    Red face Sewing room redo

    I wanted to separate my sewing and my computing areas in my room. Previously they shared and L-shaped desk. Also to lower the height of my sewing machine table to ease the strain in my shoulders.

    My son suggested we go to IKEA. bought two tables. He and my grandson put the tables together. Then my son cut the hole for my machine in one table; put a shelf under it to hold my sewing machine. He put casters on the other table to raise it for cutting. Now they sit so the cutting table can hold a quilt when it is on the machine. And it can be rolled out for moving around when cutting.

    I'm so happy.

    Didn't you post this 'redo' 2 days ago? Or is the QB duplicating your post?

    It was on a Fons and Porter show--still on their website. #1613 I think. They had it in big red flowers and the pattern got lost. It isn't had but do measure carefully when you make the template and do a sample. I didn't do either and my points are very bad. bought the horse fabric from a board member. Marbeth

    I may have, I posted it on Facebook. I'm really proud of the job they did for me. I should add that Walt put the floor down for my birthday last year. It's first life was to be the floor in peanut factory. Then his bedroom floor. He thought I needed it and took it up from his house and brought it to me. Took the carpet out of this room and put it into his bedroom. It is hundre year old heart pine.
