    It's amazing what you come up with when you live in a space for awhile. And what you come across on Kijiji and friends' castoffs. Requires a very open mind - and determination NOT to add to the fabric stash. But I have to go buy some purples for a baby quilt. Maybe when I get everything on comic boards it will free up some space.

    Thanks so much for sharing. I'm working on one too and I need to know how much padding he put under the ironing board cover. Any help would be appreciated. I have the baby changing table...garage sale $30.00, repair of door--$20.00. So I could put more into it. Will retire in 3 years and get to my quilting, I'm collecting everything I'll need.

    Those of us with small rooms have to work extra hard to get it all in there and organized. You did a great job and kudos to your hubby for a good job on his innovations. Never thought of putting a light on the cutting table, I need that as my corner is dark so I might copy the idea. Nice looking room, thanks for sharing.

    I used one layer of heavy duty aluminum foil (just 'cause) and a layer of the batt used for oven mitts (can't remember what it's called) with the foil side out, then one layer light muslin (because I had some) and then made cotton cover. Cover is removable for washing. I actually have a sleeve board, small side (TV) table for ironing and also the regular ironing board both covered in the same material. Just stapled every layer with heavy duty 3/8" staples. Easy & fast. Base is 1/2" plywood ON 1/2" plywood so total is 1" thick,

    This looks so organized so far. Hope you enjoy your special room.
    There is magic in a kind word or warm smile.

    What a cozy space! You have used your space so well.

    And I LOVE your cat ruler holder! Where did you get it?

    I got the cat shelf at a yard sale for $1 then DH cut slots into the shelf. I'd seen the holders they sell for $$$ an thought he could do that. Have something similar for scrapbooking too.

    Thanks for the information = I will have to watch for something like that, maybe combining a cat silhouette with a board that has the slots cut into it.

    Looks great - now all you need is boards to wrap all that fabric on. You have the perfect shelves for Easy Cores. They are for sale on the QB. There are lots of ways people wrap their fabric - but that's all this room really needs in my opinion! Lookin Good!

    I just noticed your Readers Digest Sewing Book on your shelf. I have that one too and love it, great pictures and a lot of help. I don't use it often but when you need to know how to do something, it is in there! You have a nice sewing area!
