Last weekend I painted this tallboy so I could put it into my sewing room to hold all my fabric and patterns. We had teal paint leftover from painting the Dining Room and I love all the colourful tallboys and dressers I keep seeing on Pinterest.
While it took me most of my sunday to sand this down and paint the inside and outside with 2 coats plus an extra coat on the top surface it was well worth the effort!
Here it is in place in my sewing room holding my machines. It doesn't have handles yet because I've never loved the handles that came with it and I can't bring myself to put them back on. I'm going to get little round wooden handles from Bunnings and maybe paint them black? Or maybe just keep them teal? What do you think?
So while we're in my sewing room want to look around?
I've moved my table over into the corner so I get the morning and afternoon light through either sets of windows.
And I have all my notions and books stored against the other wall lookin all neat and tidy.
And here's a pretty average photograph of one of my next projects. I've enrolled in a short course on upholstery so I'll be taking this chair apart and redoing it in some fabric that goes with my sewing room.
