Sewing Room Makeover


This weekend my dad came into town and helped me give my sewing room a MAJOR makeover :) I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it turned out!!! The "before" was not so pretty, but the "after" turned out beautifully. I love my dad for coming here and making it all happen.
Here I am with my dad after we finished. Isn't it pretty? Too bad the color isn't really showing up right in the pictures. Its such a soothing room to be in and an even better room to create in. This wall is definitely my favorite. I can't believe we were able to cover the black with just one coat of paint.

So many shelves, drawers, and cupboards to fit all my stuff :) It's a dream come true! You should have seen how cluttered all my stuff was in Puerto Rico. I had a fold up table and everything else was stuffed in a bin or in a big pile next to my table. Now everything feels so clean and organized.

Remember the blue blinds? Well, my dad spray painted them! I'll only be here for 9 months so it was a great quick fix. This is my accent wall.

Notice my new serger! Did I mention that I found a Bernina serger on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago? HEAVEN! Anyway, a big thanks to my dad for all of his time and hard work. It was so fun working on this room together. A memory I don't think I'll ever forget.

It's just great, Katie! I love the colors, and it does look so clean and organized. Watch out or you'll come to love the house! ha ha. Great find on the serger. I have one but really have never learned to use it. I only use it to make rolled hems, and every time I get it out I have to relearn all over again!

Oh Katie, I LOVE it! I have to admit I'm a little jealous! It turned out so cute just like you said. I love those built in cabinets and shelving. So glad your Dad was able to visit and help out with this project. You guys did an awesome job. LOVE IT! TTYL
