Sewing Room Redo. . .AFTER!

The room doubles as a guest room. . .
Rug and curtains are from Urban Outfitters. . .

I didn't redo the whole dresser, just painted the top and the fronts of the drawers yellow and put on new knobs (from the clearance bin at Anthropologie).
The kids now have their own table with their OWN machine. They have been sewing up a storm since it was finished!

Felt and button letters I made for the wall over my sergers. . .
These birds out of Harmony Art organic fabric are also over the sergers. . .
Framed bulletin board, I already had and you can see it in the before photos. I took it apart and recovered it with some Amy Butler fabric. . .
Peg boards from Meijer, cute jars are Liberty of London for Target. . .
Thread jars from WalMart. . .
I covered an old computer desk with oil cloth (stuck with strong carpet tape), I had the white, the orange I ordered from Oil Cloth Addict. . .

Here is the quilt (it hangs over the bed) I said I was going to make with the fabric from this post. . .
Here is the refinished little table, I used some of the extra orange oil cloth to keep the machine from scratching the paint. There is also a piece of it under the television on the dresser. The boxes to the right are also Liberty of London for Target. . .
Drawer detail. . .
I estimate the total for this project was about $400. I already had all the furniture and the paint. Yes, I do understand that it is obnoxious to have 5 sewing machines in one person's craft room. However, do you KNOW how much I sew??? I have light thread in one of the sergers and dark in the other. The machine on the upper shelf is an embroidery one. And, the one for the girls I got at Overstock.com for only $144, and I LOVE it. So do the girls. My Elna machines are just too expensive for them to "play" with. :) What do you think of my new room?

Oh so beautiful!!!
VERY inspiring, as everything else around here.
Did I already mention I'm very upset I didn't get one of the 80 bags? snif...
Sorry... just so sad.

Green Bag Lady Teresa said...

Thanks Sharron, now you have to come and see it in real life! Yes, come make skirts, how many years have we been talking about that??

Lilian--I am so sorry you didn't get a bag, don't worry though, we will do another freebie soon and will give more than 80, hopefully you will get a bag then!

I love it! I wish I have a sewing room, but for now it's in our bedroom. One of these days maybe I will get an addition in our bedroom then maybe I can make that into a craft room.

it is amazing!!! so jealous, but also inspired.
my sewing room used to be shared with the computer desk, but we moved the desk so that we could move my daughters crib out of my sons room, so now my daughter and my machine share a room.
there are some fun ideas here that i might have to borrow while i reorganize the room. good thing my daughter is only 6 months so i have time to do it!
your room turned out beautiful, love it!

Now I want to go home and redo my whole house!

Rachelh said...

Oh Teresa! I just had a chance to catch up on your blog, and I saw your wonderful sewing room redo. Fantastic! And glad you stayed high and relatively dry during the flooding. Crazy to see that much water in Nashville!

Green Bag Lady Teresa said...

Thanks Rachel. You are so sweet. The room was a lot of work, but well worth is considering how much time I spend in here!

:) Teresa

so much detail in your makeover. I really love the pegboards, but it's all impressive and nice the kids have their own machine by you now!
