Oh my goodness what a beautiful room! I would add a twin mattress in one corner so I could be in there 24/7! Enjoy your new workspace! Looking at all that beautiful fabric and the way your space is designed is going to get your creative juices flowing :)


Pat Triska

That is a wonderful renovation. It is too bad that you will have to leave it soon,. I now wish I had your room for my sewing. You have done a fantastic job on all your building and sanding and painting. A+ is my grade for you!!!

Edith Songer

I'm so sorry that you have to move again. But do you REALLY have to refinish the rest of the basement in order to sell the house? I mean, YOU bought it as is and have made it miles better. I'm sure there are people who would buy it as it currently is. Maybe you could just finish the attached bathroom in the studio?
Save your life, Shelley!
And it's a beautiful studio, good work.

Beverly Atkins

A dream come true! Now I want to paint my 'craft/sewing/junk' room. I love your studio! Oh what I could get done in there - maybe! I'm so much like you. I just love starting the projects! Merry Christmas to you and your family. I look forward to seeing what the new year and your new studio will bring!


Thanks everybody! I do love to spend time in here, it's my little escape from "reality"! Edith, we're going to rent the house not sell it, so yes we have to. We'll likely be transferred back here so we're not selling. Besides, we bought it as a short sale ("as is" condition), and different rules apply...plus nobody knew about the bad wiring until we opened up the studio wall. Right now the power is off in that part of the basement, we can't expect the renters to not use a finished basement for 3 years. Ditto for the bathrooms. It has to be done, there's no way around it. But thanks for your concern...I'll manage to survive somehow, and hopefully my sanity will remain intact through it all! :-)

The blue that you chose is the perfect color. It really make the room feel light and airy. I also think the wood floors you chose are a great finish to make everything else "pop"


Amazing studio, I love it! You are going to have so much fun in there!!!

Sarah E.

I love this, it's beautiful... can you tell me what color the walls are?!

Josephine Puckett

I love watching kids playing with toys because for ten years now my husband and I have been waiting for that day when God gives us a child to care.

  • In short, I'm a wife, mother, artist, and creator of all sorts of things. I've categorized my creative endeavors into seven main areas, hence the 7 Layers; Textile/Pattern design, Sewing, Photography, Interior/Landscape design, Painting/Drawing, Monotypes/Printmaking, and Baking/Cake Decorating. There. I think that's 7(ish). You're welcome to use any of my ideas for personal use, but please do not copy and sell the things/ideas you see here without my permission. Thanks, and enjoy!
