My incredible wonderful hubby helped me create my dream sewing space!! I am thrilled with the results! He built my cutting table which is now the perfect height for me. I no longer have to lean down for cutting tasks. I have a very sensitive lower back so leaning over for me even a teeny bit is very painful and brings a screeching halt to my days' work in my sewing room. My drawer units are repurposed, I used to have them stacked on top of each other. Now, there is one on each side of my cutting table holding all my supplies, patterns, notions etc etc. The table top is framed by a nice edging which no longer allows my marking pens to roll off the table! YAY!! It is 4 ft by 5 ft.
My Sewing table is 11 ft long with 4 drawer units from Ikea. They are the Alex drawer units. The table top is 2 tabletops from Ikea, all pre finished. They worked perfectly on top of the drawer units!! The sewing table is pretty close to the perfect height. It allows me to move a machine or two and work on my quilts when I am quilting them. I LOVE the drawer units!
A big bonus was choosing to go with all white. My old sewing tables were dark walnut finish. I was so amazed when I sat down to my white sewing table.. it reflects the light from my window so I benefit twice from my window....if that makes sense!
I only have to re paint the walls and put up some shelves for my doll collection and I am totally done! I couldn't be more thrilled and... I have the most awesome incredible wonderful hubby in the world... even before he created my dream sewing space!! ♥♥♥
