    New sewing room

    I wish I had remembered to take before pictures. But, it was not pretty, the walls were drab & in need of fresh paint. It had carpet that was long past it's lifespan. It had mis matched of broken down cabints & dressers. It was not an inspiring place to be creative & not much truely usable space.

    Now there is room for everything to be organized & what is not in use has a place to be stored away.

    There is a large closet not in the pictures that has additional storage. New cabinets, new cork flooring & new cabinests.

    It is not a huge room, but it is now perfect for what I needed it to be. The walls are waiting for my daughter & I to add our own creations soon.

    The first two pics are the same wall different views, the last is the design wall where my daughter does her sewing.

    I'm green with envy. Love the color of your room and that wall hanging is so cute, too. Interested in the cork flooring you used. I really need to make my room more creative and pretty. Thanks for posting.

    What a great space. I'm sure the two of you will enjoy it, together. Any info you can share on the spool blocks? Love the colors you used for them.

    We are adding on and one room will be my sewing room. I love the way you have the cabinets and the top. Great Idea! Thanks

    I have the same cabinet. Love it and what a bargain at $79 from Walmart with free delivery. Enjoy your room!

    Great room, I am jealous but proud for you. I am a clutterer but try to keep my quilting in some sort of order. LOL
    Have fun and many hours of family time with your daughter.

    Although green is not my favorite color, I have to admit that I am EXTREMELY green with envy. It's a great room.
    Happy sewing and quilting,

    This is a great area. I especially like the long counter space to sew. Did you have the cabinets custom built?

    Beautiful & inspirational room. Very open. I am still in the process of setting up my after a move last year. I finished up the valances yesterday & put them up. Really livened up the room. I used a fabric with a cream background but, has bright cheerful colors. I love what they do for the room. Your green walls do that also. So now you can go forth, create & conquer those straight seams. LOL!! You & your daughter will enjoy it for a long, long, time.
