|Most of the clutter cleaned up before we moved stuff|
I had dreamed up a new layout when we were contemplating buying a larger unit very similar to our rental, so the brainstorming was already in play. I made a few adjustments, sent a few unneeded items to the garage for storage and "poof" the room was rearranged! Well with lots of help from my hubby, which without his help would not have been accomplished (I had pulled a nerve in my shoulder, while sleeping, the night before so could barely move my head let alone shift furniture) So HOORAY to my husband for all his hard work!
The great thing now is that the kids have a huge open area to play in the front of the great room where there is plenty of light and very little furniture & electronics in their way.
As you can see, the sewing area is already being put to good use, displaying all the projects I want to get accomplished within the next few weeks both for the house and for my online store Jolene Marie Designs. Already the Ottoman top is almost finished being re-padded and covered, and we have laid out the measurements for simple new drapes I get to sew up for the large window wall behind the TV.
Once the ottoman is done I'll show you its quick transformation and the progress of more projects that are in the making. And don't worry, I haven't forgot the red wicker charger project, still need to get those cork pieces cut and assembled. With this new arrangement I hope to work even more on my crafts and graphics, for I am so enjoying my new area and hope it last for months to come!
PS. Thank you Pink Chalk Fabrics and your "Where I Sew" article, for it inspired me to rearrange my great room, sooner rather then later. Now I have a really cute sewing/craft area that I'm proud to show off to everyone!
