Yesterday I had a quiet day alone to set things up. We had already cleared all of the shelves, and painted the room. I thought that painting might lift my spirits a little, as I try not to worry to much that my little ones will pull everything down, wander off, and either lose, or break everything (Ok I wasn't worrying, I was panicking ;) ) I'm not done with it yet - there is still quite a bit of stuff to sort through, but I got the basics set up, and I even sewed a curtain to contain it all a little.
Here's a couple shots of how it used to look - I can't find any with bigger shots of the whole room. We've never painted this room, and it was quite a mess. The ceiling was painted the same cantaloupe color as the walls which made the room feel a lot smaller than it is.
Here it is with the new curtain
The fabric is by Anna Maria Horner..... quite definitely my favorite fabric designer :)
You can see them here - just scroll down to the Drawing Room line.
There is something about her fabrics that just make me feel so good! I just love this curtain - it makes me smile in a big way every time I look at it :)
My hidden sewing nook...
This has worked perfectly actually, as I can leave the sewing machines set up.
The barest bones of all my fabric.... I actually love the look of stacks of fabric :)
