    AND make sure that the top surface can accomodate the large cutting mat. I love my mobile kitchen island!

    Thanks for all the good ideas! I ended up with an interim solution of moving everything into my bedroom. It's a big oversized bedroom with lots of space. I have a large computer desk that worked perfectly for my sewing machine and extension table. For now I'm going to make do with using the top of my low chest of drawers as a cutting surface. No fancy wheels, but it's a good height and surface. This gets it out of the dining room for now and working with it a bit may let me know better what I want.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. You've given me some great options to think about!

    And is you have a bed in the room, look for under bed drawers so you have storage that doesn't take up to much room. I like the first one but there are many option.

    Great ideas. Now off I go to check out the Mission section to see how others put them together. I have several in my sewing room already.....Even without wheels, I like this idea...

    I like those storage cubes. I might get some for my kitchen area to put the TV on.

    Just added one of the kitchen islands with wheels to my sewing room last week. Took my son over 4 hours to put it together. Got it from Bed Bath and Beyond with a coupon worth $60.00 off, so I was pleased. Very sturdy and has the locking wheels and the flip up top if needed. My special ironing board I use for quilts can be placed right on the top when needed. I plan on loving it. And I'm going to roll it over to my quilting area to support the quilts if I'm doing some free motion quilting. Sure helps with storage and organization too.
