I finally cleaned just so you guys could have a little peek at where I sew (and sometimes take pretty photos.)
The dresser was a thrift find that my mom painted for me. :)
lamp, frame: TJ Maxx vases, jar, mini-chest, painted silver mirror: thrifted
Craigslist chair, thrifted mini shelves and suitcases. The trunk is a family heirloom.
On the shelves is my husband's sports collection from childhood -- on the bottom shelf are boxes and binders full of cards. The tops shelves have bobbleheads, figurines and books. The random Barbie is vintage from my Grandma.
bookcase, chest: thrifted pillows: handmade by me
my sewing area and inspiration board.
The sewing machine is a Janome I got on Craigslist for $40. Which is amazing.
The desk is also a thrifted find, painted by my mom. The pendant light is my mom's design-- she thrifted the frame, then bought a lamp kit and had my dad put it together.
I found the chair on the side of the road and painted it & recovered the cushion.
The white chest holds fabric and was another thrifted find.
I love my print from Mary Kate McDevitt-- my husband got it for me and it's often my mantra cuz I really do love to get things done! (but what I haven't done is find a frame for it...)
The typewriter and vintage cameras were Christmas gifts from my parents-- they found them in an antique shop near my Grandma's house in California.
Could you get the theme from the room? Nearly everything is thrifted or from Craislist. While it takes time to put together a room like this, I love the character and stories behind each piece.
I also can't take a lot of credit for this room. As an interior designer, my mom is a devoted thrift shopper and Craigslist browser and she picks up a lot of great stuff for me. (You can read about her job here.)
I'm not going to lie to you-- I cleaned this room Saturday but I already have fabric strewn everywhere again as I've working hard to add some new stuff to the shop. (I hope you will be as excited about as I am about the new products!)
thanks for stopping by for my little room tour-- you can see more about my house in the tour of my little bedroom here.
