    We just had our carpet replaced today which meant we spent the last two days clearing out the three bedrooms and floors of closets! The carpet layers left about noon today and we spent the rest of the day reinstalling 'stuff.' My sewing room was top priority! It is certainly a mish-mash of furniture, but it serves me well. Wish it was a little bigger to accomodate a dedicated cutting space, but I get by. This space also serves as my 'office' space - hence the old desk and filing cabinet. Another closet in another bedroom holds more quilting and craft supplies along with another chest of drawers full of other types of fabric and odds and ends.

    This chest of drawers dates to when DH was a baby. It was used for both of our babies as well

    That looks so neat!

    I always start out with good intentions...but then get detoured to the 'road to hell'...

    Oh boy....mine NEVER looks that clean and neat! I have 3 spaces and none of them are that cool looking. I really need to get everything together in ONE place. Thanks for the inspiration.

    What a beautiful sewing room! I only dream of having that much room. Now... if you only had a little frig and a bathroom in there... you'd never have to leave! 8-)

    thanks for sharing. I love looking at other people's sewing rooms. (Kind of like looking in people's windows at night if the shades aren't drawn. I like to do that too. hehe)

    Great room. Did you make your design wall? Looks like it hangs on a curtain rod? Can you tell me more about it?

    Yes, I made the design wall. I usually do large quilts so I wanted it to be as wide as the space would allow and yes, it is hanging from a curtain rod. It is flannel backed vinyl. There is a dowel rod in the bottom to keep it taut. The blocks in the pictures are left-overs from a new bedroom quilt.

    I usually straighten up, vaccuum and dust a little after each major project, but I don't tend to be a 'detailed' duster. However, I cleaned each piece of furniture, front, back, top and bottom as it came back into the room. It won't be quite this truly clean again until we finally get around to repainting the walls which need it badly.

    I just love getting to see other folks' sewing rooms. It's always interesting - especially storage and furniture placement. This room looks so cozy. I love the chair. there's nothing like a fresh, new sewing spot to inspire us!

    How pretty. Love, love the closet with your stash. So easy to find just what you're looking for.

    Now you need to make something and post a pic of that!

    I only have a tiny little bedroom for my sewing room and the spare bed takes up 1/3rd of the room. mind you I haven't seen the bed for months I think it is still there under all the material and junk
