At the mo I'm living in the old master bedroom of my parents house, which (lucky me!) has two wardrobes. One I use for clothes, the other tends to be spewing with junk (read: old clothes, bags & shoes I never use). Yesterday I got allllll the clothes out of the spare wardrobe & took most of it down the road to the city mission op shop. I got home to my empty wardrobe & had a brainwave: Sewing corner!!!

SO after many hours of sorting, chucking, dragging, sawing & rearranging, I present my little sewing cupboard. It's rather, umm, how do I say.. shabby chic?

Let me know what you think and if you have any brill ideas for it please let me know! Also, I think it's deserving of a catchy name & name plaque. Ideas??

'So welcome to my little corner of the world'

It's all reflecty...

Beautiful buttons & books

It's a mood board. Lovin' it!

Luckily there's plenty of space for all those 'work in progress' garments...

Patterns kept in my great-grandpa's old money box

Colourful cotton

And to finish

Eeep! I can't wait to use it!!

I love it! What a good idea, a very inspiring sewing corner indeed Smiley

And I must say I love your great-grandpa's old money box!

I love it, it's a great little space to tuck into and if your anything like me, those doors must come in handy to hide *cough* the current projects. ^^

That is an idea I love. Just close the doors and everything looks tidied up!

I love your desk, your moodboard, the vintage books and boxes, it seems that you have awsome taste! Cheesy

I have been seriously ill. I will get back to everyone to finish up all swaps and stuff. I am home now.

Looks great you should put some peg board or shelves on the back wall for storage and you could also use the inside of the doors for storage also.
