor is concrete, we have a drainage ditch outlying the basement for the sub-pump. We are considering getting it finished but we have 8 years of college in the near future sooooooo, that may be a pipe dream. I figured I would be OK as is and decided to get the remodel started, which leads us to this reveal today.
These are the before pictures with all our stuff used to the back area we use for laundry. Yeah it was hard to do laundry for a while. I had to weed through things, throw out things and give some things a new home.
This is the faux leather that I used to make my room dividers, I think they came out really well and they will do for now.
I added decorative paper to the back of my shelves used as a base for my cutting/craft table.
Welcome to my newly decorated SEWing Space! [I still have a few nic-nacks to add but this is it right now.] The picture start at the front and then around the room.
My "Rippin Ain't Easy" unconventional masterpiece!
This area will be changed. I am going to add a floor length mirror under this window. I could not find a bare wall for a mirror and as I was taking these photos I realized that was a good open spot, so I will find a new home for those items on this wall.This here is Harry, who was thrown in the garage for several years. A fresh coat of golden paint and he is back bolder than ever living under my cutting table.[Harry is ode' to my mother]
