    I think I would go to Menard's or another cheaper building place and see if they have 4 ft countertops for sale (here they are about $10 for 1) and have it setting where you have the tv trays. get some type of legs that can be attached underneath and you are good to go for a sturdier sewing space.

    Hi

    I am so happy for you! It's nice to have a space you can call your own.

    I HAD a spot until my accident last summer where I came close to loosing my left hand! Now that things are working again, it is time I go re-claim my space!

    Enjoy your space and your time in your space!

It's $24. I'm thinking of buying one if I can't find something cheaper used. You might want to look at it. You could put plastic drawers under it for storage.
    I got one that sounds like this and am happy with it. It's heavy duty plastic so easy to clean if you have to store in garage/shed. also, I have the plastic drawers on wheels, but mine is a little taller and has narrower sized drawers at the top which come in very handy. Like your space! I need the cover for machine like you have to keep dust out.

    I have thought about getting one of those tables to use in the living room, handwork, trimming blocks, using a hand crank machine to do paper piecing. But, are they stable? Would it shake and rattle? It would be so handy and convenient.

    It looks quite cozy!!

    We when we moved into our current house three years ago. My husband picked the larger of the two extra bedrooms for my sewing room. Since I acquired a Long arm frame my sewing room has taken over the spare bedroom "aka the cat's bedroom"......lol

    I am so impressed by all of you who can make such incredible use of small spaces. I am more the spread out kind of person. My sewing space in the basement is so cramped and unworkable for me that i am moving it to the patio. literally! we will have ground breaking on the new room very soon. it will be 20 by 30 feet and include two office/computer spaces (one for me and one for him) and it will also have a sitting area and tons of space for my new "studio" i will be blogging it as it happens for those who are interested.
