Well, the last week has had me hammering, screwing and generally working jolly hard and all in the highest temperatures our little spot has had for many a long while.
Recently I posted about my makeover that was planned for my sewing room. The previous state of the room was not something to be proud of, and with all the metal shelving it felt just too industrial, if not at times practical. Soooooo, with my darling man out of the country I did what any self respecting (and rather sneaky) woman would do, I went for a little, OK a lot, of retail therapy.
After drawing up scaled plans (I know, more than a bit pedantic) and scouring web sites to find dimensions of various furniture available in our area I had every thing chosen and knew where it would all go.
Off I went, yahoo, shopping!!!!!!!!!!!! Everything I needed, and a few things I wanted I got. This is not something I have done before and the truth is for a while (almost a nanosecond) there was a touch of guilt at spending so much on myself. But the day came when it all arrived. Shock, horror, it was all in flat packs.
The long and the short of it is that I got it all built. Then it was time to put all of my
crap precious bits back into the room. Now I had been fairly ruthless and threw out an awful lot but despite the fact that there is more storage I’ll be blowed if I can get it all back without a bit of pushing and shoving.
In fact, looking back at the before photo’s, whew I had a lucky escape and isn’t it strange how they all look so blue, exactly how the room made me feel, but not any longer tee hee.
Happy sewing one and all
