After making that grain sack table runner I was in the mood for sewing. I started working on a project for my master bedroom a few months ago, got part of the way finished, hit a snag then took a break from it. So the table runner got me back in the mood. When I'm facing a difficult sewing project I like to warm up with something simple to build my confidence up haha. I tell ya, sometimes I feel like I have to re-learn every thing about my sewing machine each time I use it!
So here's the teaser on what I've been working on.....
I have big plans for that bedroom that include redoing every thing except the floor covering, that will have to wait. Seriously, I haven't done a thing to make that room comfy and cozy in the three years since we moved here, other projects keep pushing it further and further down the list. But the time has come, I'm sick of looking at it and keeping the door shut so the uglies don't show. So I'll be showing you bits and pieces as I get them finished.
And just for fun, I found this picture of what our mobile home looked like when I first saw it....this is taken from the dining room looking into the kitchen. That far door you see on the upper left leads to our master bedroom, the ugly but soon to be pretty master bedroom.
And the same view in the pic below, closer to the kitchen, we removed that ridiculous counter that was closing every thing in.
See what I mean about white paint? It's darn near miraculous I tell ya, makes even laminate mobile home cabinets look awesome!
This is where the counter used to be, it feels so much larger now that it's gone.
Whenever I get bogged down on a project, like my master bedroom, I like to look back at how far we've actually come in transforming our home. It was in pretty rough shape when we got it, nothing structural, all cosmetic but whoa did it need a face lift! I hope to make some headway with the current sneak peek project and be able to share it with you by Thursday or Friday. I need to push myself so I'm setting that as a deadline.
