    Well, now that I have my sewing room cleaned up, and may not do THAT again for awhile, I thought I'd share pictures. Since we have a 4 bedroom house, I get a WHOLE room for my office/sewing room. In about a month I won't need an office because I'm dissolving my home business. I'll have filing cabinet space for patterns and projects. The computer will be for the quilting board! This used to be my son's room, and then my daughter moved into it when he left home because of the big closet. The paisley wallpaper went on about 16 or 17 years ago for her - and I left it because it reminds me of my youth I guess! My DH (I'm hoping that means something positive, cause I'm new at this) is a retired building contractor, so he did a wonderful job making a counter for me out of 2 hollow core doors. He built a nice window seat for me so I can keep my books underneath. I've had this room for several years now, but the addition of the white cabinets is new - they came out of my daughter's hallway. The cutting/pressing table used to be the check out counter at my niece's shop (np3's daughter) It's a perfect size and has good storage underneath. The little storage chest was in the garage for years. I painted it and added labels on the drawers for notions and stuff. I JUST added the thread holder on the wall, too - I LOVE it! That's about it - it's pretty cozy in here.

    My counters are made from two doors

    The picture over the computer is a map of quilt shops in CA and the picture over the cutting table is a puzzle

    You recycled or repurposed so many of the 'features' of the room, and it looks great. I know you'll thoroughly enjoy it.

    Aren't handy husbands great to have around?

    Ha! It's NEVER this neat - that's why I took a picture! I'll start on another project now and things will pile up, then I'll reach a point where I can't work in here until it's clean again. It's a vicious circle! Is it just me? Anybody?

    We all start out that way. When the kids are grown and gone (sometimes for the SECOND time) you'll eventually turn one of those bedrooms into your oasis:)

    Beautiful room, so organised, so creative (even the drawer handles look like buttons)...Ah well, I can but dream...the room is not out of the question...just the finish, so to speak!

    I just went to Google Images and searched for what I wanted. When I find the right picture, I can just "drag" it onto my desktop. I have a Mac, so I'm not sure how you save them on a PC.

    What a sweet, cosy room. I like it . It's inspiring that you can use what you have to make a nice sewing room.
