Project Creep

When you start the project of replacing the sewing room floor...

Ripping up carpet

 But then have to investigate water damage to the sub-floor...

And end up needing to repaint the walls, so then you might as well fix the ceiling paint while you're at it.  And as long as the molding is off you might as well refinish it...

My sewing room's wonderful new floor!

...That's called project creep.

We're getting closer though.  The floor is done.  Hopefully I'll be reporting from my new studio next week!

Linking up with WiP Wednesday.


  1. Sorry to hear about all the extra steps in replacing your floor. It looks really great and like it was worth all the extra hassle it brought.

  2. Wow, the after picture of the floor is fab! A nice and clean room just for sewing!

  3. Ooooh that floor is gorgeous!! I would love that for my sewing room.

  4. Oh, we've had projects like that, too (and too often!). It's good you found the problem of the water damage and the floor looks gorgeous. It will be a beautiful sewing room!

  5. Better to discover and deal - that is going to be so nice when it's all done. BTW: when I saw the thumbnail on WIP it looked like a low volume quilt project :)

  6. Looking good and you are going to be so happy with your "new" room!
