    I am so impressed, you even have your strips organized. I need to get with the program. LOL

    WOW this is so neat, I love the swing out ironing board, I hate getting up to press pieces. The rest sure looks well
    organized also. The thread holders on the wall is nice do you cover your thread?

    I do cover my thread. It is covered with clear vinyl sheeting to keep it from getting dusty. Each rack has its own seperate cover and I just lift it up to grab what I need.

    Nice space. The fold out ironing board is a great idea.

    I should have mentioned the lighting in my sewing room. Whatever the DH did with the lighting means that I no longer use the gooseneck light that came with my quilting machine. The lighting is fabulous. If anyone is working on lighting and wants suggestions, I can post information on what he did. He tried several things before we got what I now have. I have no shadows and can see everything better than I ever did before!

    I agree with everyone. It's a great room, and is a functional example of what can be done in a relatively small space. Good job. It's giving me the emotional push to finish setting mine up. Thanks.

    I'm not sure I will ever be totally finished setting mine up - always a work in progress. BTW the pictures don't show how big the room actually is. It is 12X17' - There is a queen size bed in there AND I have my quilting frame set up with plenty of room for my cutting table. I don't like having the guest bed in there, but until I can talk one of the kids into moving out, I'm stuck with it.

    He used 120 watt equivalent CFL (23 watt) daylight.There are 9 floodlights. I also have lighting under the cabinets that I rarely use because the other lighting seems to do the trick. He tried several different things before coming up with the solution.

    Special features include a small ironing board that swivels and folds down completely flat at the end of the sewing counter, a pullout counter extenstion to the right of my main machine for pins, scissors, etc.. and a base for my chair to keep me from rolling out of position

    love your room. it is really encouraging me to continue. I read one of those organizing blogs the other day, and she strongly suggests putting everything away as much as possible so you can start with a clean slate. Huh. That's my problem. I have started to box things that are sitting around. But I don't have enough room to really put things away until I put up my wall system in the new room. But I can't put up the wall system till I paint the room,or at least the one wall where the system will be placed. Except I can't do that until I move what is in the room away from the wall. And I can't do that till I can move the bed into the old room, which is where all the boxes currently are. HELP!!! I love looking at the wonderful pictures you sent, and I can even see my room set up in my mind, but it's like a catch 22.

    Your chair looks as though it sits up high and your foot pedal is on a step stool? Am I looking at that correctly? How is it to sew like that? Is it comfortable?

    Love your room! Does the lighting make the room warm? Even with the lights in my room, it warms up and I have to turn on the fan and open the window (I love menopause...NOT!)

    Yes, my chair is high to accommodate the kitchen height counter. It took awhile to come up w/ the right combination. My foot pedal is on an adjustable foot rest. The foot rest has a non-slip top and sits on a wooden box (hubby pulled out from somewhere) to make it the right height. I am only 5' tall, so I am used to having to compensate to have things fit.
    And, yes, I am quite comfortable

    The only time I notice the lights making the room hot is when I turn on the lights under the cupboard during the summer. I think those lights are a different kind. My roomis in the basement, so that probably helps. Also, have not hit menopause, yet. I may have a different answer after I do!
