My new designer entryway

This week my darling husband finally had a chance to stop off at the board store on his way home from work and pick me up a couple of sheets of foam insulation. Yay! brownie points for the husband! I've been wanting to make a design wall from these for a long time. Even though I have been nagging him for some time about this task, I wasn't quite prepared with a place to house said design wall. My office is currently piled high with all the stuff that doesn't quite have its own home, and someday, it really wants to become a sewing room. REALLY! But that is a whole other project. There just isn't room in there right now. So for now the design wall is gracing the entry way/dining room. It is not so out of place though. This space also currently has my work table and a table with my sewing machine and an ironing board just inside the front door and tools and fabric and... Sounds welcoming, doesn't it? Anyone who comes by already knows I'm quilting-obsessed, so it is probably not terribly surprising. And if they don't know this about me, they will shortly after arriving!

Interior designers may cringe, but I think the pinky/lavenderish foam adds a nice contrast to the red walls.

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I will go pin fabric to my wall. **grin**

  1. LOL! I understand about being thrilled to have a design wall. It makes you feel like you have "arrived" as a quilt DESIGNER.
