Remember when I made my new ironing station....I was so proud of my mad handyman skills....I couldn't wait to use my staple gun again...
Thanks to an extra board and unwanted home decor fabric from my friend Heather, I
made a desk for my daughter have a different ironing board!
The photo was taken with my cell phone (as you can tell my SLR is on the board) and doesn't do justice to my favorite blue color coordinated with striped fabric.
I absolutely love having the extra work/ironing space and thought of making a desk for my daughter's room with the second board, but once I saw the blue I realized this would work better in my studio....it matches my new mini quilt!
So now, the Amy-Butler-fabric-covered table is in my daughter's room and will be made into a desk. We picked out a pair of storage units from IKEA to serve as the base...still waiting on those...out of stock....in the meantime two barstools are doing the job.
In keeping with the Amy Butler theme, I quilted this orphan spiderweb block that had been hanging out on my design wall to go in my daughter's room as well.
I have quite a few Amy Butler orphan blocks, and I think I'll make one of these memo boards.
I love this backing fabric. As you can see, I just zigzag stitched around the edges rather than use binding.
I also moved into my daughter's room two other mini quilts that were in my studio.
This was my daughter's first trip to IKEA, and she was overwhelmed (in a good way)! We had lunch in the cafeteria before shopping to plan our strategy, and this was the first thing we saw as we walked into the showroom! How cool is this sewing area?!
Ally wanted her picture taken in several of her "favorite" rooms. We ended up with quite a few accessories (and more than a few ideas) including this pink chair (that I put together all by myself).
Just like all my other projects....this one is a WIP!
