I have so many ideas from them floating in my head. DH is going to make me a sewing cabinet. I am so excited! He found some great looking oak and the plans have been ordered. Hopefully it won't take him forever to get it built. DD will not be happy when she finds I have taken over her room while she is at college. But she has her own apartment there so why should I be worried. LOL.

My mom has converted an old school science lab table (remember those-with the sink and drawers beneath?)to her cutting table. She covered the top in batting and muslin just enough to still be workable. It is about 47" high and is perfect for cutting. It gets used all the time.

Good for you in getting your own sewing room. Your daughter has left the nest and doesn't need her own room anymore. If she's like my DD when she went to college she came home to do laundry and get money,lol!! It got to be further & further between trips and money can be sent. If she plans on coming for a "visit" all she needs is a couch,lol!!!

I was mistaken about the height of mom's cutting table - it is 38" high.

Hey...I am totally with you! My son left for college last year and my daughter is a SR in high school so she'll be gone in less than a year. My dad lived with us too while I took care of him. So...they all move on and so should we :D I was SO worried about empty nest but honestly quilting has helped me think about what I would lke for the 1st time and we deserve it!! My husband and I talked about where I could set up a quilting area and he gave me the entire main room in our basement!! I am SO excited! I am planning to use my first quilt as my "theme" as I just loved the colors of the fabric. I have had tons of fun planning it all out. I found an old desk for $30 and repainted it and am still working on a cutting table. I'm hoping to post pics of before and after and you need to as well....I'm SO excited for you. HAVE FUN!!

As soon as my kids were in their first live away from home place, their rooms were no more. Having the same childhood room would be a crutch to move back home instead of dealing with a hard spot. Sewing room, guest room, and DH turned one bedroom into a media room. They still have a lot of their room items packed in boxes in our garage. They never seem to have room for them even in the new homes they move into. I am in the process of getting rid of the guest room and planning to have a quilting machine set up in it. I bought four roll a way beds that fit perfectly in a walk in closet. Any more guests than that I have blow up beds and money for a motel room.
