This was my Christmas present from my husband :)
He is very thoughtful and took weeks and weeks planning this.
I wasn't allowed in here for over a week.
It wasn't so bad since I was busy preparing for a visit from my daughter and her family, although I did dream a lot of sewing.....Lol!
I should have taken photos of my room before the makeover.
I did remember to take a photo of my husband removing the little boy wallpaper border from the wall.
It was really difficult to remove too!!!
This is the furniture that was in the room(in a different house).
It was some furniture that was in my husband's office years ago before they redecorated.
We were able to buy it, and it has served me well.
This is what I saw when I opened the door, fresh paint on the walls and a beautiful work table.
Not just any table, but a gorgeous table!
It's made of recycled telephone poles and is really smooth :)
The holes are perfect for threading the cord of my sewing machine and the light that sits on the table, or any other appliance or thing that has a plug!
Beautiful and practical.
Isn't the lamp incredible?
I've admired it at the store before and yes, the pulleys are functional!
There was never a light on the ceiling before, now there is!
A really cool one at that :)
What a neat little space, "This is the Life".
This little cabinet will hold my quilting books.
I can look over at them and be motivated and inspired :)
While I'm sitting at my beautiful new table, this is the view I have.
My husband told me that he went to so many furniture stores, looking for the right pieces.
They had to have storage and fit into the space.
The little red piece has two drawers on the top row and two cupboards with shelves on the bottom section.
The cupboards on the side both have cupboards with shelves on the bottom also.
I don't have to look sideways to watch TV (or DVD's) anymore.
Isn't that the cutest clock?
Maybe some vinyl lettering on the space above?
My husband decorated this cupboard with some of my treasures!
I think he should take up a hobby as an interior decorator :)
My daughter Lindsay decorated this cupboard :)
This is a view out the door and down the hall.
My paper doll quilt is on that wall :)
Most of my fabric is behind those closed doors :)
See the awesome red leather chair?
I'll show you a closeup, but notice the floor lamp behind it...
Look at the cute modern/vintage chair that I get to sit in while I sew!
It's really comfy :)
Did you know that red is my favorite color?
My husband does :)
It hugs me while I sit in it and it also swivels.
My husband said that I could sit there and embroider by the window in the day, and have the light of the lamp at night.
On Christmas morning, my husband told me to look in my stocking.
It looked empty, but I felt inside and there was an envelope.
There was a clue and I had to search for the gift.
"In your stocking it would not fit
so you're going to have to look for it.
Need a clue? Here's one for you....
In a place that washes....
But has never washed.
(We [my grandchildren and I] looked in the washing machine, and then remembered that we have a full bathroom on the main floor. The shower in that room has never been used, because there isn't a bedroom on the main floor.)
There it was, in the bathtub :)
The most beautiful sewing machine I've ever seen!!!
A Bernina 750 QE.
I'm dying to learn how to use it!
I hope you've enjoyed the tour, I'm so happy with my new sewing digs.
Thank you Ricky, I'm thrilled to death!!!
I'm definitely spoiled :)
