Anyway, the changes....we got rid of the big round table, and replaced it with a second hand, 1960's rectangle table. It means, no wasted corners, all chairs are used now, and a vase of flowers(fake), sit looking very happy in the middle. So far, its kept clean and tidy, with only family meals and a bit of writing, done on it. I also hung up a vintage blind, as I can't have too many bare walls in my home.
Im sure you can see how a round table would have wasted our space.
The next simple change was my sewing table and sewing machine. I promised myself, that my new sewing space would stay neat, tidy and organised. This is not as easy as I thought. If my sewing table has anything more than a sewing machine and pin cushion, I will not go near it! A couple of days before tackling the sewing table, I decided to buy myself a new sewing machine. I love my old one, but it was getting harder to use and my stress while sewing was getting higher. This has been a great, great change! I had also thrifted rolls and rolls of Ezi Stick vintage paper, ready to cover anything! I decided to cover my table, giving my new modern sewing machine a bit of charm, as well as clearing the table in the process! Win! It meant I could then get sewing, and I made myself this dress.
I didn't realise how tricky this paper was..ignore the bubbles!
I also made some simple changes that I LOVE in our bedroom. I covered a wardrobe with the ezi stick, and it lifts my mood everytime I look at it!
I also took down our white curtains, and hung up some much nicer ones. The room is very pink, so Im trying to add as much other colour to help!
I also made a pompom garland to hang above our window, just to make this room even more lovely. Its one room that was left bare for a while, but now am slowly changing it, as I love the sunshine through the window and can see me sitting on the bed with a cup of tea and some craft on sunny afternoons now.
Do you like the changes? Has it given you any ideas for simple ways to change a room?
What are some things you've changed around your home that's made a big difference?
