- I am not planning to buy a new desk, and the old one I have is oak veneer (yuck) and I was planning to make a tablecloth/skirt thing to cover it. While the oppulent fabrics like silk and taffeta are gorgeous for windows, I feel like this would not breath very well when I am sitting at the desk for hours sewing. I would probably get very hot and wouldn't like this in the long run.
- The space might be overwhelmed with this oppulent look. I think I want the space to look a bit more relaxed.
- My bedroom at my mom's house was very shabby chic and floral. I still have a lot of those decor pieces and want to be able to utilize them.
The colors and look of this part of the movie will be my inspiration for the space.
The flowy fabrics, flowers, and colors are what I want to envoke in the room when it is done.
I am using my normal style of French Country and Shabby Chic. I plan to paint the walls blue. I purchased a bookshelf off Craigslist the other day and am in the process of fixing it up (another post coming soon). It will be painted creamy white and distressed. I have fabric on the way to make a chair cover for my oak desk chair, and to make a new ironing board cover and a dog bed for my sweet puppy. He likes to sit with me while I sew and feel so sad for him when I have to keep making him move off the fabric.
I am also planning to buy some white linen for the drapes and tablecloth, and I want to incorporate some glass knobs into a shelf and pull-backs for the drapes.
I also will buy some new accent pieces and eventually want a chair for when Thomas or Ashton hang out in there with me.
I would love a three tiered basket for storing my ribbon
I plan to make myself some fun little items for sewing eventually, like a ham, seam roll, and pin cushion.
It will be a work in progress for the time being, but I will keep you posted throughout. I am so excited!!!
