    Love your sewing area. How lucky you are! I also have double closets in the room where I sew and had never thought of removing the doors. They look way cool.

    Wonderful place you have for yourself. I have my own place unless we have company but at least I no longer have to drag out the machine or have it in the bedroom or living room all the time.

    That is wonderful!!! I love how you dropped you machine in the table in the last picture. I need one of those. I guess I better keep on wishing. I still haven't gotten my Christmas present from the bf...all I wanted was a wooden cover to just set on top of my ironing board. I told him I would cover it, just for him to make it...lol.
    You room is very organized and looks like a wonderful place to create!!!

    Just needed a table and thought about checking on Craigslist for one. This was listed as a pine farm table for $20.00. It looked like it had been used for children's art projects, all scratched with paint and who knows what else on it. Anyway I knew it was solid maple when I saw it. It weighed a ton. It was in good shape structurally. The legs had already been painted white and only needed to be cleaned really well. DH sanded, refinished, and poly coated the surface. Then we made a template by tracing the shape of the insert and machine. I added 2" to be cut from the right side of the machine so that I could access power and foot pedal cords.
    We constructed a box and attached it to the underside of the table to act as a shelf to place the machine on. DH cut a hole in it to thread the power cord up through. We turned it over and put it where I had planned for it to sit and it is waiting for me to use it.

    The best sewing table idea I have ever seen was when we were living in NC. An acquaintance had a large area in the basement where she did her quilting. She had an old pingpong table that she used as a cutting table and had her machine set at one end. Then she had a long table to the left side of her sewing machine. Had the whole thing covered with plastic like you would use to cover furniture. I envied that set up but had nowhere near the room for one like it here. I am happy with this. I have years worth of fabric to work at getting rid of. Love all the great comments!, Thanks
