Since we moved about 3 weeks ago, I’ve been trying to perfect my new sewing space. It’s definitely large enough! I’m so lucky to have a whole room to myself. I’m still working on a couple of projects, including recovering my desk chair, finding suitable frames for the old photographs I currently have on the walls (or at least re-matting the photos – does anyone have any good ideas for a creative and cheap way to display photographs?) and making pillows for the futon (I borrowed these from our living room couches).

I bought my curtains from Target online, and I absolutely love them! They were a splurge, for sure, but ultimately worth it. The tall bookshelf is from Ikea. My sewing desk is probably my favorite piece in the room, and we found it at Cost Plus World Market for a steal. The cutting table and futon were both craigslist finds, and my antique mirror and lamp were given to me by my grandma but originally belonged to my great-grandmother. The small damask boxes (2 on the floor holding fabric and one on the bookshelf) were bought at T.J. Maxx for $10.00. Not bad for a tight budget!
I am so enjoying spending time in my new room. As you can see, I have the most beautiful view from that large picture window. It definitely helps me be more creative! Now if only I had the time to use it more often!
