    I need to buy a few more white shelves, make curtains for around the white table. I would love to do something with that mulitcolor self/boxes. I have the way it looks but its great for holding cut pieces. Need to buy a curtain rod to hold up my template, cutting mats and the buckets. I bought the wrong size from Ikea. I don't feel like ordering another one. I think I can find one at the store.

    I'm trying--unsuccessfully--not to be jealous. Beautiful work space!

    One of my big issues is the lighting. I need to figure out what to do about that. I also hate the plastic colored bins. The one on wheels...they are cheap and ugly but it does hold the cut pieces and makes it easy to get at. My husband says it does not go with the room and I should get rid of it. hmm...need to think of a solution. I love the curtain rods! When I am making a quilt I can put up a flannel piece. I have clip on rings. I have to find out what I did with the other package I bought a while back.

    What a charming and inviting work space. My favorite is the comfy chair to sit and quilt or have a friend join you in your room to visit and quilt! Or maybe the design wall on the curtain rod idea. Or maybe the sewing machine and table set-up. Hmmm...lots of favorites! Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.

    Can you cover plastic bins with material?

    the chair is a massage chair. I would never buy one that is so low..its was a gift. It is a nice to have but odd that it sits so low to the floor.

    Love your room but don't think your table needs curtains but again that's your room. Just something else to take care of and have to launder and then you have to shove the curtains out of the way. Sorry!

    Love your "L-shaped" table. I covered my table with self stick Velcro on the board, and sew-on Velcro on the fabric. Also made an opening in ea. side that overlaps so I have easier access or can remove a section if need be. Good luck! The curtain hides a lot of clutter. Your sewing space looks great.

    Love both of your spaces! As far as the rolling cart with the pullout drawers maybe you could make a cover for it too. Let's see if I can explain it simply. Make it a three sided slip cover that covers the back, both sides and the top. Then have a long flap in the front that extends from the top piece. When you don't want to use the drawers, pull down the flap that covers the front of all of those drawers. You could even put a cute little bow on each side to tie or make a little velcroed flap on each side to keep it shut. When you want to use it, flip up the flap and you can pull out any drawer. You could use some sewing themed fabric and even make the cover to match your skirt for your table. Hope this is clearer than mud!

    It looks great. I especially love the old sewing machine cabinet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.
