A project is never done. You have all seen my new craft room and the desk I scored for free. Well, as soon as the weather gets warmer outside I want to paint it and change the hardware. I am still decided whether I want to paint it white (which would be more versitile in the future if I want to change up the decor) or to paint it a bright color (which would really pop against my current craft room colors).
But here is an example of what it could look like in white. Holly from Life in the Fun Lane re-finished a desk identical to mine. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. She did such a great job.
I'll be heading to Ikea on Friday to get the finishing touches to my sewing/craft room (photos to come). And then I'll be heading to the antique mall with my mom, hoping to find some vintage sewing notions of my own :)
One of my new year's resolutions is to learn to sew. My godmother gave me her sewing machine to use so I already have a jump start. I now just need to learn how to use it! So I will be signing up to take a beginning sewing class at The Needle Shop in Chicago. I have heard really great things about them and am excited to get started!
My goal is to be able to make my own purses and things for my apartment- like curtains and pillows.
While browsing some items on Etsy, I came across some things that I would love to make myself.
I am obsessed with anything that has ruffles. How cute is this little wristlet??
