Well, it's not a Financial District sky scraper, but it will do for now.
This is the future home of Swell Cloth, my little online fabric shop. I am thrilled with how the space - the attic over my garage - is turning out.
The entrance is through the master bedroom. The upstairs secluded location will keep me from being with the family activities downstairs... um... well, somedays that isn't such a bad thing! All you moms out there can relate, right?
To me, the sloping ceiling and square window are very sweet and will make a cozy, inviting space for my personal and business projects. I can already see the bolts and bolts of cheerful fabric lining the long walls, which I'm planning to paint a neutral beige. The floors are going to be a dark wood laminate with white trim and molding.
I've gathered some decor ideas on Pinterest, where you can follow me as Swell Cloth, in a board called Dream Sewing Studio. Would love to connect with you on that site too!
My husband is planning to paint the attic this afternoon. Flooring should go down this weekend, followed by the trim. Then, it will be time to move in and close the door on this home reno project.
