Perhaps some Before and After shots would be in order. In the last post - And Sew On - I included photos of my sewing room from the Concrete Block Age, through to the Plywood Era. In this next segment, I will include pics from both those 'eras' through to the current look of my sewing room. Here we go.....
The older wall treatment - green walls with photographic trim - is seen in the photo above.
March 2013: The room has been cleared in preparation for painting the floor in the basement. The green wall will not survive this latest remodel: I covered it with taupe paint.
Beyond the beaded curtain is my sewing room.
Another Before shot - still looking north
And an After shot of the same area
Office area - barn wood partition wall hides water softener
'Watermelon wall' will soon be beige
The same area after the March 2013 painting frenzy! Notice the green wall is now beige, in the office area, to the right in this shot. I also covered the green that covered the wall behind the appliances.
The storage area behind the bookcases, at the north end of my sewing room
Before shot of sewing room, looking south, toward appliances and office area and doorway to ping pong room (Spring 2005)

The End (Yeh, right.)

And another thing: We recently wall-papered the walls in the sewing room, AND added Formica to the top of the old ping pong table....
Sorry about the mess; this table redo is a work in progress. The old yard sticks will be tacked around the edge of the table, to finish the edge and to be used for measuring as I sew.
