Sneaky Peek

I'm off work today and tomorrow, so I thought I'd take some pictures of my finished sewing room while the glorious morning sunlight was streaming through the windows :)

All my fabric storage is along the left-side wall if you're standing in the doorway. These are Itso storage cubes I bought at Target. I like this storage solution best because I can add more cubes as I need them. The bins at the top hold my scraps (sorted by color), and the white drawers contain my patterns)

My favorite cubby - Japanese fabric + AMH Little Folks Voiles (I have at least 1 yard cuts of all the prints...I'm such a hoarder!)

Here's where I store all my Holiday/Seasonal fabric + Home Decor fabric. I really need to get more cubes so I can get rid of these junky plastic drawers.

(the plastic bins on the left hold all my fat quarters...the big cubes you saw earlier hold only 1/2 yard or larger cuts of fabric)

Check out these awesome covers I found stuffed in a storage box. I bought this light switch plate and 4 matching electrical outlet covers on clearance at Anthro a few years back. After I finished painting the sewing room, I randomly thought "didn't I buy some covers that would match this room perfectly back when we lived in Chicago?" I did. Score!

This is Whiskers giving me what I call the "sass face" because he felt I was spending too much time taking photos, and not enough time scratching his tummy. Look how he's eyeballing me! I always sternly tell him "don't you dare look at me in that tone of voice!" whenever he gives me this look (that was a line my mom used on us as teenagers, lol!)

In case anyone is wondering, the wall color is Metro Gray from Benjamin Moore, and the curtains are from Patty Young's new Sanctuary line. The print is Seaweed Wrap in Seafoam.

That's all for now folks! I have to run because I desperately need to finish my bag for the Goodie Bag Swap...the mailing deadline is Friday and I have to put together a messenger bag by then :)

Before I got to the end of the post I was going to ask about your curtains. What a lovely sewing room! :)

I really love that wall color. I am going with a color like that when I finally buy my own house and stop renting. I really want a gray on the walls :)
Love how it turned out, so pretty. I bet it feels good to have your very own probably dont ever want to leave. I know when I first got my own room I would just walk in and look at it. :)

Totally jealous of your room, your stash, and your sense of style! lol. Glad to see my little quiltie hanging there. I really loved that one! :)
