Sewing Room Treasures

Even though I have what seems to be an endless list of projects that I have started on I can not help myself. I have been dreaming abt a sewing/craft room make over. I am the only gal in this house so I want a truly girly room.

This is one of my inspiration photos from Shabby Scraps. Her entire home is beautiful. Our craft rooms are shaped very similar. I love the entire shabby chic theme. However even though her white walls are lovely I have to have more color on mine.

Which brings me to Heather Bailey's craft room!! I just LOVE it to no end!! So my room will be a mix of both of these ladies beautiful spaces. I have already started collecting treasures for my future smaller scale redo.

The Hubster bought me these the other night at Target. They are perfect to keep all my sewing supplies and scraps in. Eventually they will get some chalk board decals on them. The best thing abt them is that they were in the $1 section and just $2.50. Yeah, that is mind boggling to me as well so I wonder if it is really called the $1 section after all.

They also have these matching trash cans! I had to have this one in Tiffany Blue. They had pink but it was more of a purple so it stayed behind. $2.50 as well. They even have closet organizers and all to match.

At Home Goods yesterday I saw this lamp before we even entered the store. It had been awhile since the lamp section had been restocked so I knew right away there was indeed only good things to come. I just love the shape of the shade and the bling on it! The Fleur de leis at the bottom is just up my ally as well.

This rug was patiently waiting for me to take it home as well! I had seen it on Friday but put it back. I was very surprised it was still there. It has all the colors in it I am working with. I think I will be placing it in the adjoining bathroom.

Here is my peace of resistance!! Found it on the local yard sale site for just $10!! It had creamy colored eyelet fabric on top of the shades but last night I ripped it off and found the pink. A lil' fruffing and they will be perfect. Not quite sure where I will hang it and to be honest I have a CRAZY idea of where I want to hang it but I will save that for another post. It has something to do with a ceiling fan that has to stay.

And one last treasure! A few weeks back I mentioned this beautiful desk I found on Craigs List but they wanted wayyyy toooo much for it at least for me. It was not budget friendly at all.

Last weekend The Hubster took me to go and pick this up that I found on the local yard sale site for half of what the gal wanted for the first desk on Craigs.

It is not quite the same but will be just as lovely in the end. I am picturing a crystal knob on the one drawer!

This is the hutch portion of the desk. It is huge. I love the bead board backing! I can picture my new Target buckets sitting on them.

Then here is the chair that came with it. It has a nasty vinyl cover on the seat that must come off. I have been trying to find a fabric that jumps out at me for it. So far nothing. The entire thing will be painted a creamy white. I am a bit hesitant to do it though since it is partially made of veneer. I am hoping to score some of Annie Sloan's chalk paints since she says the chalk paint will cover just abt anything without any prep to include melamine which I am hoping is like veneer just maybe!?

So now that I have day dreamed enough I am off to tackle this and to make dinner for my men!:) Hope your week is going well thus far!


  1. The desk and hutch look like it will be great....especially with the matching chair. I can't wait to see what your craft room will look like...you are so luck you have the extra space to make one!

  2. OH LA LA...dont you just love a grat craft room. I just posted today about Heather Bailey's craft room, clearly, we are kindred spirits :)! Nice to meet you!

  3. What great finds!! Can't wait to see your dream come true. : )

  4. Ooooh, I love that lamp! I'm going to Home Goods to see if they have one and I'm getting it. I can't think of anywhere to put it {maybe on my craft table} bu I'm loving it! I need one of those trashcans, too. I almost wish Target and Home Goods were in closer shopping centers!

    Love your choices for inspiration rooms and I'm sure yours will be "you"! Have fun with it though!

  5. Oh, the room will be gorgeous when you get all of your treasures put together!!
