NEW SEWING ROOM

For those of you who know I am painting my sewing room, the color is called, Sea Foam Breeze...just a tadd blue for my taste...but I am not painting again!
See the little box with the 3/8 and C 4...it is a drawer I got at the Greenwood Mercantile in Kansas City, MO. It had to have been a drawer with nuts or bolts...so perfect to keep my little paint bottles out of site.
I spray painted all my book/magazine holders Krylon Dove white, the one for plastics. I have always wondered how well that worked...and let me tell you, it works great! So for $8.00 I have all new, light colored holders! I thought about mod podge and scrapbook paper for the fronts...don't you think?
I am really in a "lighter color mode" lately. As you know I have painted anything I can get my hands on, I told my husband not to stand still or he would be next ! I think I am finished in that room, but never say finished right?
....speaking of painting, check here for a fun paint chip project
I almost forgot...I wanted to tell you about this cute site with fun, fast little projects!

Beautiful - I love lighter colors! I love your idea with the mod podge too. I like that stuff a lot. Sure wish I was painting!

That is a great color to backdrop all your projects! You could cyle through quilts every week if you wanted to...put a quilt hanger on the wall and just keep switching them out. I need to do something like that!

I love it! And what a great idea to paint all of those magazine holders so they match...I've got so many mismatched holders that I think I should paint them too!

Isn't it amazing what some new paint can do! Seems to change how you feel every time you walk in the room. Your sewing space looks great!
