Crafty Corner

So you may remember I had a bit of a spruce up in the sewing room a while back, I managed to clear out a whole Ikea expedit unit because I just didn't have the room in my tiny space and it was beginning to look like an episode of Hoarders! eek! Time for a de-clutter...
And this is the finished result ! I completely love it. I scored the antique carver chair (and 5 others, now used in my dining room) for £20 on Ebay!! I found them locally so it was a really great deal :) I got the pink shelves from my local auction house last month, it was originally pine but I thought the candy pink would be a great colour for the sewing room and break up the dark wood. It holds all my 'cute' things that I like to keep out on display and my sewing patterns (modern only, I keep my vintage ones in another part of the room - see more on that here).Once I use them I like to store them in clear zip-lock bags to keep all the tissue patterns safe! To the right I've finally hung my doll quilt I made last year! I'm so pleased to have it out on display now.
To the left of the chair you can see my antique wooden sewing box, which I adore! It has a lift-up lid and removable wood insert tray to hold smaller items, I use that to hold my current epp project with thread, small scissors etc so I can transport it downstairs when I need to. You can also spy another new vintage sewing box! The wicker one with a green lid. I have a sickness, I really do... 
I also found a nice spot for most of my sewing and craft reference books. It makes for a nice little cosy reading corner :) now I think I just need a pillow for the chair, a table topper for the sewing box and some more mini quilts for the wall and it's about complete! Lot's to be getting on with again! Have a great weekend folks, xo

  4. I am so envious of your craft room! Currently living in a flat with my boyfriend where we don't even have space/a spare room for a desk to study at, so I have to re-arrange our side table every time I want to sew and sit at the sofa! It works, but I can't wait until someday I can have a study/sewing/craft room to organize, decorate, and call my own!
