    Make sure you have the right size table for ironing and table for cutting and stuff, make sure these tables are at a comfortable height. I love my florecent lights, especially over my quilting machine. I don't know where you live but, think about a air conditioner and heat source as they are needed for your climate. Bookcases are wonderful for just about anything. I like to use a peg board to hang boocoos of stuff. Sounds like you are a lucky lady, have fun with it and remember it's yours and do it the way you want it right off the bat! You can always experiment with it and change it as you desire. Good luck and have fun!......
    Also, tell your military family and or clients THANKS from a little old countrygirl in KY. Thanks for all they do, as well as, their families!.... God Bless Them ALL!.......................

    My DH installed 2 long florescent light fixtures in my sewing room, has Ottlite like bulbs, so I get great lighting and its not a yellow light.
    He put the same type of lighting in the kitchen, its wonderful.

    For goodness sake, do not worry about what to put in there. Before you know it, the space will be so overfull. Take your time, move in, and play for a while. You'll figure it out. If not, then put in some shelves and buy enough fabric to fill them. You'll be just as crazy, uhm, HAPPY as the rest of us.

    Sweet. My little sewing room is done in ladybugs as well. The upper half of my wall is red with lower half beige with a black stripe and ladybug decals all around. I have two windows and ladybug valances. I am in the process of reorganizing and will post pics when finished. Good luck to you. Oh, I have purchased comic book boards and have wrapped my stash on them (like 400). It is already looking much better and my room is not all that big (just a bedroom)

    I have seen the Cd racks are you pulling out the plastic insert to store fat quarters in them or leaving it in?

    That is my dream to have a separate studio. Have fun designing it and make it bright and cheery with lots of nature light.
