    Finally Consolidated Sewing and Office into Master Bedroom

    Since it's only me living here and the cats and dog could care less what I do with my space, I have taken over the Master Bedroom with my sewing/cutting tables and my office table and desk. Now there is plenty of room for me to play. I moved the bed to the bedroom that was used to be the office and that works a lot better for me.

    Here are pics of my new playroom. (No pictures of the bedroom, it's still a mess in there, but who cares. hehehehehehe)

    Hooray! Why not use your space in whatever way works best for you? Looks neat and spacious. Have fun in there.

    Good for you! Why not! Do what makes us happy and more comfortable with what we do. My DH and I are old and we do whatever we want to do in our house. Our kids just shake their heads. So----------?

    I took the biggest bedroom for my sewing room since its the only downstairs bedroom. And I don't live alone. I have a hubby and 2 little boys. It's the only way to keep them out of my stuff and allow metro have a place to work while they are up, and so my crafting noise doesn't keep them awake. Dh and I only use our room for bed anyways, so this is a much more useful way to use our space.

    Looks great, and I agree, why waste all that room to sleep. It works much better as a Sewing Studio !!!

    Looks good! We built a "mother-in-law" apartment, but my MIL won't move in with us. I am seriously thinking about turning the huge living room there into a sewing room. Either I will get a large sewing space or, as soon as I relocate my sewing stuff there, my MIL will decide to move in! I actually hope she does move in - I love her to pieces!

    A sewing room definitely is more important than a bedroom.

    I love creative decisions! It's your home and what a great idea!! I live with my oldest daughter in the basement of her home and I've turned a bar into a sewing center... not exactly what you normally do with a bar, but it sure works for me! haha!

    Your sewing space is so neat! Mine looks like a tornado just went through! Congrats on your decision. Use your space in a manner that works for you!

    Smart thinking. I have a friend who put up a longarm in her living room. She said she doesn't entertain and all her friends are quilters too.

    That's another sweet thing about getting older and/or living alone. You can create workrooms and rearrange anyway you want! You go girl!!

    Love the idea. I do have a bedroom in my brothers house that is my sewing room but I would love to have a place of my own and would so turn the living room into a sewing room or whatever was the biggest room in the house. I have no company and my Daisy doesn't care what I use the room for as long as she can be under my feet in it.

    Looks great. Like you I live alone and turned my living room which is the largest room in the house into my sewing room and I have a little sitting room off of the dining room so that is now my living room. dogs don't care where their beds are as long as it is where I am so we are all happy.
