Little changes

I have not been sewing as much as I normally do this week. I usually grab my coffee, go to my various online drooling points and then head to my machine. I did do this little bit of sewing with the Cosmic Burst. Stars seems fitting :o) I will be finishing that project up this week.


On Monday, my vacuum started making a funny smell, YUCK!
Like something was burning so I stopped using it and went into the garage to look for my tool bag to take it apart to look for the issue.  I saw something I had forgotten about...a can of $5 Lowe's mystery paint! There has been much debate on the actual color of the paint. It is either gray, blue or purple. Whatever it is, we like it!

The vacuuming was quickly forgotten and I jumped right into the new project!


This is  laundry room that is just inside my side door, it is the room that everyone sees first when entering my home and it looks AWFUL!!!!! Blah...boring and may as well be the garage...

So for the past two days I have cleaned, rolled sprayed and this is how it turned out...

This is a side view from the little window. I made a chalkboard using a $7 clearance frame from Marshall's and Krylon chalkboard paint on the glass. The poppy prints were Target clearance for $12!

I sprayed the handles and hinges that were awful  to bring them up to date.



The finished {almost finished, I need a new sink and light fixture} laundry room!!!


Now that this is done or close enough to being done, I can go back to showing my Bernina some love!!!!!
