Sewing Room BEFORE

Added Sep 10, 2010

Eureka , Califor...






Here are some pics of my sewing room before. I went Ikea crazy and in about a month or so I should have my sewing room complete! Shelves/bookcases, hard wood/laminate wood flooring, curtains, in-closet craft desk, etc… I am soo excited. The 2×2 bookcases on wheels are perfect for me for my cutting table and then I can roll them against the wall when I want them out of the way. I’ll add some corner shelves.

Question: what do you think of the blue walls. I can’t decide if I should leave them or paint them pale pale pink. Should I add a chair rail?

    Can’t wait to see what you do with this room as I need some ideas myself. Love the blue color, one of my favorite colors along with chocolate brown. I have a large sewing room but envy your closet. Makes me want to start reorganizing my room. Please post lots of pics when you are done!!!! Happy Sewing in the meantime!!!

    Love the blue! :-) Just bought that Ikea-chair too, only in red, for my new sewing-room. Looking forward to seeing how yours end up looking. :-)

    I love the blue, it’s got some great vibrations going on with the green chair. Add some orange and you’ve got a great trio of retro-looking colors!

    I like the pale blue, looks nice and calm. I’m so jealous you have a sewing room, I only have a corner jajaja.
