These are pictures of my living room!! Now, normally I am okay with the messes I make because I am a creative kind of gal!! But, since I have been working, my messes linger longer and its starting to bug the heck out of me.
Now, I see some of the beautifully appointed sewing rooms and studios of my fellow bloggers and I can just say, "Wow, how can they keep their space so neat and tidy?"
Plus, when I get visitors, I always have to say as they walk in the front door, "Sorry about the mess!!" So, I decided to make a change. My little house has 2 bedrooms, one small and one not so small. Up until now, the bedroom was the larger of the rooms and I have decided to switch them out and put my sewing room in the larger bedroom!!
Here are the beginning transformations~
The wallpaper was some of that wonderful embossed, shiny paper from the 1970s!!
That was not pre-pasted, but instead required the hanger to paint the wall with wallpaper paste first!!
And the carpet was this ugly blue-green 1970s sculpted carpet that was covering these gorgeous hard wood floors!! Now that is another story - the previous owners used deck screws to screw the boards down to keep them from squeeking, I guess. Anyway, yiks!!
Then when looking for a new color for the walls, I did some research on color therapy and found that blue was the color for creativity. Remember above how I told you I was a creative person?? Well, now, blue must certainly be the color for the walls of a room to foster my creativity, right??
So, I am trying to decide - the the middle color which is periwinkle blue - my fave!! Or the lighter blue that is probably a better choice!! What do you think, periwinkle blue or Ocean Dream??
Stay tuned for updates!!
