I got tired of the sewing at the kitchen table and then having to put it all away so I took out a set of bunk beds and set up a sewing area. And then when we need the extra bed, I put the design walls (one not pictured) across the desks and put one of the mattresses from one of the sofa beds on it and have another double bed. Its very cosy and when I am in the middle of a project, I can just pull the curtain across and leave it till I get back to it.
Also from here I can see the tv, out the front window and still talk with everyone in the living room. I can't wait till the next trip up to start a project.
