    It has taken several months to get my new sewing room completed.
    We converted our single car garage into the sewing room
    It has also cost a lot of money so I want to brag and show off my new room.
    I have 25 pictures and would like to show ya'll all of them but not sure I can do that, however I will give it a try.

    You are a lucky girl! Like the idea of the ironing board folding down from the cabinet!

    The cabinets are beautiful, and the color you chose makes the room still look roomy! I think the nicest part of having that many cabinets is the room can always look clean now too, something that is lacking in my sewing room!

    You know, at first I thought "looks pretty good WITHOUT doors". Then I saw WITH doors and WOW! They are really gorgeous. What a nice room. I bet it feels to start anew. Now for a lawn? :mrgreen:
