    sewing space

    My friend's DH made her a storage unit for her sewing area. She has half of a room; there is also a tall dresser and a full size bed. He used a bathroom vanity for under her cutting area and attached the other end of a piece of plywood to the wall using a cleat on the wall. He raised the vanity to cutting table height by adding feet and added a shelf underneath. Then he put in long shelves. She has a desk for her sewing machine.

    Sweet!! I would love to have walls! I sew in an attic room with slanted ceilings. Cozy...but it is not conducive to puttin shelves on the wall .

    Please tell us about those baskets. Are they the ones you can make from newspaper? Or are they like rag rugs that you braid. I like the looks of them.

    Thanks for sharing. I just love to see how others have organized their sewing rooms. The smallest detail can give us ideas!

    Very clever! Half a room is better than no room. I know it makes her happy!!

    Boy, that sure was a clever use of the vanity! I'll have to show this to DH! Thanks for posting.

    I took over the guest bedroom and set up my sewing area. Very small and cramped until Hubby finish building my detached shop
