    I think that's a great idea! I would do exactly the same thing, we never use the living room. The only reason I don't is the master bedroom is in the front of the house too, I do most of my sewing at night and stay up pretty late, the noise would keep my DH awake.
    Chocolate is the Answer. Who cares what the question is.

    I think that it's a great idea, you will be so much happier with the larger space to sew and create!

    Go for it...You don't have to share your space with anyone but yourself.....That is what is nice about living alone....

    My DH & I have talked about needing more space & I've already told him that I do want a sewing room to store fabric, tools, etc., but that I will always be happier in the same room as him so we can talk whenever we want to & I can hear the TV. I don't watch it much, but I listen sometimes! Have a wonderful time making your sewing room in your livingroom!! I say it's the best of all worlds! Go for it!! :-)

    I totally agree with BeckyB. Your home is your "world" so do whatever works for you in it.

    If I had my own place I would totally do this! I spend most of my extra time in my craft room. He goes to be a lot earlier than I do so I am on my own most of the evening. He would have a coniption fit if I turned the living room into a studio! But, if I had my own place I would do it in a heartbeat!

    i live in a one bedroom apt, with a good sized den which I have setup for my sewing room and a couple of months ago I have dish network come out and move the tv from the bedroom to the sewing room. Now I seldom have the big tv in the livingroom on or spend much time in the livingroom. Sounds like a great idea to me.

    My hubby and I are both crafters/sewers, etc. We have often talked about making the upstairs master bedroom into a combined "play" area. We have a bedroom downstairs that was formally our master, so we know our stuff will fit without issue. We are still toying with the idea!

The Formal living room is the largest room in the house, and my sewing room is the smallest. Makes sense to me.
    I DID IT!!!! I have transformed the den into my sewing room. It is still a mess, while I figure out where to put stuff. DH has promised to find a screen/divider to block the view from the doorway, so visitors don't have to see my mess when they come into the house. Okay, I admit, my sewing area is usually messy.
