    My Minimalist Sewing Room

    My son moved out last year, so made his room the guest room and made the old guest room into my sewing room. It's really serene in here, and it's on the top floor so I can see the squirrel run around in the oak tree in the back yard.

    Great room and to be able to watch the squirrels is fun. It's nice to have the space I wish I did but I guess you can sew wherever you have room I just have to move about to do different things. Your room looks very relaxing and I like the quilt you have by the machine. Happy Quilting. Sue

    Love the cutting station with the rulers hanging up. And it looks like your pressing board sits on top of your table - is that for easy removal? And what's under it, if you don't mind me asking? It looks like there's something between the table and the board? I'm going to turn a repurposed kitchen table as an ironing table and was just thinking I'd pad and cover the top, but I may use your idea instead so I don't have to permanently "install" the pressing surface. Thanks!

    Lovely room!

    It's looking good. As long as you are happy with it. It looks very organized and looks like a peaceful place to sit down and create.

    I really like your multi purpose shelf unit with drawers to store little items and the hangers to store your larger rulers and other things. Job well done !!

    so i love the large yellow button on your sewing table [where did you get this? ] also the shelf/ruler system [where did you find it?] and lastly the ironing station - did you make this?
