    I just finished painting my two cabinets, One is a hoosier that came with our house, It was in bad shape,but I didn't feel like changing the old peeling paint, so last year I moved it in to my 9by10 sewing room,and put everything to do with computers in it, Then I moved my old armoire in too, My materials are in there, I bought a little dinning room table,and it is now my cutting board. I think ,I paid 20 dollors for it. So I think I'm done . It looks real cute, Small but I can't leave,so big a mess, No room. Our house was build in 1925, Small all over.

    This was my grandma"s tredle,I took it out of the cabinet and now sew on top

    I love the turquiose color. Nice job re-purposing the cabinet. Looks like you have lots of storage too!

    What a sweet room! My sewing room in 7 1/2 x 12--so the same sq footage as yours. Yours seems to flow better than my narrow space. Thanks for sharing!

    Love your room! I like how you used the old treadle drawer for storage. I have seen them many time but never thought of a way to use them.

    Isn't it fun having a room all for yourself to play in. Love the way you finsihed the furniture and repurposed it all. It looks very functional to me. Good job. Have fun.

    Hmmm I have an old Hoosier Cabinet sitting it the garage right now. I just might have to clean mine up and bring it into my sewing room.

    This looks delightful - brings to mind the words "comfortably enclosed" as you are in your own little nest when you walk in there to sew. I could enjoy this space and what you've done with it ........
