Anyone who saw this post a few weeks ago, knows that my sewing room was in desperate need of some attention. It was THAT kid in Wal-Mart. The one with disheveled hair, no shoes, mosquito bites on her arms, and an attitude that makes Joe Dirt cringe. Yes, I had a white trash sewing room.
Yet I am marketing my things as "delicious baby accessories hand crafted in contemporary styles and stimulating textures." Kind of an oxymoron. I needed the office (now craft room-- poor hubs) to reflect what I'm going for, here.
So, our Christmas gift to each other was a nice, crispy new office! And a crispy new Apple computer and a masculine(ish) desk for it all to compensate the hubs for giving up his dreams of a "man cave."
So, without further adieu... enjoy!
|I adore my teal pegboard! I just spray painted it with 2 coats of Valspar primer, and then used 2-3 coats of Valspar teal (matte). It ended up being 2 cans of primer and 2 cans of teal. The thread, ribbon, and etc items are placed on various pegboard hooks from Lowe's.|
|I am in love with this desk- you can find it (in pieces) here, at Office Max- Brenton Studio Collection. I also ADORE my sewing machine, the Brother SE 400- it's as inexpensive as you can find (that will embroider and monogram and connect to your PC). I found it on Amazon.|
|You name the color, I've got it. Except hunter green. Blech.|
|Did I mentioned we got a new Apple? I am loving iPhoto's "edge blur" option.. :)|
|I have accepted that this is as tidy as my shelves will ever be. I just have too. much. stuff. But a little edge blur action is just what the doctor ordered!|
|My husband's 27 inch monitor that he had to have. Oh, look! I'm reading Sweetish Baby's blog!|
