    Wowzers, It is awesome. Love your wall of cabinets. Great idea on the memory foam mat. Thanks for sharing. Your sewing room is coming along great!

    Terrific space and I love the cabinets! Wish there was an Ikea closer to me! It looks like a thoughtful, well-organized space, full of light and happiness. Much luck and fun sewing there!

    I have my eye on those Billy cabinets too for my sewing room. I like the doors too- was thinking that I didn't need doors because of the added expense. It's something to consider. I love your room and wish you many hours of creativity.

    Lovely room! Can tell you spent time and planning. Great area to be creative. May need to look into that table-like the looks of it.
    This too shall pass.

    Thank you! I really did work hard on the design. I spent a month planning before I bought or moved anything.

    I have 2 cats and 3 dogs that are all indoors most of the time. They are blocked from entering the room by a baby gate, but fur still migrates across those floors and floats through the air! I know my fabric will stay a LOT cleaner behind doors, and there is a lot of light in the room so fading was a little bit of a concern as well. These doors were $15 each. 10 doors adds up, but I think the 'bang for the buck' was totally worth it.

    I used bed risers to raise one of my oak tables. I like things high, don't like to bend over to do things. Love your cabinets.

    I'm sure you been told already this is genius. Neighbor uses old spools for door knobs also. Her colors of spools tell her what is behind the door. She has older cabinets where the knobs and handles rusted. Super idea!

    Rulers

    Please watch your rulers for warping, esp. from the heat coming in from the window.
    My, you are a serious quilter to redo the living area to sewing space. Love your thread knobs.

    A lot of these pictures are out of order, I still don't have "final" pictures of everything done..but I'm getting there!

    WALL OF CABINETS! Boom!
    Attachment 478235

    And what are those weird bulky knobs on those cabinets? ZOOM IN:
    Attachment 478236

    Small wooden spools, wrapped in turquoise and orange thread!

    Design wall! Just a length of flannel tacked to the wall at present, eventually will be foam board. But even so, immense improvement over the prior set up!
    Attachment 478237

    Rails and hooks! Best invention ever. And love my gooseneck lamp, shines right down on my cutting surface.
    Attachment 478238

    Those are all hanging over my cutting table, which is also where I stash my batting.
    Attachment 478239

    In the window - turns out the window is just the right size to fit one of those slotted ruler holders. SO HANDY.
    Attachment 478241

    My "L" shaped sewing area - woohoo! (It's more fixed up now, the machine's not even plugged in yet in this pic, lol)
    Attachment 478240

    I put this on the floor in front of my cutting table; it's a memory foam mat. I'm barefoot 99% of the time and this has a wonderful plushy feel.
    Attachment 478242

    I still have a to-do list about 10 items long, but it's done enough to the point that I'm sewing again. It's been way too long!
    Jesus knows all my imperfections yet he still loves me. Amazing!

    Hmmm, good point! I didn't think about heat, I'll have to keep an eye on this. There's a big (ugly) shed right outside that window that should help shade it (part of why I blocked the view...there wasn't one!) but if they get too warm I might put something else out there to help shade it. Thanks for the tip!

    I was eyeing those little vintage machines, too. They look interesting.

    Great room. Love the cabinets with the door knobs. Wish Ikea was in LV. Closest ones are in LA ): Just be careful of needles and pins, since you like to be barefoot. Too many horror stories of traveling pins picked up while barefoot.

    What brand of cabinets are these or where can they be found at? I love'em. Your room is set up really nice.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !
