    Love your "L-shaped" table. I covered my table with self stick Velcro on the board, and sew-on Velcro on the fabric. Also made an opening in ea. side that overlaps so I have easier access or can remove a section if need be. Good luck! The curtain hides a lot of clutter. Your sewing space looks great.

    Love both of your spaces! As far as the rolling cart with the pullout drawers maybe you could make a cover for it too. Let's see if I can explain it simply. Make it a three sided slip cover that covers the back, both sides and the top. Then have a long flap in the front that extends from the top piece. When you don't want to use the drawers, pull down the flap that covers the front of all of those drawers. You could even put a cute little bow on each side to tie or make a little velcroed flap on each side to keep it shut. When you want to use it, flip up the flap and you can pull out any drawer. You could use some sewing themed fabric and even make the cover to match your skirt for your table. Hope this is clearer than mud!

    It looks great. I especially love the old sewing machine cabinet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place...the End Times.

My husband says it does not go with the room and I should get rid of it. hmm...need to think of a solution. I love the curtain rods! When I am making a quilt I can put up a flannel piece. I have clip on rings. I have to find out what I did with the other package I bought a while back.
    They have paint for plastic at WM and you could get a few cans and spray the drawers whatever color they have that you want for $10.
