This is my attempt at getting organized before jumping into a project. When redoing a room, I usually don't have a direction, but rather just collect things and ideas as I go.
Sometimes that works out fine, but more often what happens is...by the time I've gotten to the last elements, the first things collected no longer fit in.
So, with my sewing room/studio/office, I've put together a game plan. I've got a basic color scheme (wall and accent colors) that are built around fabric and accessories that I want in the room.
My main work surface is a vintage 40-50's enamel top kitchen table. It has cool red deco styling and the top folds open and rotates to make an even larger area if I need it.
That cute clipboard is from Jane's Apron. As you might be able to see, I don't have room to use my cordless mouse on my desk surface. So I've always used a clipboard to hold it in my lap. (Its also much easier on my shoulder to work this way.)
My old clipboard had seen better days and I was ready for a cute one. I had seen Julie's projects with vintage patterns on her blog and when I saw this one with the pink and red full skirt, I knew it was for me!
Like I said, this is the game plan. I'm sure some things may change before its completed, but at least I have a direction. :)
Now I just need to find a free week to put it in action.
