My Creative Space

Today I've been doing up my work space. I sew in a corner of the loungeroom and have a table, shelf and bit of a wall as my little space. It was quite a boring, ugly little space when I started, but I have been adding bits and pieces to it for a little while.

I've been wanting to cover and paint my table for ages and today was the day to start! I've got some green polka dot oilcloth that I bought to cover the table. I cut it out, popped it on the floor, flipped the table, stapled with the staple gun and ta-da!! All done!!!

It needs to be uncreased a bit, but this will happen with a bit of heat... I hope!!  I'm going to paint the legs white when the weather is a bit warmer.

The table before.... with lots of mess underneath

Half stapled

The help! (loose!)

My little sewing spot. My hubby put that shelf up for me recently and it's made such a difference!
