My Sewing Space - v4.0


Welcome to my sewing room!
 So we've been in this house for less than a month and my sewing space (previously known by the old owners as the dining room) is coming together!  At least this side of the room is...
You can read a bit about my fabric storage dilemma here, although I've already got it sanded and ready to be primed and painted asap.  So I guess there's no turning back now!  And the cabinet will be white, so the furniture colors aren't too crazy in this room... it IS the first room you see when you walk in the front door!  Eeek~

The walls are a light-medium gray color and I quite love it!  The sewing table had a recent paint job too - to bright fuchsia.  I probably wouldn't do high-gloss again because it takes weeks to dry, but other than that, I'm smitten!  Waaaay back in the day it was our kitchen table, part of a 5 piece set from Ikea.  I kid you not. 

Four embroidery hoops are ready to have fabric tucked into them - I just need to choose which fabric! Why so many decisions still to be made?!

I also plan to put up a design wall next to my sewing table, using that cool DIGNITET Curtain Wire from Ikea.  I've actually got 2 sets of wire and hooks thanks to my little sis, who always has my back! So one for the design wall, one to actually hang curtains on.  Here's my next decision: What fabric to use for curtains???? I'm baffled... maybe something yellow and grey?  Possibly graphic and bold?  Possibly Echo by Lotta Jansdotter?!  Any suggestions?  Leave me a link to any bright ideas you may have for curtains!!! Its next on my list to buy!  (Nothing too girly - my husband still has to occasionally glance in this room and I don't want him to cringe at a wall of overly-flowered curtains.

I don't have specific suggestions, but I'd say go bold and graphic. A girl with a pink sewing desk needs bold curtains too!!

My sewing room is supposed to be the dining room too hehe I like the grey for sure... don't know if the yellow would clash too much with the pink. I think as long as you keep it graphic, bold yet simple, it ought to be great. And I have that same curtain wire... bought it 2 yrs ago and the hubs has yet to put it up!!!

You know these you have in your shop?http://www.etsy.com/listing/86813122/two-pillow-covers-18-inch-rainbow-of?ref=em
Curtains in that gray with a patchwork strip of color down them would be cool....

One of the Shades of Grey prints by Daisy Janey or the pink on white wavy line by Lotta Jansdotter would look fabulous.
