Excuse the crappy photos. I'm not a photographer and I haven't the slightest idea on how to edit photos.
The wall colour is a much brighter aqua than the pictures depict. In the daylight it's like a robin's egg or Tiffany blue. It's bright and cheerful and I love it. HUGE thanks to Omz and Blair for their painting expertise!!
My cutting/blocking table with yarn swift and ball winder:
I would have liked a larger table but this one works just fine. It's from the Ikea Vika series. My blocking board is 51 x 33 and fits fine, it just hangs over the edge a little.
Billy bookcases for my yarn, fabric, and notions:
The doors make an otherwise cheap-looking bookcase look so much nicer! Plus, it protects my yarn from dust, curious cats, etc.
And finally, my computer/pressing/sewing area:
It looks cramped but it works for me. The press is an Elnapress Alizé. It's fairly new so I haven't had the chance to develop a strong opinion about it, but so far I'm enjoying its ease of use.
Yes, it's Ikea city in here but the stuff is just so practical and affordable. More $$$ for yarn!
Now I'm on the search for a chair and items to adorn the walls. It's cliché but I'd like an inspiration board over the workspace.
As for the chairs - I would like something different than the usual task chair. It also needs to be a fun colour; I think chartreuse would really pop and break up the monotony of the white furniture. I have it narrowed down to the Eames Molded Plastic Side Chair and Vitra Panton Chair.
Both come in the green I'm looking for. I love these midcentury chairs. W prefers the Eames but I'm leaning towards the Panton - something about its futuristic, yet classic look really draws me in.
