We are all moved in our new house!!! (I'll share pics later!) And I have finally stopped running around like a chicken with my head cut off long enough to get started on my SEWING ROOM! YAY! I have been searching online for sewing room ideas and the one room that gave me true inspiration is this little gem:

Needless to say, I have a long way to go. But I just love the colors and cheerfulness of the room, and of course, I love how it reminds me of the 50's era. Reminds me of my great-Grandmother :)

So, I was perusing my way through Lowe's paint department the other day, waiting on the Hub and my Mother in law who was visiting (little did I know, she was picking out a housewarming gift for me

The Bissell Steam and Sweep Hard Floor Cleaner! Which I LOOOOOOVE so much! And needed even worse! Yeah, my dream come true, hardwood floors THROUGHOUT my house and nightmare in cleaning them! ;)

But I love this little machinery. It works GREAT and she even bought me a few extra cleaning pads! I love how with the steam cleaners you can just throw the pads in the washer! YAY! HALLELUJAH!

She also bought me a lovely knockout rose bush for one of my front beds and gave me some pointers on rose care. Which is great because I am pretty sure my Mother in law is the Rose Queen. I mean she has full healthy rose bushes all over her yard!

Where was I??? oh yeah. So, meanwhile waiting in the paint department of Lowe's and I got a little curious to see what miss colors in paint they have. If you don't know about this area, ask the paint guy. SERIOUSLY.

So I am looking in there and what do my eyes come upon but THE color I needed for my sewing room! YAY! And here's the kicker. Originally, this gallon of paint was $26. Yeah. I got it for (drumroll please) $5. yep. I spent $5 to paint my sewing room. Oh but wait, I didn't paint it!

My hero
came swooping down and began painting furiously.
I am totally in *LOVE* with this color and the man also makes my little heart go "pitter-pat", especially when he's being this adorable!

I kind of miss this now that it's been painted over but at least every time I look at that wall I will remember that little message and smile :)
And this is the other man in my life, being naughty. Yep, he was trying to play in the paint. Stinker. :)
So that is all I got for you, for now.

What do you think of the color? Any great storage ideas you would like to give me?

Today, I spent the day organizing my room, and my husband picked me up a few (large furniture) pieces that will be shown soon I promise!
Until next time!

  1. I saw this post and thought that stinker she got the perfect sewing room before me-lol!! It probably will be pretty amazing though especially since you have the Jonah on a painting mission and FURNITURE. I can't wait to see already!!

    How did you get the paint for $5? Awesome.

    Yep hardwood floors are great. Then, NOT so great, but great score on the Bissell cleaner;) I may have to check into one of those sooon.

    Josh bought a knockout bush too! We are thinking of getting a couple more to fill in the back fence area. They are real hardy as your MIL probably mentioned.

    Glad to see you back in bloggy world!!
