Creative Space Makeover {part 1}

I am SO excited to share part one of my {Creative Space Makeover} with you all! I worked really hard on Tuesday and got these first projects done. I just LOVE how everything turned out! It makes such a difference in the room! I can’t wait to get everything done and get back to work in my pretty new office! I have a few projects to finish up today while the little man is at school. Part two of the reveal will be next week so stay tuned!

Ok…here is this part of the room before and after!

and a few more shots of the details…

Framed Vintage Flour Sacks (I used this tute) I think I need to add a few more…

110_4845This pink basket holds all my current projects. Typically I will cut a bunch of things out at a time and they live in this basket until they are sewn. Huge timesaver for me! The rolling cart holds LOTS of fabric scrap organized by color.


Ahhhhhh. The aqua dresser. I could not love it more. It’s a little dresser from Ikea. Perfect for all my sewing bits and pieces.


I scored these yellow ceramic polka dot pulls from the always AMAZING Cost Plus World Market. Such a fun store!


Well, there you have it! That’s part one! I will be busy today working on finishing up a few more projects. It’s all coming together quite nicely if I do say so myself!

Have a happy day friends!
