Sewing room reveal!

After my last post I was knee deep in decorating, overseeing carpet laying and furniture building.  I am now pleased to be able to show you the 'ta-da' photos of my finished sewing room!

This is a photo I've taken with the panoramic setting.  To the left is the door (you can just make out my pretty Cath Kinston door knob), and on the right are sliding mirrored wardrobe doors - these house all my fabric.  (The ironing board is only up when I'm sewing as the room is a bit narrow to have it up all the time.) I've always wanted a lovely big bookcase to store all my bits and pieces, and now I have a white 'Billy' from IKEA.  And the desk right under the window.  It's perfect! So big and space for everything I need - sewing machine, and cutting mat, and still room to spare.

How's that for a view? So peaceful, birds fluttering from tree to tree, the sun shines through here all day too!

Here's a closer look at the IKEA Billy bookshelf (doors on the bottom shelves) which holds lists of crafting things - scrapbooking and paper crafts at the top, and packaging essentials at the bottom.  Inside the cupboard are all the not so pretty things that didn't quite make the cut to being on display!

Maximising wall space in here with a couple of wall shelves and these fab rails with baskets underneath (I think they're from IKEA kitchen department).

To the right of my desk, maximising wall space again with a pin board and another rail with hanging basket.  Love this pretty little corner with Mr blue bunny and my gorgeous pastel pink Tulips.

Another day and some more lovely blooms on my windowsill.

Here's a closer look at the Cath Kidston door knob I mentioned.  I got this from E-bay, it's decoupatched with CK papers.  I have a slightly different (but matching) one on the other side of the door.

New sewing room warranted a new, pretty ironing board cover.  This one was a bargain from B & M - at just £2.99!

I also managed to grab one of these cute DAB radios from Aldi last week.

Everything looks so pretty and inspiring in here!  I seem to have a 'thing' for wire baskets and this white one is a new one I bought recently from TKMaxx - I knew it'd be perfect for displaying some pretty wool in.

Coffee break at my new desk!

More wall space used well with a lovely magnet board - this was just a plain board that we've covered with some wallpaper that was left over.  I love everything being so light in this room!  These love heart magnets were some that I was lucky enough to win in a giveaway from Spry Ceramics over on Instagram.  There's an Etsy store here.  (PS I just *love* this photo of Joshua - just look at those luscious locks! They're long gone now - this pic was taken on Shaldon beach, Devon, 2014).

I'm loving my sewing space and find inspiration is flowing, my fabric is all so easily at hand in these great wire drawers (IKEA again!).

Everything seems to look great in this room and the creative juices are flowing! The light is just perfect and the fabrics really seem to come alive. I can't wait to get stuck in!

And one last pic of my fav little corner - and some *more* pretty  Tulips!

Hope you have enjoyed your little tour of my new sewing space :)
