Sewing Room Blues

Today I wanted to turn on my sewing machine and continue with a top I was making out of the burdastyle magazine with some fabric I got from the amazing Gratacos shop in Barcelona. Plain white but with a lovely drape.

However there is a classic problem with this room. First, it is a standard UK box room. Suited to a single bed at best, and a slim desk. It was being used as a craft room by the previous owner as well but I suspect her items tended to also “travel” downstairs.

Anyway, I digress. Secondly, it still has some boxes in it, our shoes and a large wardrobe and chest of drawers left behind by the previous owners. Originally I thought the furniture would come in handy and we could just repurpose it, but being honest with myself, it is just crowding the space.

So I’ve started pinning on my pinterest board.

Looks like IKEA and I are about to have a torrid love affair.

In the meantime, I am looking for more inspiration, and trying to tackle one box at a time. 1 down, 4 to go….
