Today I hung the last picture, put down the rug, and my craft room is open for business.
I'm so pleased with the overall look of the place. I think it's a place where I can be comfortable. I surrounded myself with things I like.
The hand-stenciled bureau was given to me by Aunt Izzy.
I already started to scrapbook even before the room was finished. The collage on the wall is one I did and gave to Hubby to commemorate our traveling adventures.
My brand-new sewing machine, that I haven't even had a chance to try out yet! I'm anxious to do so!!
Just got this rug today off Craigslist. The woman said her mother hand-made this rug in the 1950's. I loved the colors and the ambiance it lends to the room.
This is the reason I have to say "sorta" when I said the room was finished. I put these shelves in the closet, but now I want some louvered doors. There are two closets, so brand new ones would be about $100. I'm keeping my eye out on Craigslist for some used ones.
Some of the cross-stitch I made over the years. The one on the right is the "Serenity Prayer" cross-stitched by my paternal grandmother.
I'm so happy my room is done. Now I have someplace to go and putter, create and enjoy. It was a joy to re-do the room. What a feeling of accomplishment!
