    Yippee, hubby agreed that we can swap out the diningroom, which has been home-office for the last 6 years, with the sewing room (front small solarium) ~ so he'll now have the little room, and I get the 11x15 room all to my crafty self! No pics yet, but as soon as I get all this furniture / bookshelves / fabrics moved, I'll take some of my new "sewing lair"... I will have room to setup my new SUPER QUILTER frame!!! yay!

    He's such a great guy, if I suggested he have his computer in the front closet, he would probably say "ok, dear"... he's a keeper.

    Off to start tearing apart the bookshelves, I'm going to need a jacuzzi at the end of the day!!!

    That's great news! I sure wish I could double mine. Don't take all the bookshelves out, unless you don't have any quilting books, magazines, etc., and even if you don't, you can use them for storing fabrics and other related items.

    oooohhhhh, no! Those are on top of the embroidery machine already, and that is already on top of my Willcox & Gibbs cabinet in the new room. Cannot misplace those, no way! That's one of soonly upcoming gotta-do-it projects :)

    The bookshelves are currently in the solarium, filled with my fabrics... they are being torn apart to be moved to the new room... 4 bookshelves total, 2 of which are custom-made bolt shelves from a craft shop / LQS that went OOB a couple years ago. But the new room will have my computer desk, industrial light table 4x6 ft, maching quilt frame, 4 bookshelves for fabrics, all my craft drawer rolling carts, I do believe everything BUT my scrapbooking center will fit into the new plan :)

    the scary part is, so move this furniture from one end of the house to the other, we have to up-end the sofa / loveseat so the "ships can pass in the night"... LOL here's the rough layout, I did it in a CAD program to scale to make sure all my furniture would fit before I moved one piece of furniture...

    Don't forget to post pics after the move :))

    I've debated switching rooms since my DD is really no longer ever coming home from college, and infact next week we have to take her bed to her because she is subletting an off campus apartment for the summer. Her room is at least double the size of "MY" room, but it means moving everything downstairs and painting her room.

    So far I haven't been able to convince myself

    LOL starting to move furniture now... my dragons are not happy, as they are in the livingroom, and we're passing all the furniture thru there... my male dragon is giving me blackbeards! He's a nosey little goober anyway, and with the computer desk in his way, he cannot see what's going on in the room LOL

    Oh my - he IS a keeper! Love it when loved ones support our passion.
    DH says no problem with getting a quilting frame/mid arm to set up here in the dining room. Yes, the dining/kitchen area is huge.....it's the only huge area we have in the converted-office-space-to-living space.
    Yup - gonna keep mine too!

    whew, got 95% of the stuff moved yesterday, wow are we sore & tired!!! Now DD said she is willing to help organize a little today... but the front office (the real biz that pays the bills LOL) needs up and running first, we promised daddy :)

    Everything is a mishmash of "stuff" everywhere in the new room so far, its going to take all day, but OMG we have so much room to do it! Yay!

    Yea more room. I am debating about removing the bed from my room because we do not get very many overnight guests and when some of the kids or GKs come I already have a bed stored in the closet that can be pulled out. I like the idea even more now that I have talked about it.
