Wow, I can't believe July 4th was the last time I posted anything here! Life has taken a few crazy turns since last I posted... So here is a brief run down of all that is happening...
My wife and I listed our house. We have had several lookers, but no offers yet. We find it funny that the feedback we are receiving is all positive, but they didn't like one thing or another about the house that they could have seen on the listing. For example, one couple indicated that they loved the house, but they would have to spend to much money carpeting the house because they really don't like hardwood floors. Then WHY did you come look at a house which clearly states, "Laminate Wood Floors Throughout!" Did they think we were kidding?
Another family came through and decided it was too small for their growing family of 5... Well DUH! 1,500 sq feet and 3 bedrooms should have told you that. Did they really need to come walk through the house?
Frustration aside, we are having an open house this weekend and we should see some traffic...
We also made an offer on a house! Woo Hoo! I am too excited, but we are dealing with a bank so response could take some time. This house has been on the market for a LONG time, it is in need of some pretty major repair, but if we get it, we will contract out most of the repairs and have it completely done by the time we move in.
Which brings me to my reason for posting today... I need some advice. When we move (whenever and wherever that may be) I will be getting a sewing space. It may be large, it may be small, but having a space where I can keep a sewing machine, iron board, and cutting table set up at all times was my only requirement for any house we looked at. If we get this house, the room will be 145 square feet, on the main floor of the house, with two large windows! (Now you all understand my excitement for THIS house!)
Here's my question. What color should I paint it? It will have an Oak Hard Wood floor and it will be open to the rest of the house, so it will be fully visible, which means I will have to keep it neat and somewhat clean, but I'll display my machines, etc. in there and our desk will reside in the room as well. It is also Oak. Oh, and I bought a white sewing machine table for "Lolita", my big Singer.
So, Give me ideas, help me design my sewing room... First step, Paint It. And if you have links or Pinterest Boards for Sewing Space Ideas, PLEASE SHARE!!
