Who doesn’t dream of having their own studio, or library, or workplace to call their very own. A place where they can lay out all their projects, and return to them later on without a single thing being disturbed. Ahh, if only. But until then, one can make do with their very own corner! Much better than sharing the dining room table, of course. The funny thing though, is this happens to be my old dining room table. With our growing family, we thought it was due time for a larger table. So my Mom brought us a table she was no longer using, one that I actually sat at as a kid. (More on the new table later inshaAllah, still working on adding a few more chairs to it to make it complete.) So my old dining table became the new home for my sewing machine. Nice and roomy for sewing! I love being able to have my sewing machine plugged in all the time. A place where I can get right to work whenever I have a fancy to sew something. My chair is a find from the thrift store, a steal at only $3, and I recovered it with a bright and cheerful floral patterned fabric. Also, my wall art gallery is something I put up from necessity. I purposely placed the frames to cover cracks in the wall. Yup, we are renting our apartment, and of course the landlord can make repairs to the wall but it is really such a hassle for them to repair and then repaint, with kids in the house and all, and the toxic smells of the paint. So this is my current solution until one day in the summer possibly when I might spend a week or two at my Mom’s and they can come and do repairs. Anyways, long story short, this is my new corner studio, I may add a few things here or there, but I am smitten!
