Some finished projects...

I still daydream a lot about my future craftroom :p...going at it one small step at a time. I've shown in my recent posts the change I've made from a bulky double bed to a sleek sofabed, that is the big step. The other big steps require big spending too, so for now I'm just glad I accomplished something.
I've also done some handyman jobs on the sewing tabletop and the working table. I reused the top of an old table and screwed it on the remaining metal frame of the old sewing machine. I also bought fake leather to (temporarily) cover the unfinished top of the working table, tacking it in with a staple gun. My hands and arms got a bit sore, but I got the job done ;)

(Office Chair: Homeworks, P1,500.)

Best of all, I was able to buy a comfy office chair! Now I can roll it around the reclaimed (6 ft x 4 ft) space of my room...hehe ;)

I also managed to crochet some items, showing on my next post :)


  1. Congratulations Mimi for all the home improvements! I like orange, it lifts you up! Very good job!

  2. Thank you Vik :)))

  3. I love what you've done with your table! :)

  4. Thank you Catyanna! It looked so neat, then after a few days it was all cluttered up again...hehe

  5. Everything's looking good, Mimi. You did a great job on the sewing table. And your chair looks nice. I know what you mean about it getting cluttered. I just cleaned my room up and I'm not allowing myself to go back in there so I mess it up again. :P

  6. Thanks Tina :)) I should make myself a rule that only one table in the house gets to be cluttered ;)

  7. I'm so happy for you.. this is something that I dream too.. my own craft room.. where I can have a few hours a day for myself.. making cute items :) however, I think that dream of mine can wait.. maybe later when my child is big enough :)

  8. Hi Bheng, you'll find the right time too, at the same time enjoy your baby. Meanwhile, just keep things organized so ideas will flow easily.
    It took a very long time for me to do something about my many possibilities, and only now that I really acted on it.
