    Before & After....

    My sewing room was flooded due to a broken pipe and we finally got it done but I am only using half of it since I have a lot of my son's belongings stored until their house is remodeled. Not sure why the second picture turned on its side... it was right side up when it was attached.

    That's an awful experience. Sorry you had to endure it, but the end result is sure fabulous! It looks like a great space to be creative.

    tinker...my daughter and I did most of it, but my husband helped...lol the top and bottom pieces were really heavy. It was made with all premade storage units from amazon and 2 sheets of melamine from the lumber yard, added some wheels and it has worked great. I don't have to layer quilts on the floor anymore!

    I’m sorry you had to go through the experience of a flood but your remodeled space looks wonderful. I like your flooring and workspaces. I’m sure you are happy to have your space back.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Sorry about the flood, but your new space is lovely!
    People will see your quilts long after you're gone - NOT your housework!

    Very nice!

    You say that is only half, so when you son moves his stuff out you'll have room for a Long Arm, then you won't have to worry about layering quilts at all

    I am looking forward to getting the whole space back.. the half not shown (since it is buried in storage totes) has a table, easy chair, and fireplace and a floor to ceiling storage unit full of fabric. I know it sounds strange but we used vinyl siding on the ceiling, we liked how it looked, it was cost-effective, easy to clean and also easy to remove if we need to get access to the plumbing again. The cutting table we made ourselves and the sewing table is from Koala. We are gone for the winter and I am already missing my sewing room, but the fact that they got about 18 inches of snow today is making it a little easier to stay here and I found a sweet little featherweight to play with while I am away...

    Every cloud has a silver lining! Great idea on the choice for ceiling finish. I have unfinished ceilings in my basement...this may be a good choice for me as well.

    Very nice!
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    Wow! Your half of your new room is great! Bummer you had to have a flood experience.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    I'll have two of the 'after', please. Wow, what a difference! Enjoy!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
