Hey y’all. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I spent a crazy 24 hours moving my sewing studio on New Year’s Day. I finally have the pictures of the new sewing room ready to share. This is going to be a picture heavy and word short post.
BTW, if you don’t remember my old studio, I show it in this post. And there was nothing wrong with it space wise. But I moved for a few reasons. First, this room was designed as the formal living room in our house. So it was the first thing you see when you walk in. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but we had run into issues with playdates and other children not knowing to leave things alone in there (I have mine well-trained). So moving upstairs gave me a door to shut.
But the primary reason was light and temperature. The old studio is the coldest room in our house, being on the north corner, and also the shadiest – it never gets any direct sunlight between the oak trees out front and the neighbor’s house on the side. The room I moved to is south facing and above the tree line – which means it gets great light and it’s warmer. And since I’m cold natured and constantly taking blog photos, that is a big deal to me. Plus I painted the new sewing room white, which also helps bounce all the light around.
Here’s what the room looked like before – except all those boxes were inside the closet. I didn’t take a picture until after the hubs had started moving boxes out. Whoops. But you can see it was basically an office/library/workout room.
And cleared out. A pretty green (we painted it this color when we moved in 10 years ago) but not the white I wanted.
And now it looks like this.

And in case you’re wondering what happened to the old studio, well it’s a library/office/playroom now.
