Having lived in our house for six years, I recently decided to convert the very underused spare bedroom into a space of my own. Somewhere for me to sew, craft, write and overall, be creative.
This decision means that any visitors have to sleep on a blow up mattress, however, this is a small price to pay for me having my own piece of real estate that I can indulge my creative impulses in.
We had never got round to decorating the room, leaving it a sickly pink colour, leftover from the previous owners. The colour not offensive enough to warrant an immediate repaint, didn’t ever fit in with the rest of the house, so I was pleased to finally be rid of it. I chose a cream and duck egg blue colour scheme and the room immediately feels fresher and more inspiring.
I also managed to bag a bargain in the form of a double drop leaf table that I bought for £15 in a local second hand shop. It is perfect for cutting out patterns and using my sewing machine and overlocker on, along with being a great writing desk.
So, I’m all set up for my crafty adventures – next stop, to buy a new laptop! My previous post explains just how important this is (she says, in no way trying to justify her spending to the rest of the world…)
