Setting up my room

Here are some quick photos of my stuff as I move into my new room. To the left is a photo taken right inside the door. Right now just the bed and my craft area are semi-set up. I have all my little stuff moved over and setting in boxes still. I just have to get my furniture moved, and then I can set up the rest of the room. When you walk in, the livingroom area will be to the right, then the bedroom in the back, and the craft area to the left in the back. It's just a big open room, so I'll divide the areas with furniture.
First below, is a closer view of my bed, loaded up with too many pretty pillows that I have to take off and put back on the bed everyday. I have a shelf over the window with pink and green stuff, flowers and fairies. The 2nd photo is the livingroom area which right now consists of a chair, a table from my grandmom and a rug (couch to be moved in at a later date) The shelf over those windows have black and gold stuff, mostly Oriental figures and pierrots.




The photo on the right will be my craft and sewing area. I put down tile floor there, so it will be easier to clean up (hopefully) The big thing in the left side of the photo, and shown again below is a large Victorian drying rack for laundry. I'm using it as a room divider by draping some of my favorite fabrics and linens over it. I'll take better photos of some of the items after I get it more organized.


The room divider is meant to break up the large room, and to possibly camoflauge any messy projects that I might be working on. On the other side of the divider is my work table - right now just a cheap folding table with barkcloth on it to look pretty. I'm hoping to get a nice worktable with a work surface (I won't actually be doing any work on that fab fabric, it's just for show) The white bureau was picked from the Strathmere trash and painted white. It holds alot of junk, paints and craft supplies.


These two humpback trunks hold my laces and fabrics for my own use. The trunk below holds scraps of fabrics, laces and damaged vintage clothing for projects. Yep, there's that teddy making a return appearance in my blog. When I was carrying him to the new room, I thought this would be the perfect place for him. The trunk was in our house in Strathmere when we bought it. It's an oldie, it is dated 1850 inside. The lady that we bought our house from, Bertha, and her brother Harlan drew pictures of each other inside of the lid of this trunk when they were kids. It's a special piece.



That's it for now. I'll take some more photos when the furniture is moved and everything is in place and hung on the walls.

Wow Carol! Your space is just amazing! You've arranged it beautifully and I love the way it's divided up with different flooring and an imaginative furniture arrangment. Also you can never have enough cushions/pillows on your bed! It's what beds were made for!
