My new workroom

When we bought our house at the end of 2003, one of the bedrooms had the oddest d├ęcor. It was painted white, but all over the walls were circles of varying sizes in dark blue. Two of the circles were almost a metre across.

This was the only picture we took of this room at the time we viewed the house.

When we moved here in 2004, my husband decided that he wanted this room as his "office". He never really used it very much, and over the years it became a dumping ground for all sort of things.

At the end of last year, I decided to put this room to good use, so with help, it was repainted in an attractive 'milk coffee' colour, and I had a new beige carpet laid. Then I hung pictures, and moved my sewing machines and their desk from the spare bedroom into this room.

So now I have an attractive workroom, with a sewing desk and table, and lots of storage space for all my craft materials.

This is my sewing corner. There is a pinboard on the right which is handy for keeping track of projects.
The cupboard on the left keeps all my materials out of sight.
I hung a lot of pictures, as I hate bare walls!

Behind my work table are bookshelves where some of my books are stored.
The cupboard on the right holds most of my needlework books.

I have a pleasant view from my window.
I think I have made a great improvement!
