New Makeover For My Sewing/Craft Room

I stood in the middle of my sewing/craft room last week just looking around and just like that, I decided to change color schemes. If you know me at all, you know when I make my mind up - it is a done deal. So Friday I went to Hobby Lobby and picked out my fabrics (3 different patterns), spray paints (4 different shades) and a few odds and ends I thought I might need. Then I got busy on Saturday and Sunday. Since I am off today for Teacher In-service - I can do a little more today.

Here are a couple of before pictures - 
I no longer have this bench

Here are after pictures
 Isn't this metal sign cute? It is from Hobby Lobby.
Baskets were painted, all new valances.

Yes, I could kick myself - I cut the chevron fabric the wrong way! I will have to redo those 2 valances.

Painted the rocker chair yellow (it was aqua) Painted shelf gray (it was dark brown) Still have those 2 pillows to cover in the fabric that is laying on them. The big rug will have to go.
Painted the little table (was dark brown) Painted the little metal chair (was aqua)

I love all the glass jars. (Hobby Lobby) I have decorated some with chevron burlap ribbon. 
 I still have a big shelf to put back up (it is still drying - painted gray (was white) and I need new indoor/outdoor carpet and rugs. Right now it is dark blue. I would like shades of gray. This was originally a Sunroom - and we enclosed it about a year ago. I still have a few plants I keep in there. The big cabinet in the before pictures will stay white/black but with yellow knobs. 


  1. Looks great! I will be tackling my craft room this spring.

  2. Looks like a great place to get crafty. I love your makeover. I didn't even realize, at first, that it was chevron on the valances. I thought maybe it was a leopard print. It still looks good. I love all your thoughtful touches and updates.
