First Post:Craft/Sewing Room - The Before Pictures
It's finally all done. The contractor finished a week ago today. I would have posted the final result earlier, but several "life" things got in the way (a migraine that lasted for days, I got a new computer and had to set it up, my daughter is home from university for spring break...you know, life. )
This is my family room. It was already finished by the builder when I moved in. The door is leading to the new room. I'm standing on the stairs taking this picture.
Family room, showing the window opening to the new room. The door that you can see through the window leads to the laundry room.

Looking in from the family room. The doors are, left to right, laundry room, corner closet and the full-sized closet. The white shelving between the two closets holds most of my scrapbooking paper pads. The wall that the ironing board is leaning against will be my design wall. I just have to get a curtain rod to hang on the top of that wall. I have curtain rings that have the clips on them, so that I will be able to push the flannel design wall to the left and behind the door when not in use. I'd like to hang some art on that wall.
My new (used - found on Kijiji for $350) Horn of America sewing table. New ones cost $1,400.
Right hand side counter top and cupboards.
Right hand side top cupboard doors open. I still have lots of space to fill up!
Middle of desk. I am going to get a higher bar-stool style chair to use here, as my office chair does not go up high enough to make it comfortable to work on scrapbooking. I usually stand here to cut fabric. The office chair is fine with the sewing table.
