I can contain myself no longer!!!! Ever since I said "I cant say just yet but I am getting the most AWESOME'EST present for my birthday, I'm so excited about it I could throw up!! :) Its mega!!!" I have been bursting to tell you all!!!"

I'm getting a sewing room/studio! Arrrrrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhhh :) There I said it....

We had decided that we were going to re-lag all the loft to make the house warmer and more energy efficient....but when I came home on Friday my other half asked me how would I like it as a sewing room/studio. Well I was so excited I didn't know whether to throw up or squeal with delight! So it was the squealing :)

We have a really tall roof space which is ample room for a small studio.

The flooring is all down and the roof is in the process of being done.

The plan is to box off part of the bottom to create a bit more storage, add a sky light, plaster all the walls/ceiling, add spot lights, wallpaper the back wall, paint the others, carpet, add a desk, flat screen TV, chaise long.......and its all mine!!!!!
I cant wait, I'm beside myself with excitement. I will be showing the progress as we go a long, this is just the best birthday present ever!!!!! Isn't he lovely my fella :)

I'm now off to get some food, he's cooking me dinner too.....where on earth did I get him from?
P.S. If anyone knows of any good photo's of amazing studio spaces please post links I'd love some inspiration for decorating, thanks. x

  9. Oh, I am so green with envy!! You lucky thing, what a fab birthday present. I would so love my own sewing room, but with only 3 bedrooms, 2 kids and a loft full of junk it ain't gonna happen! I know I've seen some cool studios somewhere in blogland, if I find them I'll send them on.
