Such a great space!!!!!
Such a great space!!!!!
Thanks! It is much better than when I started. I forgot to mention he made the thread stand too. He sure is handy to have around. He invented a knitting gadget so I can turn two skeins of yarn without tangling them -- I'm knitting two-at-a-time magic loop socks. He made it out of toilet plumbing products found at the hardware store. :thumbup: PCV tubes and wooden dowels and -- its hard to explain, lol!
What a sweet handy DH you have and clever too. Your sewing room looks so fresh and clean. Enjoy it.
Wonderful!! I just love looking at the thrift shops and clearance aisles for storage goodies for my sewing room. Have fun and stay creative.
It looks like a great room with everything you need close by. Isn't it wonderful to have a room? I remember all the years I sewed on the kitchen or DR table and had to put stuff away for dinner to happen! It makes you appreciate the simple things
yes, especially since I have no need for an office! If I had known I was going to be a sewing fanatic when we built the house I would have known about high outlets, a sewing counter, and storage, storage, storage ... :D
I am happy we've done so much to make it so pleasant to work in there now!
We lived in a one bedroom studio apartment for 8 months while this house was being built and my new sewing machine never even came out of the box, and I just started sewing about 2 years ago. Luckily, my "ebay special" Janome (new in the box) ended up being a great machine. I didn't even know what to look for in machines.
I hope some of my budget ideas help other people too. I had posted my extension table previously and have to admit I like the built in machine much better! Hubby made the "extension table" out of foam core and vinyl.
Nice sewing space. I wish my ironing board looked that good.
I updated my sewing space. We moved the file cabinet from under the counter. Now I have room for the serger, or can move it and put my other sewing machine there for company -- now I just need a sewing buddy.
The file cabinet drawers open towards the sewing cupboard, so I didn't lose all that storage in them.
There is plenty of room for a cutting mat between the machines:
We moved the file cabinet over by the desk, stained a nice piece of wood to put on top of it, now I have more desktop room too!
