    I finally have a quilt studio!

    I have been sewing in our basement laundry room for years but finally took over the bigger portion of our basement for a larger sewing area. I've been saving, planning, and researching for this for quite awhile. (I have loved looking at all the sewing rooms and storage ideas on this board and Pinterest!) I hired a contractor, had the cement walls insulated and drywalled, had custom cupboards built for all the supplies, and now I have a place where I love to spend time. I like the vinyl wood-look, peel and stick floor for easy clean up but I can't recommend this brand from Lowes -it doesn't want to stay stuck down! I love having storage cupboards with doors. It keeps the room looking neater especially since there is a family room at the other end of this room. (hopefully the pics will show up)

    Mgause - we are drooling over the potential for photos! Remember, don't preview the post or you will lose your photos and I find I have to resize my photos to a smaller size in order for them to post.

    Thanks Paulswalia. I did not know that the 'preview' would prevent photos. Now when I select the icon to Insert Image, I get the 'Insert Image' window but not the field to enter the name or the browse button. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am envious. I would so love to have cupboards. Still using plastic storage bins and the closet. After I complete a quilt it looks a cyclone went through the room. Takes about two days to clean up. Lovely job.

    Well worth the wait. Very jealous of the large space.
