Yes, we'll be careful with measurements etc. That's good advice.

IKEA furniture is fabulous for sewing rooms. We purchased a table (right) and then an additional top-only that we placed on some cube storage units purchased from Kmart. It's wonderful because it's all sold separately!

Thanks, the tall cabinet is not IKEA tho. My room looks different now because #1 it's a mess from working in there and #2 because I have a lot more stuff in there now. These pics were takes a few years ago.

Jennalyn,
I remember when you posted that picture before. It's a great setup. Will have to check out the tables too, next time we go.

We put 3 PAX wardrobe units including doors (from IKEA) side by side in our laundry room. It looks great and the PAX units are very strong. We got extra shelves and brackets just in case we wanted to change the configuration of the shelves over time. That has really paid off. I wanted to be able to put standard plastic bins (like from Walmart) on each shelf, so I considered that when I decided how many shelves to get. We also put 2 drawers at the bottom of each unit, and that has been real handy too. The PAX units and shelves are so strong, they don't sag like other less expensive units.

DH assembled it, easily, on living room floor and I helped carry it into the laundry room. We stood them up and then DH anchored them to each other (to hold them close to each other) and then to the wall (we live in earthquake country).

We liked them so much, we went back and got more PAX units (without the doors this time) and put them in our guest room closet....yea!....more room for more fabric. Again we got extra shelves, just in case our needs changed, and sure enough, we have made changes over the last 5 years 2 or 3 times. Almost all the extra shelves are now in use.

We had to drive 2 hours + to get to the nearest IKEA, so IKEA let us open all the packages to verify that there were no chipped or missing pieces. We did change out one shelf with a ding on its corner, and we discovered we were short a couple shelf brackets. So we were able to go home knowing everything was complete and in perfect condition.

It looks beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone!
