2017 is rolling in swell. With our new home in the country your Lyric now has a new sewing haven! I am sew excited I could 💃dance.
It just occurred to me that I should have taken photographs of this room before placing items inside. Oh well, it is a hot mess now! Besides, the flavor of Sew Lyrically Vintage blog is about keeping it 100, being real, not pretentious. Sew, here we go.
Let me tell you what I am working with. The room was originally to be the master bedroom according to the previous owner who spoke to the people that had the house built. Shhh, we won’t tell her she is a bedroom. The area measures 11′ × 17′ via the walk-off method. I had the nerve to think, only for a second, that this space was not enough for my needs. Oh, but I put myself in check with the quickness and corrected that erroneous thinking.
There is a seafoam green carpeting that I am sure needs replacing. Was beautiful in its day. Limited budget here so deep cleaning will have to do until we are able to do better.
See the dirty well-walked area there in front of the craft table? That is where her dresser was placed. Which reminds me of a point I should explain. We obtained our home from a long time friend of mine and moved in before she moved out for a couple of reasons. One being she recently lost her husband, was not sleeping well. She did not like being alone here.
Carpet cleaning was supposed to have been completed before we arrived. We also helped her pack. Our things were and some still are, on the car port!!!! There simply was not room for 20 years of her things and our things inside the dwelling.
The room comes with two closets. The one below is a narrow walk-in closet. It was probably originally going to be a bath since this was to be a master bedroom.
It has been designated as my wardrobe closet. Yes, that makes sense about a master bath idea because there is a hollow core door present whereas the other closet has a double shutter style closure.
The closet above will house all the sewing supplies that I do not want to be seen. Don’t you just love the photos of sewing spaces where everything is prissy, new and magazine perfect? Okay Lyric, stop being catty.
See the corner there to the right of the window? A comforter and my grandson’s Tigger are currently stashed there. I am picturing a cozy seated area for Bible reading and meditation.
To the left of the window is an antique desk. That will be my personal study area where I prepare for my ministry, think about/sketch out sewing and home decorating projects.
For now these lacy curtains are staying for privacy until I decide upon window treatments.
Feeling blessed and very excited to have this space. Stay tuned with me as it develops into something usable. Truly, it is a process.
