The Sewing/Craft Room Window

My sewing/craft room is very small.  It’s only 6′ x 7′.  Everything in the room is small, including the window.  But it’s one of the first things that I see when I walk into the room.  The walls are white, but because of that little window, when the sun shines in, I have a lilac glow through the whole room.  And on a sunny day, I have rainbows dancing on the walls.  I thought I’d invite you in to my little sanctuary to see part of my little piece of Heaven.

Welcome to Creatively Sam’s:

This is the tiny window in my sewing/craft room.

I wanted to add some privacy, but I needed the sun to shine in.  I chose to make a lace curtain with an open pattern.  I only used one panel because I didn’t want folds to block the sunlight.

Then I made curtains and a valance from Lilac Satin.

I added Curtain Tie Backs to keep the curtains open so the sun can shine through.  (I’ll be doing a tutorial on how I made them)

So that I could have the rainbows dancing in the room, I added a white tension bar. (I painted the brass that was on it with acrylic paint)  From the tension bar, I strung crystals from fishing line.  They seem to hang in mid-air.

I been fascinated by the rainbows that come from crystals since I was a kid & saw the Disney movie Pollyanna. (that movie had a great impact on me)  They put me in a creative mood & bring me such an inner peace.

Hope you enjoyed the first glimpse into my new Sewing/Craft Room.
