...in the studio transformation, that is!
I have converted a painted "feature" into a design wall.
It used to look like this
Ghastly deep pink, light-absorbing paint with fetching white plaster specks where the darts mysteriously missed the dart board AND the pinboard surround.
The girls standing in front really couldn't hope to hide the whole sorry mess.
But, now it looks like this:
Remaining plaster covered by more pinboard,
(thank you Richard)
which was then covered by calico...
and finished off by this fabulous fabric from the Dreaded Spotlight,
Cut as a panel along one selvedge :)
I have enough left over to make a couple of cushions for the couch and cover a small op shop footstool.
Completed design wall is almost 2m x 2m so there is plenty of room for playing with quilt block designs, experimenting with colours and fabrics, creating inspiration layouts and displaying special mementos :)
There are two more of these plaster panels along that wall, they will be painted after Christmas a lovely warm white which will hopefully help to brighten this room.
The timber panelling is gorgeous, but unfortunately tends to absorb light.
I am very lucky to have this large room for my textile activities, and even though the kids
have complained that my next step must surely be world domination they are happy
to share the space with me, occasionally watching TV, sewing or curled up on
the couch reading while I work.
Cheers for now,
