    You are one lucky lady. DH sounds like a real keeper. Keep him close or someone may try to steal him. Your rooms are fantastic. Even though I have my sewing room I'm still green . Enjoy your wonderful space and many hours of happy quilting etc.

    Wow, congratulations. As I type, my sewing room is being worked on and I can hardly wait. It is going to be so much fun for you to be able to know that this is your space and you can leave it or pick it up as you need to. Enjoy, enjoy.

    Hi Fabric Collector,
    My ironing board is actually a kitchen island that I took from the kitchen! My hubby popped the butcher block top off and I wrapped it in batting and then the silver ironing fabric. Then he screwed it all back together. It measures 37"ht by 44"L and 22"w. I sometimes wish it were a bit wider! I am also 5'7". Having a cutting mat on top would work really nicely too. The table I use to cut on is actually a pub table from a clearance center. It was less than $100 and came without chairs and a few scratches-perfect! Sounds like you are well on your way to a great ironing and cutting station too!

    The ironing station is actually a kitchen island we bought years ago at a big box hardware store. My hubby popped the butcher block top of and I wrapped it in batting and ironing cloth (??) then he reattached the top. It works great.

    Thanks everyone-it is only because people like you have shared their spaces thru pictures online that I found all the ideas I used to design this space. Nothing was an original idea! I kept a file of ideas for years before I had the opportunity to create this space. I incorporated my other hobbies into the space and moved storage drawers and shelves home from my classroom after I retired. (Which was YEARS of storage purchases!) We built the cabinets 15 inches deep because someone online mentioned that scrapbook albums would fit easier.

    My stash area is actually a walk-in closet with Ikea baskets. The tables around my sewing machines are garage sale Ikea or those cheap plastic tables available at Wal-Mart. Underneath each I have those plastic Iris drawers. (I think it helps that everything is white-it hides a lot of mismatched furniture.)

    Thanks again and keep posting pictures of your space-it helps us all become inspirations!
