This past weekend, my lovely daughter-in-law went with our other daughters on a trip to Chicago. They left on Friday and didn't come home until Monday.
Before she left, my DIL took the time to paint her sewing room. She's been wanting to fix it up and make it a bright and cheerful place to be crafty.
It's room with lots of sunlight and a few pieces of hand-me-down furniture (from me, mostly. It's like a trip down kitchen-table-memory-lane in there) and there was a lot of dark, mismatched, and scratched wood. I know she had plans for painting things but with her working two jobs and all, I don't know how she finds the time!
So while dropping off some of my other boys at their house over the weekend, so that they could help their older brother finish removing the old rotted deck in the back yard, I snuck a peek at her sewing room paint job. Such cute colors!
I was inspired. I decided to try and help her get ahead so she could jump in to using her new space.
So I call my already busy Handy Hubby and ask what he thought about helping me with painting up some furniture for our peach of a daughter-in-law. I mean she is an absolute peach and this is something Handy agrees upon so he said to bring it on home. (He is far better to me than I deserve...and he would agree with that too!)
Load it up boys!
I grabbed the old brass lamp sitting there because I had a vision of a way to make it a lot more charming.
So I spray painted the lamp and got out the fabrics and trims and did a re-do. Went for a cute cottage look.
|My youngest daughter wanted to add her touches to the room so she made the banners for the windows.|
All finished! At least for now. We are looking around for a hutch or some bookcases to fix up so that she can display her fabrics and yarns (oh my goodness, can that girl knit!)
And yes, I think she liked it.
