    Here's my little sewing room! <photo heavy>

    It took me a year to get it this far organization and decor wise. It's not clean, but this is more realistic. It's in the basement, which I don't much like. At least there is a window. I've found that since I "windy-ed" it up some, I like it better.

    I think it looks great and doesn't look like it's in the basement. Love the way you painted your desk.

    Windylu, I like your style! That chair is gorgeous, and the snazzy paint job on the desk is super. Hope you have many happy hours there.

    Thanks! I had a lot of fun with the desk and the chair. The desk I found free on the side of the road and the chair was a $4 find at Goodwill. I think I put about $20 into the chair and I had the paint and masking tape for the desk on hand.

    The hairpin leg table was also free - I just had to go pick it up. I love Craigslist.

    What a great place to escape to and sew. It shows not only that you are very creative but aso frugual. Love the way you envision varisous ways to recreate. Great ideas!

    Ditto on all the comments, but my favorite is the last picture! Love the suitcases, and wooded boxes. I have a few in my studio also.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    I love the little table your sewing machine is on. And all the vintage excessories. Do you use the stacked suitcases for storage?

    Oh my gosh, this space has great stuff going on. There's lot of 'Windy' potential.:-) Keep going.

    Doing the happy dance for you.

    Looks good to me. My room is also in the basement which my hsband refers to as my apartment. Do I spend too much time there?

    Windylou, I like your style !!!! I do what you have done. I use what I have and make it work for me. I love country clutter or whatever you want to call it. I may send in pictures of my sewing room now.

    Love your sewing room. That chair -- did you cover it yourself? Love the fabric. I have a chair like that that needs covering but afraid to tackle it.
