Sewing Room/ Amelia's Playroom
Hurray! I finally have a space to sew in that I don't have to pack up and shove into a closet with in a few hours of starting on a project (I used to work at our dining room table.) I have so much fabric that I haven't unpacked yet, so I am still working those logisitics out.
Sorry the picture quality isn't great. I am so excited about all the chromotherapy this room provides. It used to be a really drab pinkish- brown color, and felt so small and dreary. I am keeping most of Amelia's stuff in here, and it's nice to have a little station to park it all. I probably make a sweep through the house about six times a day, putting everything back in there, since our small living space can be overwhelmed with clutter so quickly.
Here is Amelia's little corner. I have several layers of paper on the table so I can just remove one every week and not have to re- cover it more than once a month, hopefully! On the left is one of the only two closets in the whole house, mostly taken up by the water heater... and the vacuum cleaner. Maybe if we can get rid of the carpet in this room and upstairs, we can also get rid of the vacuum cleaner! As a side note, we will probably take the carpet up in this room pretty soon, since it looks like it's pretty straight forward hardwoods under there!
We now have all of our books shelved and don't need bulky bookcases taking up precious floorspace! The bottom shelf is Amelia's, and she can't reach the other ones (another big "hurray!") You can also see all of the light flooding into the kitchen from the glass back door here-- such an improvement and definitely a mood lifter.
