Welcome to Tuesday customer inspiration where I showcase something someone has purchased from Jubilee Furniture and how amazing it looks in their home - either exactly as it looked leaving the store, or, how it's been transformed into something even better!
Today's inspiration is from my sister, Peggy, who's a wonderful sewer and quilter. Her email cracked me up since she wrote it as if I didn't know anything much about her - but it's prefect for sharing with you, dear reader! Here it is:
Hello Susan! I wanted to share my photos of my re-done sewing room. As you know, I saw this bathroom cabinet at Jubilee and mentioned to my daughter that it would make a nice cutting space for my sewing room. I enjoy making quilts and that involves a lot of rotary cutting - which I have been doing mainly on the FLOOR - on my knees, bending over the cutting mat - not very good for my back. There was a very large stone slab on top of the cabinet. While it did not fit exactly and was less than lovely, the weight and added height to the cabinet was a plus. Jessica said she would buy me it for my birthday - for the bargain price of $35. I was in Menard's and saw a very similar cabinet for $199. Anyway - I absolutely love the higher height for cutting my fabric. My 24 x 36 inch cutting mat is just a tad larger than the top but is working out well. I love having items handy in the drawers close by - I went through my whole room organizing and throwing out stuff - it was a long process, but I'm including views of my whole sewing space - a space I love spending time in! I will be looking at Jubilee for a small chair to add to my room - and who knows what other treasures I will find? Thanks to Jessica for my great birthday present - and to my husband for getting it up the stairs! See you soon - Love, Peggy
A couple of weeks later:
Jim now has a place to sit when he stops by my sewing room! This chair was purchased at Jubilee - in pristine condition - all I did was add a "quilt-y" touch - and, for now, I think my room is complete! Thank you, Jubilee Furniture!
Wow - I love Peggy's sewing room! It's bright and cheerful and inviting and I can see why she enjoys spending time in it! How she got all of Mom's sewing talent - I don't understand and it doesn't seem entirely fair!
Oh well, I got Mom's ...wide hips for ease in child birth? Sorry - super bad mental image - it's just my daughter, Abby, turns 23 tomorrow and I've been thinking a lot about the day she was born!
Come on - sing with me! "Memories, light the corners of my mind. Misty watercolor memories..."
