Finally. . . after almost 6 weeks of complete chaos I have my sewing studio back! I can't tell you how over the moon I am. After we got over the initial shock of the magnitude of the demolition that needed to happen to repair our home. we began to think about some upgrades that we could do at the same time. So Ole and I came up with a plan. We made the decision to close in the doorway that used to be in my sewing room which led into the kitchen. You see my studio is actually the formal dining room in our home so a pass through makes sense if you are using it for a dining room but not so much if you want to have just a tiny bit of quiet with 4 munchkins in the house. So, we decided to close up the doorway and make that wall more useable and give me a lot more space for my "stuff"! We also added the beautiful french doors to my studio so I can really have peace and quiet if I want it. I absolutely love my new cozy sewing space. I repurposed a lot of what I had before, but added additional shelves, a gorgeous new light fixture, new curtains, new carpeting and a fresh coat of pink paint. Honestly, it feels like my very own boutique right inside of our house where I get to go to work every day and still be at home with my family. There are a few additional things that will be added in the near future like an adorable black and white striped awning over the entrance to my studio which will look a lot like this...
Now to get my kitchen finished up and then life can return to normal. Just wait till you see what I did in there. We are all loving all the changes, but I can promise you it's been a ton of work. I can't tell you how much I can't wait to get back to sewing but that's going to have to wait a few more days unfortunately. This week I am testing the kids out of their grades and then a little break before we get back to school. With all the work on the house we need to do some catching up and get back into school mode. Thanks for stopping by to visit.
