    Guess what's next?! Yep, I am going to make an auxiliary sewing room in there. I can't get rid of the bed and baby cradle my husband made for the kids, & grandkids used it too. But I am going to put a sewing machine in there with my ironing and cutting equipment. The room is small, but has 2 nice windows facing south and west so it is cheery. I'll take a pic when I have it set up. Okay, you talked me into it. Here are some pics of what it looks like now with most of the toys gone.

    So jealous... As of a couple of weeks ago, I have to share my sewing room with the baby. It's pretty useless - I can't sew when she's asleep, so I have to do what I can when my DH watches her!

    Enjoy your room - you have earned it!

    love your room and now you can make it your cool sewing room,

    what type of extension do you have on your table to make it taller

    also you will enjoy the closet to store your fabrics and bookcase for your quilting books and magazines

    thanks for sharing with all of us

    Okay, here it is. Not much to it for now. Things will come in while I am sleeping, I'm sure. I have plastic pipe connectors with little wood disks inside to raise the table a little. Had a mini-crisis while sliding the cradle under it. Forgot my glass of wine and iron were on the table, the leg extensions tipped, glass fell and broke and iron fell. Iron is okay, but lost 1/2 a glass of wine. The sewing table is an old machine cabinet without the machine and a piece of laminate from a desk extension not being used. No $$$ were expended in the transformation.....yet....

    Looks like a nice cheery room with lots of natural light. I believe it will make a great sewing room.

    Now that all our kids have moved out, I have 2 rooms. One has a bed and dresser set up so the grandkids can spend the night, and the other is my sewing room. I only come out for meals most days. It's great. Sometimes my DH visits, but we never watch the same t.v. programs. He likes politics. Ugh! I would post a picture, but I don't know how. lol

    Well, I can do some sewing without having to leave the dogs upstairs for long periods of time. I will still do big projects and my embroidery stuff in the basement, but I can do little stuff up here instead of at the kitchen table. I have been wanting to purge the toys for months now. The stuffed animals are next.

    Great space!! Congrats. Think outside the box when setting up your sewing stuff. You are looking at a wall when you sew. If you put the back of your machine to the wall, with the cabinet projecting into the room, you could be looking out a window and your project would flow easily off the cabinet instead of banging into the wall. Just a thought. Love your ironing idea. I am happy for you to have a space. Move the crib to the living room. LOL

    I agree with Sharoni--move that cradle to the living room (family room, if you have one?)so you can show it off! Too, you need that space under your ironing table for some of those plastic drawer units or a place to store quilting supplies.

    JUst love the color of that room. As for the glass of wine, refill and enjoy, I like to have wine and wonder how to arrange.
