The dilemma of the blue cupboard was solved by painting the pink shelves grey. I think this works so much better and means I could keep the blue. I used vintage wallpapers to cover the doors and the back of the shelves.
The crates have started to fill up with fabrics, books and cases.
The yellow cabinet has a few fabrics in too!
My little work station.
My prized Dottie Angel bunting. I think I was lucky to get this when I did as Tif is now busy writing a book and has little time to make things for her shop.
I couldn't resist these lovely antlers bought from Sophie at Fading Grace. My new dilemma is whether to do a makeover on them or to leave them as they are. The purist in me tells me to leave them whilst the crafty madam favours a makeover!
My little grey shelves are filling up with haberdashery and other nonsense. I can't resist a bit of kitsch!
Craft books and yarn.
I gave my Barsony lamp a new lampshade. This was a makover of a boring drum shade using some lovely 1950's fabric. It will do for now until I get an original Barsony lampshade. These are quite hard to find as I discovered that Ms Barsony hails from Australia and that the lampshades are pretty rare.
Jars of scraps and cotton reels are everywhere and my lovely 1940's sewing machine cover was a very cheap find from the Vintage Bazaar.
While I was at it, I tidied up the downstairs, which I have made up like a shop using my old shop fittings that were previously in the house. I keep all my fabric and haberdashery bits for my personal use in these cabinets.
One day, when the children are big, I hope to have my own shop, a place where people can come and visit. In the meantime I can just play!
Well there you have it. I hope you have enjoyed the tour and I would love to hear what you think.
Now I just need to make some crafty time for myself and enjoy the new space I have made. Pin It
