    No wonder why you were gone so long. What a job. What a great "play" room. I would get that fridge, and microwave and stay there forever.

    What a wonderful space. I don't know where to start....but the smallest things jump out at me and I love it!!!!! Your thread hanging on the door is so nice. I also love your sense of humor. What a great post.....Mission Organization is my favorite posting category on QB because it's so inspirational to me. I use 2 former bedrooms vacated by daughters leaving home, going to college and marrying. One is strictly for my fabric...the other to sew in. But I can't seem to get either room to look like what I see others doing here. I just have metal shelving in my "fabric pantry". They are parked around all four walls and I still need shelving in the middle of the floor as well. My sewing room houses my trusty old Bernina that I piece and sew clothes on, my Husqvarna Sapphire I quilt on, a serger and a Future embroidery machine. But none of my tables or furniture match so it's a hodgepodge to look at----functional but not appealing. Both rooms are kind of small...the first about 10 by 14 and the other 13 by 13---- both have yucky, fake-wood paneling for 35+ years ago. I've thought about painting everything---walls and furniture but the thought of emptying the rooms and removing all that fabric is such a daunting task. Any ideas from ne would be greatly appreciated. Hmmmmm....maybe I should have started my own thread for this----sorry if I've broken a rule. Anyway----what a great post! Your room is wonderful!

    Yes, we did build the shelving units. They are 83" tall, by 41.5" wide. Each shelf is 40" wide by 11.25" deep (we bought 1 X 12 X 10' boards and cut them into 3 equal lengths for the shelves). There are three units side by side with 9 shelves each. The top 3 are spaced 5.5" apart, just enough space for my fat quarters to go in their shoe boxes and pull in and out of the shelves easily. Then the rest of the shelves were just spaced evenly (more or less, don't get out your slide rule) down the length. It was a bit of work, but I love my shelves!

    I would consider emptying the rooms and painting for two reasons. First, if the walls a very dark and you paint a lighter color, you will have MUCH better lighting to work by. Second, it will almost force you to take the time to go through your stash and weed stuff out, to think about your organization system. You've already been using the space for a while, so you know what you like and don't like about the way you've got it set up. And while you're at it, paint that mismatched furniture. All my pieces started out different colors as most were hand-me-downs and thrift store specials. It makes the space feel so much more put together to have just one or two colors going on. But I do agree, it is a HUGE undertaking!!

    So awesome. You did a great job. Have been working on my mess. I know it grows while I am not looking. Just very overwhelming. You have inspired me - it can be done!
    Quilting makes my day!
