    Craft/Sewing Room - The Before Pictures

    It's finally all done. The contractor finished a week ago today. I would have posted the final result earlier, but several "life" things got in the way (a migraine that lasted for days, I got a new computer and had to set it up, my daughter is home from university for spring break...you know, life. )

    This is my family room. It was already finished by the builder when I moved in. The door is leading to the new room. I'm standing on the stairs taking this picture.

    Family room, showing the window opening to the new room. The door that you can see through the window leads to the laundry room.

    Sewing room, looking out into the family room through the window. I'm stranding in the doorway to the laundry room while taking this photo.

    Looking in from the family room. The doors are, left to right, laundry room, corner closet and the full-sized closet. The white shelving between the two closets holds most of my scrapbooking paper pads. The wall that the ironing board is leaning against will be my design wall. I just have to get a curtain rod to hang on the top of that wall. I have curtain rings that have the clips on them, so that I will be able to push the flannel design wall to the left and behind the door when not in use. I'd like to hang some art on that wall.

    My new (used - found on Kijiji for $350) Horn of America sewing table. New ones cost $1,400.

    Right hand side top cupboard doors open. I still have lots of space to fill up!

    Middle of desk. I am going to get a higher bar-stool style chair to use here, as my office chair does not go up high enough to make it comfortable to work on scrapbooking. I usually stand here to cut fabric. The office chair is fine with the sewing table.

    Inside the far left of the large closet, I have two hanging rods for off-season coats.

    The washer and dryer were moved over to the left of the laundry tub. This was because the location of the new wall would have made getting things in and out a bit of a challenge. Moving them over created more space in front of them to load and unload.

    Looking at the furnace. The space on the right where there are now shelves is where the washer and dryer used to be. The door to the new room is on the left.

    Looking at my laundry/storage from the other direction, it looks awful! Ignore the dirty laundry on the floor. I really need to organize this space better, but that will have to wait for later on this spring. If you look at my before pictures of this area in posts 1 and 2, sadly, it really doesn't look much different. Underneath all that there is a White treadle machine that I still do not have room for. I bought it at a yard sale when I was 22, long before I ever started quilting, and I don't know if it even works. Maybe someday I will have the space to find out.

    So that's it! That's the conclusion of my sewing room reno. Thanks to everyone who followed along and posted comments. It was fun showing you all the progress as things progressed.

    Your sewing room is just fabulous! Mine is messy, I can barely get to my workspace. My moment of truth is approaching.
