    Nice move!! My DH once asked me if I realized that as the kids moved out I filled in their spaces and that he still has his shed out side.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Great sewing room. You may need some paint to tone down that floral wallpaper. LOL

    like the room and the stripe paper but the floral too overwhelming. nice job taking the room over for yourself.

    I like the room...very cheery and happy looking. I did the same thing: kid moved out took his room. Another moved out, another room for me. When the last one moved out, my hubs enclosed the carport for a studio....said he was worried that I'd take every room of the house and he'd get pushed out, too! Enjoy your space!

    I like your room, your machine setup, your cutting table - everything. Even the flowered wall paper. I love flowered wall paper!

    When the grandkids moved I used their room for my cutting table and all the stuff I store under it and paper boxes I had stashed in three of the bedroom closets. Only one not stahed in was our bedroom closet.

    Love your room, very organized and bright. Don't get too comfortable, though. I still have my youngest son at home, goes to college. The middle (daughter) got married last year and got a house in our neighborhood. My oldest son haven't lived at home for 6-7 years. GUESS WHAT ?? He's back, with my grandson when he has him half the time. I still have my sewing room, though. But, we have a 5 BD house busting out at the seams. He moved his entire house into ours and into the garage !! Hope that doesn't happen to you...LOL

    Love how organized your room is. I'd get rid of the Encyclopedias now that the kids are older. They go out of style? so fast that you don't need them after 2 years. Then you can use that bookcase for more shelving for fabric.

    Yup, grab those bedrooms as soon as they leave. My oldest left and I made his room a guest room. Guess who moved back and is the "guest" now? On top of that, he even took over one of my sewing rooms so I'm down to one! But it is nice to have him back and I don't have to mow the lawn now (DH can't do it because of his asthma).

    I love being an empty nester too! Kids are doing well, off to their own places. I have 1 bedroom for my sewing and hubby uses family room for his N scale trains. Love the kids to visit but wouldn't want to give up the new freedom!!
