Okay, these first couple pictures are "before" shots. Normally my studio wouldn't look like this because the tables wouldn't have been pulled from the walls. However, my studio was just plain and bland. I have not had a chance to get to decorating my studio until now. We have been in our new home for just over six months now.
We loved the colors we picked for our home, but the same colors are everywhere. I walked into my sister's home a few months ago, used her bathroom and noticed her soft green paint on the walls. I told her that is what I wanted for my studio.
The shelving is awesome, but just wait until you see it against the green walls.
So my sister came down and helped me paint my studio. We used ColorPlace paint from Walmart - no joke - and just two coats of paint. The color is Extended Olive Branch 10533. Doesn't it look beautiful? It is so me. Thanks to Amy and her painting skills. All she used was a 1 inch paint brush and one roller. No tape! She is a painting genius.
So, I found a few things to put at the top of my shelving unit and rearranged my quilts and pictures. The bottom two layers of shelves are still hopelessly messy, but that is another project for another day.
I purchased the curtain rods, drapery and the mat on the floor at Lowe's. I love the curtains because it makes the room feel more warm. The picture of the Savior is right where I can see while I quilt. Whenever I am having a bad day, I look at His picture and it helps me to remember to keep things in perspective. The mat is a product that is soft and cushy. I love it. It has helped me so much while I quilt because the floor was just too hard and I hate wearing shoes.
The view of my room from the other side. It is a nice sized room. I can lay out a huge quilt in the center and that was mandatory when we were looking at house plans.
My cutting table and sewing table are together and right where I like them. I can not wait to spend hours in here just creating.
This is the machine that started it all. My grandma's 830 - I love it. I am going to have my daughter sit in here with me and learn to appreciate what this machine means to me.
The pictures look fabulous with the black frames against the green wall. I put up pictures that I took and mean something to me. I wanted this room to represent everything that I love in life.
So, holy cow! Cute quilt, right? It is like this quilt was made for my studio. I will change out my quilts every once and a while, but for now Daisy Mae is a perfect fit for the wall by my quilting table.
Last but certainly not least, my ironing board and Checkered Flowers quilt. Purple and green have always been one of my favorite color combinations and this quilt was made for this spot. I feel like I now have a room that reflects all of me. The ironing board is a new love too. My mom was so sweet and made me two new covers to get rid of the bland muslin cover before.
Well, I hope you like it. I plan on creating a lot of things in this room and I can not wait to share them all with you.
