    We nearly made a murphy bed for the room, would have been behind my black design wall. However the hardware to make such a thing is so expensive that I decided to get a double height aero bed. The only time we had someone spend the night on it, she was amazed how comfortable it was. The best part, when she left, the bed air was pumped out and it rolls up into a pillowcase and stores inside one of the closets. (:

    I have a 6 foot table with the Singer on one end, and the cutting mat on the other. The wall has pegboard and this is where I store scissors, rullers, etc. Directly over the table is a shelf with plastic boxes that have fabric. Next to the sewing machine is a metal shelf unit with more plastic boxes. This holds bobbins, templates, the scrap container and some other non-quilting items. The little ironing table is next to the 6ft one, and then there is the television. The room is not large, but I have the advantage of being in a group at church, and that is where I lay out, and pin my tops for quilting.

    Hi,

    Is the bed a twin size and if so you can take the plastic tables from Walmart and put over the bed and use that space to stack things on for storage. Then if you need to use the bed just take the table down. Just an idea.

    I did it in my spare bedroom, as the only one that comes and stay with us is my 9 year niece mabye once or twice a year.

    Have fun organizing your sewing room.

    Also buy the plastic storage boxes and they will slide under your bed, you be surprised how many you can put in that dead space.

    I also took the closet in the spare bedroom, took the rod out and put stackable plastic storage boxes in there. I have a rack that has shelves that pulls out so makes it nice also. I can just close the sliding doors on the closet and out of site.

    I got a wire rack from a hardware store that they were going to throw away. Wow, check out your stores as many times they have racks in the back and will just give them to you.

    Nice spinning racks also.

    My sewing room was oldest daughters bedroom. When she moved out because she was getting married, I took it over. I painted the walls a lovely butter cream yellow and accessorized with green plaid. Wedding canceled so she moved into the guest room. I have taken the doors off the closet and have shelving in there with bins. It was the perfect size until I got the long arm. It's a bit cramped now, but it's still my favorite room in the house. My daughters refer to it as "the black hole" because when I go in I lose all track of time. For Christmas my husband got me an IPod docking station with a really big clock, but I don't look at that, just enjoy having music in the room. If we ever move, it will have to be a house with a large rec room that I can have the long arm with full length bars.

Then he built a 6'x7' table with two sewing stations and drawers and cabinets underneath. I have an old wooden worktable that he got from a previous employer and someday I will refinish it for a cutting table. There are two nice windows, plus good lighting and even a ceiling fan. There's also satellite TV & a DVD player. If only the bathroom weren't at the other end of the house, I might never have to come out of there!
    sounds wonderful, do you have pics?

    I have a 30 x 40 building and just sold my long arm so now I have a big empty hole in the middle until I can get my hand quilting frames up.
