I posted a couple of weeks ago asking for advice about moving my sewing room to the basement. Well, over the weekend we did it. We first moved the treadmill to my husband's workshop, then moved all my sewing stuff downstairs. Got it semi-arranged, knowing there needed to be a LOT of storage. Then we went to my brother's for my nephew's birthday, and saw these amazing 'cubbies' that they had the kids' toys stored in--they got them at Ikea, so it was off to Ikea for us, since these would be PERFECT for a sewing room!
The ultimate plan is to replace the thin piece of carpet with something else--not sure what. And my DH is going to put in a 'real' ceiling, probably a drop ceiling with MORE lights.
Also, I have a wall hanging which should be coming back from the quilting lady SOON, so that will get hung up in the room too which will add color.
I'm going to post the pictures as 'before' and 'after'--before being the initial move of the sewing stuff, and after being once everything is in place and organized!
First picture--my table with machine.
AFTER we got new stuff:
The 'cutting table corner', before.
Cutting corner AFTER. I rotated the table to the other wall.
Storage corner, before.
Storage corner, after. These are fantastic for storage!
View from the doorway into the room.
My husband's workshop is through the door to the right of my book/fabric shelf.
Another shot of the cutting corner--put the dog bed in there for my dog.
In the above photo you can see a little of what's outside my room--our family room has double doors to outside, so it's not extremely 'basement-like'.
My crochet storage area--bottom is yarn, top shelf is thread (my favorite). I got a table top ironing board from Ikea so my regular ironing board doesn't take up floor space, and can stay upstairs for ironing hubby's shirts.
Thanks for taking a tour of my new sewing room! I love it!
