Sewing Room Before and After

OK, it's not quite after because I still have some boxes to unpack, but it's pretty close. I hope I don't regret unpacking the fabric because our bathroom remodel is still in progress, but I'm trying to clear out the guest room so we can set up the bed again. We're going to have a friend stay with us while she looks for a house.

Anyway......here's how it looks at the end of the day today. (It's extra dark because it's pouring rain outside.)
Tragically, we had some damage in the plaster when the guys demo'd the bathroom (on the other side of the wall). We'll have to mask off the stencilling and patch that spot and repaint it.
Under the table is full of bathroom fixtures. Hopefully those will go away in spring.
Here is how the room looked when we moved in.
And when we looked at the house, before buying it.
Yeah, I know some folks prefer the bright painted wood, but I love the richness of the stained wood....and it's my house. LOL

  1. I am jealousy of your beautiful sewing room. The setup looks great and you should have a wonderful time sewing in it.

    1. It's only neat and tidy because I just moved in an I haven't unpacked everything yet. It will look messy soon enough. LOL

  3. Bet stripping all that paint wasn't fun, but worth it for the beautiful result. Doubt that wood was ever meant to meet a paintbrush! Your color selections make the room seem much taller. Also have to mention how jealous I am of all that thread and neatly folded fabric. Mine is neatly folded...and smashed into tubs!

    1. Stripping paint is never fun, but I think it's a worthwhile investment of effort. I love the stained wood.

  4. Good to see it coming along. I can't really see what happened to your wall. Did some plaster fall off from the banging on the other side?

    1. Yeah, a piece of plaster broke off the wall when the guys demo'd the bathroom. I think we can just patch it.

    2. We had some small issues like that from the roofing job and John easily fixed it up so you won't have any problem.

  6. Wow, that looks so much better with natural wood! I have a lot of respect for how you've stripped so much paint off your trim.
