    First I want to thank everyone on this forum, you helped give me the push to get this done. I am proud of it now, not before though. (Shame) I do not sew in this room, my sewing area is off the end of our living room, where my sewing cabinet is and I also sometimes sew at the kitchen table, where I can look outside.
    This room is just my inventory! And the last picture is where I am trying to find a curtain solution to cover the shelves with. The pink curtains are going to Goodwill, I think I will end up just covering the lower shelves and keeping the easy reach ones open and neat at all times.
    Now I can go through each container and put fabric in order, before I had no room to even try and figure it all out. I am also going to try and get rid of my yarn stash(yep, I got a yarn stash!), so that will free up room too.
    Thanks for looking.

    Not using this curtain idea.

    Nice job! Pat yourself on the back. Now if only I could get motivated. With me it's a case of Murphy's law, whatever space is freed up is immediately filled with something new coming in. LOL

    Your before pictures look like my sewing room. Hopefully I'll be getting some new workspace built soon with more storage. And your after pictures are awesome...good job!

    Very nice!! Wish I had a room at all. My machine sets behind the living room sofa, and my "inventory" is in various tubs in the garage.

    Great job and brave to post before pictures. I wish I had a room for storage. I have to get motivated to do this also. Look for it in June, after my vacation.

    Nice job. Where did you get the cabinet with the bins for fabrics? Looks so handy.

    I love that cabinet, my neighbor builds furniture and I gave him the idea of what I wish I had and that is what he came up with. And it is made with birch and oak.

    Well, I really had to think about posting before I did it, but you know the room was just messy and I got to the point where I would just go in there and find something and leave. I had no room to sort and arrange. Now I can, and I look forward to going in there.
    I think we can all relate in some way. And others sharing pictures of their rooms got me to get my room put in order.

    I wish you many happy hours using your new room! Awesome job!
    One of these days I'm going to get mine organized. I keep getting into more and more projects rather than stop and take the time to really clean it up. My husband built me a gorgeous sewing cabinet and cutting table and he made great storage shelves for everything from Christmas decorations to a food pantry. I have bins similar to yours for my fabrics, but I haven't taken the time to organize it.
    Maybe when my son remodels the Wreckroom, I will get into the mood to clean the back part of the basement where my studio is. On the other hand, it's going to be really messy and dusty, so I'll probably wait until that job is done. I'll have to clean back there anyway. Meanwhile, I'm going to pack up my sewing machine so it doesn't get dirt and dust in it. No, that won't work because I have a toddler quilt I must make by the middle of June and I'm takiing a log cabin class I need to keep up with. Diningroom table, here I come.
    Back to your room - it's fantastic, terrifi, wonderful and all those other positive adjectives. Way to go :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    The after pictures look great! :thumbup:
    I can see why you don't want the pink curtains. They almost look like bathroom or shower curtains.
    Thanks for sharing.

    What a transition you have made in that room. I hope it inspires you to quilt quilt, and quilt some more.

    It's great. Be careful if you start delving into that yarn stash, though. You might get an urge to knit something! I think I went from knitting back to quilting by a process of that sort.
