WOYWW....

Hello all.  I know you've called by to see what's on my desk this week but I have to say it's been a quiet one there for me with sewing because we have been busy elsewhere  :-)

My new sewing room is nearly finished....it just needs skirting boards and a few finishing touches.  The carpets will come at a later date.  So,  I'm guessing you would like a peep at what we've been doing?.....



All the bare plastered walls and ceiling had to have a covering of half/half paint and water first. Then the ceiling had another covering of white paint and....



.....so far the one long wall has had two coats of pale dusky pink paint [crem de la rose] ready to put up my new wall cupboards.



Sunday we payed a visit to Ikea and filled our trolley with new cupboards and work tops to go in my new room.

With a bit of careful loading we managed to get it all in the car.  :-)

Sadly when we got it all home we found that two out of the three wall cupboards were faulty and we had to have them replaced yesterday [but when the delivery men arrived with the two new replacement cupboards one of those was also faulty!....thankfully I checked before they left and we were able to swap the faulty side pieces so that we now have two complete cupboards :-) ].

All being well by the time you come back next week there will be new developments in my sewing room and before long I will be able to move in there and get busy creating [I guess there will be lots of boxes/bags emptied and sorted first].  :-) :-) :-)

Thanks for calling by.  Leave me a little message and I will pop over to yours ASAP.
Hugs,
Annie x

Yay you've moved on nicely Annie. Shame about the cupboards, that would have been frustrating. Looking forward to the next episode.
I've started the mammoth task of clearing out our office of all my hoarded stuff. It's not going well haha

It will soon be all spick and span - you are doing a great job. x Jo

Lisca Meijer said...

Wow! That's going fast now! And you're having new furniture too! Lucky lady. What a pain to have to drive to Ikea only to go back again.Our nearest Ikea is past Malaga which is 4 hours drive away. So we don't do that, I have cabinets made by the local carpenter and save myself the petrol and the hassle.
It's now really getting exciting and I can't wait to see next week's photos when it is all done.
Have a good week,
Lisca#17

Wow, it's looking great! I can't believe how quickly it all seems to have come together :-). The dusky oink colour is beautiful, a soft and warm tone. You're going to be so happy in there :-)

So much progress! Glad the cupboard debacle ended up okay and I imagine they are installed by now. The color sound wonderful, perfect for a sewing room. looking forward to seeing how it looks this time next week.

Diana Taylor said...

Wow, it's looking great - I bet you can't wait to get the furniture in. I had the same problem with my Ikea shelf units for the studio - eventually we made up one good set of shelves from three faulty ones! I hope you have an enjoyable week setting everything up!

Bet you can't wait for that sewing room! How FRUSTRATING with the Flat Pack furniure.Mt hubby hates it.I go into the garden and find something to do out there when he's putting it together!!He's usually a placid man, but show him some flat pack furniture and he turns into Mr. Aggro!!

Ah Annie it's coming on so well. Looking forward to seeing it. Bet you're bursting to get in there, move all your kit in and get sewing! I hope you had a 'men at work' sign out while Dod was up that ladder! He's such a star! Happy crafting / decorating, Max #24

After waiting so long for all this to happen, it appears your new sewing room will soon be complete. It already looks like it's taking shape nicely. Not playing this week, but wanted to stop by and say HI!!

Hello Annie - how exciting for you! The creme de la rose sounds a lovely colour. How exasperating that you had problems with the cupboards! Glad you sorted it! Can't wait to see it finished! Anne x #7

Angela Radford said...

Hi Annie, good luck with the new cupboards. Seeing your car with all that stuff in the back brought back some memories of when we did the kitchen in our first house but that's another story. Will definitely post the finished cartoons. Have a good woyww and happy crafting, Angela x22

Looking forward to seeing your new space and Shane about all those units being faulty and you checked before the delivery left then at least you saved waiting again for a new one hugs Nikki 5

Neet said...

Well, I for one cannot wait to see this new sewing room of yours finished. We are being teased week after week with the lovely photos and I hope we get a virtual tour at the end. Exciting to me as well as you, I love seeing people's rooms.
