No, not a new make. That would be too much to expect.
Rather, it’s my new ‘sunny’ happy sewing room. ‘Sunny’ in quote because it’s actually not a sunny room, being north-facing in gloomy London. But the colors are certainly cheerful. Reminds me of sunny Mexico or Mediterranean.
Here it is with my new Horn Eclipse cabinet all set up. Well, sort of. I’m still trying to figure out where to place the overlocker for a comfortable serging. And wondering if I can squeeze an embroidery machine in there somehow. Not that I have one yet. But one can always dream…
Here it is with the cabinet closed…
It’s a shame that with all the furniture in place, my back-breaking paint work is all but covered up. That’s like 10 layers of color-wash and varnishes on the walls and ceilings!
The woodwork have been glazed over with cream-tinted clear varnish to remedy my mistake of getting paint a shade too dark.
I’ve since found out from the experts that when you choose a medium to dark shade on a paint color stripe card, you should go with a shade lighter than the one that you think you want from the card. That’s because when you go from a small swatch to a big wall, the color intensifies and it will appear darker than the small swatch you chose from.
But I quite like the end result anyway. It reminds me of rustic glazed tiles. Damn, now I feel like a margarita!
And here’s a reminder of my inspiration for this cheery color scheme…
OK, now I run out of excuse for not sewing.
